Healthcare Disruption – Uncovering Disruptive Innovation Opportunities to Transform Health Care

Dr. Soren Kaplan’s work with disruptive innovation in healthcare spans corporate and industry conference keynote presentations, leadership development programs, and strategy development with CEO’s and executive leadership from across the healthcare industry.

Dr. Kaplan has delivered keynote speaking and strategy projects to a wide range of organizations, including HMO’s like Kaiser Permanente, Catholic Health systems like Ascension Healthcare, Associations like the Academy of Family Physicians, Medical Device companies like Medtronic, Pharmaceutical companies like Roche, Medical Equipment companies like Philips Healthcare, and service providers including long term care facilities and home care providers.

During Dr. Kaplan’s keynotes, his audiences:

  • Learn about the different types of innovation – from incremental to disruptive
  • Obtain principles and practices for innovating products, services, process, and business models – with tips for innovating in “regulated industries”
  • Gain insight from real-world trailblazers both inside and outside of the healthcare industry
  • Instantly apply new knowledge to real challenges or opportunities through interactive, facilitated group breakouts

Soren’s engaging keynote jump started our event and got the entire audience thinking about how we can transform the healthcare landscape. He tailored his message to our company, worked collaboratively, and delivered both strategic insights and practical ideas that we can use moving forward.

As a professional conference organizer, we initially asked Soren to deliver a top level, executive education workshop to kickoff an event with over 300 C-Suite executives from the healthcare industry. The feedback was so outstanding we invited him back to lead a similar discussion at another event. Soren’s unique ability to tailor his message, facilitate collaboration, and push the thinking of senior executives, puts him in the top tier of speakers we work with.
