Joe Flower is speaking to organizations both inside and outside healthcare because of how deeply and broadly this changing industry is affecting everyone.

And, because Joe tracks trends in other nations, partly as a way to understand our system better, he has brought value to organizations in countries as widespread as Canada, the UK, and China.

Inside healthcare, we work with a wide range of businesses and organizations, from hospitals and health networks to clinicians and their associations, to healthcare foundations, to vendors, insurers, pharmaceutical companies. It’s a long list that runs from small community hospitals and community clinics to the largest Fortune 500 companies, from associations of receptionists to exclusive gatherings of CEOs. If healthcare is not your market but you have a healthcare client, Joe is happy to help you get oriented and make some suggestions. That’s his specialty, drawing practical ideas from the “big picture” vision. He learns more about the scene he is studying by talking with you and his clients.

Although he’s been immersed in the details of healthcare for 30 years, Joe is a bridge, an interpreter, a communicator, a motivator with a vision from 50,000 feet as to where the current trends may be heading. He sees many examples of intelligent adaptation in the industry and ways in which entrepreneurs, investors, business leaders, and professionals can take their own steps to make a uniquely influential difference to the future of healthcare right now. He can draw that future image for each segment of the industry and each market. His stories help people picture themselves in action and help them to take action.

A Handbook for the Revolutionary; Changing Healthcare (Almost) Overnight
If you have anything to do with healthcare, the need to transform your organization, your career, and the healthcare system itself has become inescapable, a matter of simple survival. How do you crack the code? What are the operational instructions for causing rapid change in healthcare? For employers, insurers, hospitals and health systems, physicians; what can your group do that will help secure your jobs and your organization's place in the new system, while providing better healthcare than ever for you, for your families, and for your community for decades to come? There's no choice any more: You must be a revolutionary to make it in the coming years.
Healthcare Beyond Reform
Doing It Right for Half The Cost: There is only one way to do healthcare for far less money, and that is to do it far better, for everyone. The answer is not political, but lies inside healthcare itself, in five specific strategies detailed in Joe Flower's new book to be published in March 2012. This is a powerful talk, a hopeful vision, a practical roadmap for healthcare, a challenge and an inspiration to everyone involved.
2012 through 2014, Politics, the Law, and Industry Transformation
These three years will rock healthcare to its foundations. The dynamics are far more complex and the currents far more compelling than they seem on the surface. We need much deeper clarity than we can get from network talking heads. It's time to untangle the political, legal, and healthcare industry threads.
The X Questions, Strategy for the Next Healthcare
2012 through 2014 present a unique and compelling opportunity for healthcare executives to drive deep change. The key questions are different now from what they were in the past, even from what they were last year. Most of today's healthcare CEOs and C-suite leaders are missing many of the key questions they need to ask to drive strategy now, this year, this budget, in order to survive the next three to seven years. Which of these ten strategy questions are you missing? If we hope to be, as Buckminister Fuller said, "Architects of the future, not its victims," we have to change the way we think in specific ways.
Employers' Framework, How to Get Better Health and Healthcare for Less
If you want to drive your healthcare costs down - while helping your employees to better health - you have to act like a CEO and take charge of your supply chain. Employers across the country have been employing a new mindset and specific new strategies to get cheaper, better healthcare. Here's how to tackle the problem for your organization.
The Next Healthcare, The Path of Survival and Growth For You and Your Profession
Healthcare is changing rapidly. 2012 through 2014 will be the most unstable years we have ever seen. Everyone in healthcare, from physicians and nurses to pharmacists and insurance brokers, is wondering what to do: What is the best path forward, for their part of healthcare and for them personally? In talks over the past two years, Joe Flower has been advising groups as diverse as hospital executives, physicians, nurses, physical therapists, pharmaceutical marketers, independent pharmacists, health plans, health insurance brokers and consultants, community health groups, free clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, home health providers, emergency physicians, healthcare suppliers, device manufacturers, and healthcare information companies. Whatever your group, Flower's practical, useful insights and analysis will help you plan your future better.
