Technology that can replace, or at least supplement, human labor will dramatically reshape healthcare in the future.
That was the message Keith Brophy, director of the Business Lab for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Emerging Markets, brought to St. Petersburg Wednesday morning.
“We do live in this world of new possibilities. The future ahead is one of health care disruption,” Brophy said at the Sunny Side Up speaker series, presented by the Kate Tiedemann College of Business at USF St. Petersburg and the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership.
An increasing number of baby boomers who are turning 65 will propel disruption in the healthcare industry. Over the next 15 years, the number of people in the United States who are 65 and over will quadruple.
