Chicago – (January 10, 2017) – Oliver Wyman is pleased to announce the launch of the Oliver Wyman Health podcast.  Featuring conversations with leaders from across the health landscape, the podcast explores the ideas and practices that will transform healthcare. Topics covered include the innovative approaches to shifting from volume to value, consumer engagement, consumer experience, digital health, care delivery models, leadership, and culture.

“Oliver Wyman is very committed to fostering a community of innovators and we are dedicated to advancing the vision of health transformation,” said Terry Stone, Global Managing Partner of the Health & Life Sciences practice. “Our podcast is another way we can engage with health innovators and share the ideas that will promote positive change in healthcare.”

Recent episodes feature:

  • Scott McDonald, CEO of Oliver Wyman. What happens when an industry loses the trust of its customers? Oliver Wyman’s CEO provides examples from his client experience in the financial services industry and urges healthcare organizations to focus on consumer needs to avoid a similar fate. 

  • Farzad Mostashari, MD, CEO of Aledade, a company he co-founded to help primary care doctors participate in value-based initiatives and form Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).  Dr. Mostashari explains why he thinks independent doctors may just be the heroes of the shift to value, and what it will take to get doctors to embrace the tools and behaviors needed to succeed in the value-based world.

  • Glen Tullman, chairman and CEO of Livongo Health, a consumer digital health company that has developed a new approach for diabetes management. Glen explains how the health system has failed at chronic disease management and how the future of healthcare looks a lot like an OnStar.

  • Chris Waugh, chief innovation officer at Sutter Health. While design is often thought of something that enhances the beauty or functionality of an item or space, Chris explains how health innovators could use design to create a better healthcare experience.
