How David is building a better working world

“My global role enables me to rethink the future of healthcare, especially the increased role of consumers, technology and social media. Whether by default or design, citizens are taking a larger responsibility for their own health, and with this comes seismic change.

The purchasing power is shifting from payers and providers to people - which in turn will increase demand for more value-driven care, transparency around price, and of course digital and mobile technologies. This is the disrupter we will welcome and facilitate over the next 3 to 5 years.”
