Event Recap: December 5th, Scott Becker, Publisher and Founder of Becker’s HealthCare

Scott BeckerScott Becker, Publisher and Founder of Becker’s HealthCare and Becker’s Hospital Review joined us on December 5th at Children’s Hospital to discuss “Healthcare as a Zero-Sum Game–Who are the Winners and Losers Past and Future?”

Scott talked about some of the changes that have occurred in the past 3-5 years in the industry and some of the changes or “headwinds” coming in the next five to ten years including Pharma costs, Payors expanding into the provider markets, labor costs in the very intensive healthcare market, bricks and mortar —a Dinosaur?, big tech entering healthcare space, siphoning off of high profit ancillaries, and better paying commercial patients as patients go on to Medicare and employer clinics.

Below are some “shots” of Scott, D.U. Healthcare Mgmt Masters Program attendees (our sponsor) and other guests enjoying the meeting. We had a great turnout for Scott’s presentation–the largest since Donna Lynne spoke in December, 2016. Makes us wonder what 2019 will bring!!

Much thanks to Bobbie Kite, Academic Director, DU Healthcare Mgmt Masters Program and her students who volunteered to help with our meeting.!! Thanks everyone!
