New research to be launched at event, key sessions also available on Facebook Live

NEW YORK– Nov. 6 – More than 350 senior healthcare executives committed to innovation will join forces at The Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, TX from Nov 6 – 8, 2017 for this year’s fifth annual Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit.

This invitation-only event, titled Industry Interrupted: Delivering on the Promise of Change, brings together executives, experts, and influencers from across the globe to discuss and explore disruption in healthcare. New research on lessons learned from other industries will be launched at the event. The research provides a roadmap for how healthcare could be drastically reshaped.

“There is uncertainty in nearly every corner of healthcare and many stakeholders are watching events unfold and trying to determine how the uncertainty impacts them,” said Terry Stone, global managing partner of the Oliver Wyman Health and Life Sciences practice. “Our research and this Summit cover the disruptive forces that progressive healthcare leaders must understand in order to drive the change consumers will demand while also maintaining their competitive edge.”
