Given the current and unprecedented disruptions, one element looms large and significantly influences all sectors of our economy: healthcare. Accounting for an astounding 18.3 percent of the U.S. GDP, the healthcare system’s vastness and complexity echo through the workforce, from healthcare professionals to workers insured by employer-sponsored programs. But how, precisely, is the impact of healthcare shaping the modern workforce? And what does this mean for the individual employee?

In a new episode of “DisruptEd,” host Ron Stefanski and co-host Larry Yuhasz, tackle these pressing questions with Craig Froude, the CEO and founder of MedZero, for the show’s healthcare edition. With a focus on the intersection of workforce, technology, and healthcare, this episode sheds light on the often-overlooked impact of healthcare on the workforce landscape.
