Automation, Amazon and making the job easier for the frontline clinical workforce are going to make healthcare news in 2023, according to Pixel Health Chief Revenue Officer Barbara Casey. Casey was a guest on a new episode of the Healthcare Rap podcast in which she shared her predictions for next year.
With a background in strategy, consulting and technology, she has unique insight into new developments in the industry and her conversation with host Jared Johnson ranged across a number of topics. Among the highlights:
- The number of concierge and non-insurance medical practices will increase
- Amazon and other retailers, such as Walmart and CVS, will make further inroads into healthcare
- Hospitals will increasingly use automation and robots to counter staffing shortages and work loads
The conversation, which also includes Sara Vaezy, EVP, Chief Strategy and Digital Officer of Providence, provides a fascinating look into the ways healthcare is changing.
