    Healthcare Innovation Through The Lens Of Abundance: Ayelet Baron

    in Business

    One of the biggest challenges in healthcare is that we are still using practices that are stuck in the 1900s.  Ayelet Baron, Futurist and Chief Instigator at Simplifying Work is our guest today and we are going to take a deep dive into the concept of abundance and its impact on healthcare. Think back to the 19th century, where we did not have enough, and lived in a world of scarcity driven by economic depression and war; we had to take from others and had a deficiency mindset. In the 20th century we reshaped management practices based on scarcity where we needed to compete to survive, and now the 21st century, with a mindset of abundance, we discover unique opportunities to create new markets, products and services. 

    Healthcare is part of the mix because it is scrambling to meet new expectations from the informed consumer.   Organizations that make a commitment to thinking from a perspective of abundance will optimize strategies by collaborating across industry walls and including the voice of the healthcare consumer to continuously generate and manage insights.  Ayelet will share where the concept of abundance is in play and making an impact. Please join us as we put Ayelet in the innovation hot seat
