It was a pleasure to moderate a panel on Managing Health & Wellness in an Aging Population at the Columbia Business School Alumni Reunion on April 13, 2018. The number of Americans ages 65 and older is set to increase from 46 million today to over 98 million by 2060, and their share of the total population will rise to nearly 24% from 15%.
Our panelists came from diverse backgrounds and were able to offer many insights into how the health business community is addressing this population shift: from the movement toward providing care outside a hospital setting (aging in place) to population health strategies to novel therapies being developed.
