The Strategy& Insider podcast aims to explore some of the most critical future trends and their impacts. Strategy& talks to industry experts and leading practitioners from different sectors. The conversations will make you more familiar with key developments by providing you with insights that really matter. The first season will tackle some of the most fundamental questions in the healthcare industry. While technology has quickly transformed how we shop, bank, and travel, it yet has to impact on how we receive healthcare.

Together with experts across all sectors including pharma executives, leading academics and practitioners at hospitals we will discuss how the healthcare industry is expected to change.
