Given the persistent and worsening challenges of providing health and medical care that results in optimal healthiness; equitable and reliable access to quality and safe clinical care; and cost effective use of increasingly expensive health care assets, it would seem inevitable that traditional health care providers and systems would embrace the mandate for expeditious change and improvement. However, given the relative lethargy of the healing professions and their organizations, as well as the entrenched interests of key stakeholders, appropriate change has been slow to develop.

As such, new entrants are emerging with significant disruptive capabilities in data and analytics; individual engagement tools that advance the health care expectations of individuals in an increasingly consumer-centric economy; and new models for more coherently organizing broader arrays of health and medical care assets. As these new entrants compete and integrate with traditional care systems, rapid change is occurring.

This lecture outlines the new and exciting opportunities for optimal health outcomes and that pose new challenges for the health of nation that will require thoughtful attention.
