Jeff Goldsmith to keynote OHA Annual Convention Nov. 1

Posted on: 8/9/17


Jeff Goldsmith, PhD, a health care futurist, will present “The Turning: Responding with Discipline to the Challenge of Health System Transformation,” during the keynote session of the OHA Convention & Trade Show on Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Dr. Goldsmith is president of Health Futures, Inc., a national advisor for Navigant Healthcare, and an associate professor of public health sciences at the University of Virginia. For more than 20 years, he has analyzed issues facing the health care industry, including the future of information technology; implications of new biotechnology developments; health care trend analysis; the internet’s impact on medicine; the future of managed care; and integrated health systems.

In his presentation, Dr. Goldsmith will discuss the keys to successful transformation in order to survive in a value-based world. Health care organizations must transform themselves from passive producers of care to active managers of health care value in the coming decade. Only health enterprises that can actively manage and improve the value of their clinical effort will transcend the coming shakeout in the U.S. health system.

Health Futures, Inc. was founded by Dr. Goldsmith as a firm specializing in corporate strategic planning and forecasting future health care trends. He is one of America’s premier health care futurists.

Plan now to attend the OHA Annual Convention & Trade Show, “A New Era in Health Care: What Does the Future Hold?,” Nov. 1-3, Cox Convention Center & Renaissance Hotel, Oklahoma City. Watch for additional details and registration materials in the coming weeks. (Mary Winters)
