To drive sustainable change in healthcare and deliver better care for people everywhere, we need new thinking to realize creative and innovative health and wellness solutions—and the time for change is now.
I’m in Orlando, Florida this week to speak at the Lake Nona Impact Forum, an inspiring annual event which brings together more than 250 health and wellness thought leaders who all share a common goal: solving today’s problems and stimulating positive change in the future of health for humanity.
At Johnson & Johnson our mission is to enable people to get well and stay well. We are proud to once again be a presenting sponsor of #LNIF2018 and have supported this important Forum since its inception six years ago. Lake Nona, a unique planned community designed for healthy living, is the inspiring backdrop for this year’s dialogue about Building an Ecosystem of Wellbeing.
Lake Nona is also home to the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute, where we’ve pioneered behavior change science for more than 30 years and have trained professional athletes, military Special Forces, healthcare professionals and providers, and Fortune 500 CEOs in the field of high performance and energy management.
Over the next three days, I’ll be talking with some of the best and brightest minds in the world about how Johnson & Johnson is leveraging science, technology, behavioral science and care-centered design thinking to develop products and solutions that will fundamentally change how people are cared for around the world.
The challenges facing healthcare today are complex. Traditional health systems are unprepared for an aging, growing population that is also living longer – and basic health needs remain costly and out of reach for the world’s most vulnerable. At the same time, advances in technology are rapidly transforming health care and empowering consumers to take charge of their health and wellbeing.
As the largest and most diverse healthcare company in the world, we believe that we have a responsibility to lead the next frontier of health and wellbeing for humanity. However, we know that no one company or organization can do it alone. Venues like the Lake Nona Impact Forum enable us to work with partners across the healthcare ecosystem– business, industry, academia and government—to address the challenges and opportunities we face in today’s rapidly changing environment.
Healthcare is ripe for disruption, but if we do this together, people around the world will live better and healthier lives.
