Healthcare’s Report Card:
How Well Are We Serving the Needs of Patients Across the Life Cycle

How well is the healthcare industry serving the needs of girls and women—from members of Generation Z, and young, stay-at-home mothers, to C-Suite executives in their ‘40s and recently retired seniors?


Women tend not to put their lives in boxes. They seek the same experiences from healthcare that they get from the best airlines, restaurants, retail stores or hotels. They rely on interactive digital channels like telehealth, wearables and mobile devices and want more options, access, and convenience than ever before. And they have renewed power to choose from among traditional providers, retail clinics, urgent care centers, and virtual care.


Join us as we explore how healthcare cares for girls and women. Among the issues we plan to discuss:

  • How healthcare fails and succeeds at supporting girls and women at varied stages of the life-cycle

  • The design and deploy consumer-centric models that meet the needs of girls and women

  • Improving women’s access to care by integrating digital and mobile technologies

  • Creating a culture that honors, respects and responds to the healthcare needs of women consumers

  • Identifying emerging trends for women healthcare consumers

  • The impact and changing nature of women healthcare consumers as healthcare brokers and decision makers across generations

  • The differences between and within generations of women—Generation Z vs. Millennials vs. Generation X vs. Baby Boomers
