Hands-On Healthcare Transformation in Chicago


Live from #OWHIC, we explore four of the Windy City's most innovative organizations.

Oliver Wyman Health

Editor's Note: We're in Chicago this week, reporting live from the seventh annual Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit, called "Building for Impact: Designing the Healthcare Landscape". Here, over 400 health industry senior executives from over 200 companies, 38 states, and 12 healthcare ecosystem sectors are convening over three days to create a step-change in impact. As part of the Summit, attendees took one of four on-site, interactive "Inspiration Tours" to learn first-hand how some of Chicago's most cutting-edge and innovative healthcare facilities are helping reshape the greater market in areas like customer experience, email management, patient recovery, and consumer buying habits. Here's a summary of memorable moments.
