WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — John Sculley, one of America’s well-known business leaders who is perhaps best known as the former CEO of Apple, shared his insights on the secular change currently underway within the U.S. healthcare system on Friday during a private event sponsored by The Drug Store News Group.
“The era of consumer health is here and will touch a lot of high-cost points in our [healthcare] system,” Sculley told attendees. “… I believe the era of consumer health care is going to be the thing to solve a big part of our healthcare problem.”
Sculley, who today is a national spokesman in the $2.8 trillion healthcare industry, outlined the secular disruption underway within health care — hich he says will spell higher consumer deductibles — and discussed his new telehealth company MDLive and the role that it can play in improving access to care and curbing costs.
