My primary responsibility as a futurist and change agent is to help healthcare leaders see more clearly the extraordinary transformation taking root in their industry today.

Following a well-received presentation to the American Medical Association in Washington, DC, last week, Futurist Jack Uldrich will deliver a keynote address to Optum leaders and employees on Wednesday, March 12th in Dallas, Texas. Uldrich’s presentation, “Why Future Trends in Healthcare Demand Unlearning Today,” will aid Optum in honing in on their three key drivers of transformative change: engaging the consumer, aligning care delivery and modernizing the health system infrastructure.

Chosen for his engaging style and informative views on health care, Jack Uldrich has also delivered presentations to the American Academies of Audiology and Neurology, Alcetel-Lucent/Verizon Forum on Wireless Healthcare, United Healthcare, IASIS Healthcare, Allina Hospitals, The Healthcare Trustees of New York, St. Jude Medical, and healthcare associations throughout the U.S. (A sample of his discussions on healthcare can be seen in this CNBC clip.)

His presentation for Optum, which is based on his two most recent books, "Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow" and "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future" as well as his popular article, "Top Ten Trends in Healthcare," will discuss how continued advances in information technologies, biotechnology, nanotechnology, robotics, radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, genomics, regenerative medicine, social networking and "Big Data" will radically transform the healthcare industry in the decade ahead.

Throughout the speech Uldrich will also focus on why these trends will demand unlearning and discuss why participants must embrace the concept of unlearning in order to achieve future success. He will conclude by reviewing specific habits, customs, beliefs and ideas that healthcare professionals can—and must—unlearn. His goal is to ensure his message of unlearning remains with his audience at Optum for years to come.

Uldrich also addresses a number of major, non-healthcare-related corporations on the topic of unlearning including PepsiCo, Cisco, IBM, WiPro, Guardian Life Insurance and General Electric.
