THE FUTURE OF FLORIDA’S HEALTHCARE WORKFORCE
A Conversation at the Florida Chamber Foundation 2018 Future of Florida Forum
September 26-27, 2018
There are many challenges facing the healthcare industry but few are simple and able to be addressed in a straight-forward manner. Increasing demand for health care is driven by an expanding and aging population, a more knowledgeable consumer expecting higher quality care and exercising their right of choice, and the health care reform movement transitioning to a values-based, demand driven model.
Is Florida positioned to provide an adequate number of appropriately educated and skilled workers to meet the health industry’s talent needs? Do we have a skills imbalance and knowledge gap, what is the impact of future innovation and technology? In other words, are we positioned to meet the health needs of Floridians today and into the future?
