As a principal health care researcher for IFTF’s Health Horizons program, Rachel combines a deep understanding of health finance with an interest in the impact of new media and mobile personal technologies on health practices. She shares her perspective on the future of health, health care, and well-being as the author or co-author of numerous IFTF reports, as a speaker at health care conferences, and as a meeting facilitator at client workshops and strategic retreats. She serves on the Henry Ford Hospital and Medical Group National Advisory Council.
Rachel’s research efforts center on the intersection of health care delivery systems and mobile technologies. She studies how smart, mobile, and increasingly less expensive technologies are transforming self-care and beginning to disrupt clinical care. She has been a contributor to the Health Horizons program’s annual forecast perspectives, map of the decade, and annual retreats since 2006. Rachel holds a BA in politics from Oberlin College and an MPAff (master of public affairs) from the University of Texas at Austin.
