CarepathRx CEO John Figueroa’s Closing Remarks at the Future of Healthcare Symposium

MERCER ISLAND, Wash., Nov. 17, 2021 – The sixth-annual Future of Healthcare Symposium explored the ever-evolving healthcare industry and the accelerating pace of change with the theme, High Impact Healthcare. CarepathRx Chairman and CEO John Figueroa led a dialogue that examined disruptive technologies and the agility needed to innovate faster and improve overall outcomes by breaking the traditional boundaries of healthcare systems.

In his closing remarks, Mr. Figueroa summarizes the central topics of the conference and key takeaways from the guests, as well as his thoughts regarding the future of healthcare and the inevitable changes to come. Key messages included: 

  • COVID-19 demonstrated that, even in an exceedingly complex industry like healthcare, change can come quickly when necessary.
  • The industry also saw increased positive collaboration between FDA and drug manufacturers/developers. 
  • The pandemic has accelerated the shift of care from hospitals to outpatient settings – with the preferred site of care being the home.
  • Technical advances allow more care to be delivered in a patient-friendly outpatient setting.
  • Consumer expectations around virtual and digital healthcare are rising, and business processes will need to change to meet those expectations. 

The Future of Healthcare Symposium is organized annually by the Pepperdine University Graziadio Business School. Watch Mr. Figueroa’s full remarks below.
