Healthcare Reimagined

Takeaways from BDO’s 2023 Healthcare Reimagined: Prescription for Resilience Forum

Prescription for Resilience

We’re living in turbulent times, defined by high inflation, rising interest rates, an ongoing labor shortage and the strain of an enduring pandemic. This is the kind of environment that can break an organization — or make it. For the healthcare and life sciences industries, the risks are clear. Fortunately, so too are the opportunities for innovation and growth.

During the J.P. Morgan 2023 Healthcare Conference, BDO curated panels of industry experts and thought leaders to explore what it takes for healthcare and life sciences companies to successfully navigate the trials ahead and come out stronger than before. 


Time to Thrive: Overcoming Adversity with Resilience

Rewriting the Healthcare Playbook: How Patients are Shifting the Status Quo

Patients have made it clear that the traditional healthcare institution doesn’t work for them. That’s why they’re turning to patient-centric solutions — and driving an industry-shaking shift toward consumerism in the process. We surveyed over 2,000 patients to understand what they really want and share insights on how to earn their loyalty.
