About BetterDoctor’s Panel:
Shopping for health care sucks. Consumers do not shop for health care as they shop for retail, travel, or real estate because it often only happens when there’s a health emergency. But the tides have turned and the consumerization of healthcare is on it’s way regardless of what way the ACA policy debate swings. This panel brings together diverse voices who have built real consumer platforms to find care. From improving design, the accuracy of provider data to increasing transparency and access, speakers will go over what it will take for improving the health care shopping experience.
