“Looking to the Future: Creating a Culture of Health” by Jonathan Peck

In his talk, “Looking to the Future: Creating a Culture of Health,” from NCHL’s Human Capital Investment Conference this past November, Jonathan Peck speaks about the future of the healthcare industry. Peck, from the Institute for Alternative Futures, outlines four alternative scenarios that help frame the discussion on American health and healthcare in the future. This work was supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Peck shows how leaders can create and sustain a tension between the futures that we expect or fear and those we can actually achieve through our actions. He concludes with four possible recommendations for achieving the future that we want. What is apparent throughout this talk is the opportunity and the need for new leadership to take hold to bring about change at a much more rapid rate. Take some time to watch Peck’s talk and to reflect on the ways you or your organization can work to achieve the best possible future in health and healthcare. What future do you find most desirable? What future do you think is most probable? How can leaders overcome this gap?
