“I see health care changing more in the next 20 years than it has in the last 100, and technology will play a huge role in that. Advanced analytics, machine learning and AI – and the incredible people behind the machines – will finally deliver on the cost, quality and experience goals we hope for. For a long time, I’ve used the tagline, 'The future of health is together,' and I believe a healthier future will truly require the involvement of all of us.” Alex Maiersperger Global Principal, Health Care US-Based
