Healthcare is a complicated field to cover. Let us help you make it a lot simpler.

Healthcare is a huge chaotic mess o’ change. Or is it?

If you have a lot of leads and sources, but you’re still not seeing the Big Picture, you might want to talk with Joe Flower.

Flower offers a fresh, pithy, and clear point of view as a 30-year veteran industry insider who can explain the developments and the Big Picture in a way that the public understands. He can share

  • a distinctive systemic 50,o00 foot view of the global and U.S. transformations in healthcare,
  • the strategic organizational view for successful change,
  • and the face-to-face stories from thousands from the U.S. and all over the world

A journalist in his own right, Flower knows where the story is and who can hear it. He’s recognized for his vivid, personal style, his hard-won clarity, and his deep compassion. He’s not just a wonk, he’s committed to helping people understand what’s possible.

Here’s a client list and what many have said about his work as a healthcare futurist, healthcare speaker, and consultant.

Why Now?

Flower is now going to a broader audience, beyond healthcare, because the iron is hot, trends that he has long predicted are coming to fruition. He’s taking a risk and taking a stand on what works. It’s time for action.

New Book:

How to Get What We Pay For: A Handbook for Healthcare Revolutionaries – Doctors, Nurses, Healthcare Leaders, Inventors, Investors, Employers, Insurers, Governments, Consumers, You.

In the book Flower takes six groups of readers through the steps they need to take to protect themselves in the current state of healthcare while helping to push hard on the already tilting system, forcing it to give all of us MUCH better healthcare, MUCH cheaper, without rationing.

Who Are We Talking To?

The book is a critical tool for people

  • buying healthcare
  • leading or managing healthcare
  • selling into the market,
  • investing in the market,
  • planning their career in healthcare.

The Surprises:

Healthcare is undergoing historic change. It’s hard to overestimate the scope and implications. Here are some surprises:

  • Most citizens will tell you it’s all about Obamacare. It’s not
  • Many believe that with the Supreme Court ruling it’s settled. It’s not.
  • U.S. healthcare is changing fast and the rest of the world is watching. Flower has spoken and consulted globally and can explain how healthcare developments in other countries affect U.S. healthcare, and vice versa
  • We hear about digital records, the need for transparency, new inventions, but Flower steps back and puts all the elements of change in healthcare into a coherent picture. He lays out how Seven Levers of Change must work together to transform healthcare and how the people getting this right are the ones who are winning.
  • Flower has highly specific advice for
    • consumers: Don’t just pay your hospital bills
    • employers: spend big on your sickest employees
    • governments: roll back these regulations
    • healthcare leaders: learn to think with this new mind, and use the Seven Levers to succeed in your markets
    • investors and entrepreneurs: where to look internationally and how to think systemically to find big opportunities in healthcare
