Indu Subaiya from Health 2.0 recently interviewed Ann Mond Johnson about lessons she’s learned from leading multiple innovative health care companies.
Excerpt from the interview:
Indu Subaiya: How do you think the world will change for consumers with these health insurance exchanges that we are anticipating? It certainly seems like a need for ConnectedHealth will be even greater as we look at the horizon.
Ann: We certainly believe the need is going to become greater and we have certainly seen this. Not just with the health insurance exchanges but with the fact that employers are talking more and more about shifting from a defined benefit to defined contribution, and creating an environment where the consumer has a pocket of money to deal with and is making decisions that best reflect the needs of their family and themselves at that point in time.
Indu Subaiya: Right, and that’s been a spectrum that’s been moving in that direction for a while now.
Ann: I think that regardless of what happens with the Supreme Court, the reality from our perspective is the retail focus and making things more understandable for consumers is going to expand.
