The greatest change in the future of medicine will be the rate of change itself.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
The 2014 National Advocacy Conference (NAC) will take place in Washington, DC, from March 4-6, 2014. And futurist Jack Uldrich will kickoff the event with his keynote speech, “The Big AHA: How to Future Proof the AMA Leaders Against Tomorrow’s Transformational Trends, Today.” Through the NAC, physicians will have the opportunity to discuss advocacy issues, attend educational sessions on a variety of topics, and visit with their representatives on Capitol Hill.
Uldrich will be giving the AMA leaders a sneak peek at his upcoming book, “Business as Unusual: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow’s Transformational Trends, Today.” He will outline the top ten trends in information and communication technologies, robotics, cloud computing, next generation mobile and social technologies, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, genomics, wearable technologies, the “Internet of Things” and “Big Data.” He will discuss how these technologies, and physicians’ use of them, will help improve health outcomes, accelerate changes in medical education, and enhance job satisfaction by striving toward less paperwork and more quality time with patients. The speech is specifically designed to provide AMA attendees with a solid foundation upon which they can take action to create their own, and the Association’s, success by identifying a series of concrete actions to take in order to future-proof themselves against the “tides of tomorrow.”
In the past year, Jack Uldrich, who is also recognized as a leading expert in the field of change management and unlearning, has addressed hundreds of organizations both nationally and internationally. Recent engagements include the Million Dollar Round Table in Malaysia, The Allan P. Kirby Lecture Series at Wilkes University.
