INTERRUPTION

After redefining their own industries, major tech,
retail, and finance players now have their sights
set on healthcare By Jennifer Kovacs Silvis
WITH JUST a few words, Apple became the latest dis-

ruptor of healthcare.
According to numerous reports, the tech giant
is behind the launch of a new group of health clinics called AC Wellness that will serve Apple employees and their families starting this spring.
Although little has been shared about the endeavor,
a description posted on the website acwellness.com
offers a glimpse, promising trusting, accessible relationships with patients, enabled by technology;
high-quality care; and a unique patient experience.
Job postings on the site seek physicians as well as care navigators who will
collaborate with the primary care team. Candidates must have an appreciation for the patient experience and a passion for population health.
The concepts aren't new, but neither was the cell phone. And I, for one, can't
wait to see the "iClinic."
The Apple news comes on the heels of another shakeup by major corporations. Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JP Morgan Chase & Co. announced
they're partnering to provide healthcare solutions that reduce cost and improve satisfaction and outcomes for their U.S. employees. Warren Buffett,
Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO, didn't mince words on what's driving the move. "The ballooning costs of healthcare act as a hungry tapeworm
on the American economy. Our group does not come to this problem with answers. But we also do not accept it as inevitable," he said in a press release.
Even Uber is transforming access to and cost of care. A research study from
the University of Kansas released in late 2017 cited a 7 percent reduction in
ambulance use in cities where the rideshare service has been introduced-a
good thing, according to reports. Uber frees up ambulances for the sickest of
patients, reducing wait times and improving outcomes, and offers a low-cost
option to the uninsured who otherwise may not have sought treatment.
This is the healthcare landscape today. And tomorrow it will likely change
again, and the day after that, and the day after that. Patients are demanding it,
and financial realities are requiring it.
What does that mean for you? "It's an exciting time to be a designer," said
one respondent to Healthcare Design's recent 2018 A/E/C Survey, regarding
the disruption healthcare is experiencing today.
From supporting new care models and technologies to creating efficiency
and flexibility to delivering a meaningful patient experience, the role of
design partners is evolving right alongside healthcare itself. Given what's
happened within just a few months, I think it's safe to say that evolution
will only continue-it must. In the meantime, to see more on where we are,
for now, check out the survey results on page 28. 
