“Prediction is difficult, especially about the future.” While this is undoubtedly true, there are plenty of signals amid the noise as to the direction we’re taking the industry. What are the best ways to plan for the future growth and changes? And to bring patients along for the journey.

Major themes:

• The best ways to recognize the changes now that will result in future shifts to our landscape

• Recognizing what is actual ‘signal’ and what is ‘noise’

• The ever-changing role of the consumer… How the patient journey matters to us more and more
