There are key dynamics shaping the health care industry including a new inflection point to address the rising cost of care, the proliferation of consumerism and an unprecedented acceleration of medical innovation. At CVS Health, our strategic imperatives that will guide our approach to transforming the health care system are to be local, make it simple and improve health. Our goal is to support better engagement through a combination of both the human touch and through a digitally connected experience throughout the entire health care system. Enhancing the ways we engage providers is essential to enhancing the ways we engage patients. As such, this session will focus on a variety of physician collaboration and engagement strategies CVS Health is employing that are transforming our ability to make care local, make it simple and improve health.
