With a growing shortage of primary care physicians and more and more people entering the health care system, convenient and affordable health care services are needed now more than ever. That’s according to CVS Health CEO Larry Merlo. Merlo sat down with Nightly Business Report’s Susie Gharib to discuss the reasons behind the company’s broadening focus on health, which recently aired on PBS stations across the country.
As the health care landscapes changes, consumers have more responsibility and accountability for their health care decisions. Merlo describes it as the “retailization of health care,” and he said CVS Health is seizing the opportunity to become a go-to place for people to get healthy.
