Calls to revamp the U.S. health care system have been ringing out for years, certainly long before this current crisis. Patients are frustrated – and doctors have good reason to feel the same. They’re hamstrung by a system struggling to operate efficiently, effectively, profitably and in a way that does not lead to provider burnout.

Health care futurist and telehealth pioneer Lyle Berkowitz, MD, FACP, FHIMSS, has spent most of his career focusing on realistic solutions to redesigning health care, including helping physicians and medical groups maneuver the use of electronic medical records (EMRs), telehealth and other digital technologies to increase quality, efficiency and bottom lines.

With the current system buckling under the weight of the COVID-19 crisis, Dr. Berkowitz – CEO of Back9 Healthcare Consulting, past Chief Medical Officer of MDLIVE and past Director of Innovation at Northwestern Medicine – sees an urgent need for providers, medical groups and hospitals to adopt his model of automating and virtualizing care so they can position themselves for long-term success.

On April 23, from 12 noon to 1:30 PM (EST), Dr. Berkowitz will outline that model and share his vision for a more streamlined health care system.

Dr. Berkowitz will be joined by a distinguished panel of health care industry principals, from CEOs to investors, to introduce various options and to explore possibilities for transforming the industry. Topics of discussion will include:

  • The changing paradigm of care delivery and its impact on independent physician practices
  • Why pivot? Hedging the real risks of change and future uncertainty
  • Strategic options for physician groups to consider: pros and cons
  • What is the “value” of my physician group?

Beyond these webinars, Dr. Berkowitz can customize a virtual presentation or workshop for your organization. He is also available to meet with key decision makers confidentially. Contact us to discuss how his expertise can help move your organization into the future.
