Innovative Health Care

Description

Health care delivery has undergone a revolution over the past 50 years. The concept of consumerism and managing one’s own interactions with providers has driven patients, providers and payers to look for new methods of care delivery. At the same time, expectations for health outcomes vary greatly by disease state and the patient’s responsibility for participating in programs aimed at adherence and health care utilization underestimated. While technological advances have become an integral part in the revolution with interactive physician visits, physical exams and vital statistic monitoring being considered the norm, the impact on these advances has been less than optimal. What is working - and what is not - is explored from the perspective of the overall health and well-being of our society.

Dr. Bronstein has extensive experience in the health care industry from a clinical, pharmaceutical and managed care perspective. For the past 3 years she has managed the Walgreens Health Outcomes team, a group of clinical pharmacists responsible for assisting clients with managing their pharmacy spend while at the same time maintaining quality patient care. Prior to joining Walgreens, Kathryn was the VP of Medical Affairs at Ameritox, a laboratory focused on medication monitoring and genetics testing in the addiction space.
