    Health Management & Health Care Logistics

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, hosts Ron Bachman and Doug Field are live in the studio for a discussion on trends in population health management and how changes toward a consumer-centric health care model are affecting all stakeholders in the system.


    For the first segment on today's program, the hosts welcome Jack Curtis, founder and chief executive officer of Corporate Health Partners, to the show. A speaker at this June's FORUM & Expo, the chair of the Leadership Committee at HERO and an overall thought leader in health management, Jack discusses some of the latest trends in corporate wellness today. Jack and the hosts also cover the content of this June's FORUM & Expo general session, recent HERO research and how to engage the C-suite in corporate wellness efforts. 


    The second guest on this week's show is Robin Hooker, the director of healthcare marketing for UPS, a global leader in logistics. In this segment, Robin and the hosts discuss how the shift toward patient-centric care is affecting all participants in the health care system. Today, patients are choosing more direct-to-home deliveries; walk-in clinics, such as CVS Minute Clinic and MedPost Urgent Care, are on the rise; the middle class and aging populations in emerging markets are growing. These are impacting the health care supply chain immensely. With health care consumerism on the rise globally, logistics partners are required to innovate now more than ever to ensure a safe end-to-end shipping experience for biologics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more.

    Health Care Payments, Life Insurance and Health Incentives

    in Business

    On this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio, the hosts welcome two special guests to the program for a discussion on health care payments, health engagement, life insurance, health incentives and more.


    The first guest on the program will be Vineet Gulati, chief executive officer of HealthExpense. Similar to the shift from pension plans to individual retirement accounts years ago, employers are switching from defined benefit to a defined contribution that their employees control. Therefore, the employee-consumer today has to make more health insurance and health care purchasing decisions. This shift has been rapid, and consumers need to learn very quickly how to use vehicles like HSAs, FSAs and HRAs to cope with this expense-shift. In this interview, Vineet and the hosts will discuss what problems this shift is causing across the health care ecosystem and the innovations that are emerging to deal with these changes.


    For the second segment on the show, the hosts will talk with Tal Gilbert, senior vice president of marketing and innovation for The Vitality Group. Tal and the hosts will be discussing an innovative new solution that brings together life insurance and wellness incentives. John Hancock Insurance recently launched a new approach to life insurance in the U.S. that rewards people for healthy living. Developed through an exclusive, first-ever life insurance partnership with The Vitality Group, the new solution integrates life insurance with a comprehensive healthy living program.
