How has the program changed the way you view healthcare?
My professional background and experiences have focused on problem solving from the business perspective. The program expanded my viewpoint to problem solve from the member/patient perspective. While slow on the uptake, the industry is finally starting to focus and solve on behalf of the patient experience. My learnings from the program have placed me ahead of the curve to solve patient centric problems.
