Transforming U.S. Health Care: Merlo at Spotlight Health Festival

In a three-part video series, Larry Merlo, President and Chief Executive Officer for CVS Health, joins Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson and CNBC health care reporter Bertha Coombs for an in-depth conversation on the accelerated pace of change in health care and how innovation, investments in technology, emerging business models and new competition are transforming the $3.6 trillion health care industry sector. The discussion took place during Spotlight Health, the three-day health conference and opening segment of the 2018 Aspen Ideas Festival.

“Today’s health care system has become increasingly fragmented and complex for consumers to navigate and afford. And without true innovation, more Americans will simply be without health care in the future,” said Merlo. “I am pleased to share the ways our company is transforming health care in America today, and the bold ways we will drive health care transformation in the future that will reshape how health care is accessed and delivered with the patient at the center of all that we do.”
