Ready or Not…Here Comes the Future of American Healthcare
In response to a simultaneous labor shortfall and the escalating medical requirements of an aging population, healthcare in America is transforming itself from a profession of practitioner-owned small businesses into a corporation-dominated consumer service industry in order to improve productivity and achieve greater economies of scale.

Futurist David Pearce Snyder describes how a combination of demographic and economic necessities will force the accelerated adoption of information technology throughout America’s healthcare system, increasing the quality of U.S. medical services and reducing their costs, while using residential and mobile telemedicine systems to deliver superior personal diagnostics and inhome care for most chronically ill and convalescent patients by 2020.

Cybertunity’s Knocking! New IT and the Future of Management
History has shown that the most potent socio-economic effects of a new technology do not occur until 60 to 70 years following its invention. This means that the current decade will see the most widespread transformational applications of computing power in daily life and work. These innovations – including e-mobility, social networks, cloud computing, "big data" analysis and consumerized workplace IT – are already changing the operating environment for all forms of public and private enterprise, posing multiple challenges and opportunities for management at every level of enterprise.

Consulting Futurist David Pearce Snyder will describe how newly matured information technologies will revitalize the deleveraged American economy by boosting productivity, creating new businesses and changing the ways in which clients are served, enterprises are organized, and human resources are developed and managed.

Welcome to “The New Normal” A Strategic Assessment of the Next Ten Years in America
Over the past 5 years, America has entered a period of accelerated demographic, economic and technologic change. With every passing year, it becomes clearer that many of these changes are not cyclic, but permanent. We are now living in what the pundits call a “New Normal,” whose basic realities include: [1] an aging population/workforce; [2] an austere economy; [3] pervasive technology; [4] data-intensive decision making; and [5] an increasingly complex operating environment.

Futurist David Pearce Snyder will deliver an INSTANT PREPLAY© of the next 5 to 10 years, and point out the imperatives and opportunities that will confront America's public institutions and their leaders as they pursue optimal performance in a time of rapid innovation and change.
