​ACHE (1.5) Face to Face Credits Panel Discussion:
Disruptive Innovation in Healthcare Delivery

Disruptive innovation, a term coined by Harvard professor Clayton M. Christensen, is a transformative business model that leverages technology to help focus on making products and services more accessible and affordable. In healthcare delivery, disruptive innovations have the potential to decrease costs while improving both the quality and accessibility of care. Disruptive innovations enable new applications and changes in behaviors. The current thinking with many innovators is a belief that a host of disruptive innovations would have wide implications for payers by shifting payment models to reward precision diagnostic tests and abilities of providers. Several current disruptive innovations like retail clinics, telemedicine, medical tourism, and point-of-care medical payments could make a major difference in how health care is reshaped in the near future. This panel will focus on the role of innovation in the medical marketplace and examples of disruptive innovations that will change lives in health care.
