Joe Public 2030

On the ten-year anniversary of the original Joe Public Doesn’t Care About Your Hospital book, we look ahead to the next decade to predict the state of consumer engagement in the world of healthcare.

Five potent predictions reshaping how consumers engage healthcare

On the ten-year anniversary of the release of the original Joe Public Doesn’t Care About Your Hospital book, author Chris Bevolo and Revive have set their sights a decade in the future with Joe Public 2030: Five Potent Predictions Reshaping How Consumers Engage Healthcare. The book explores five key ways consumer health engagement may change over the coming decade, covering everything from AI and personal monitoring to consumerism, new competition, the politicization of healthcare, and growing health disparities. The book makes five bold predictions about that future, which range from exciting and promising to ominous and discouraging.

Based on insights developed by a team of researchers, strategists, and futurists at Revive, the five core predictions are supported by more than 250 resource citations and input from 22 industry experts who were interviewed for the book, including health system CEOs, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and physicians. The purpose of the book is to spark conversation about how the future of health and healthcare in the U.S. might emerge, and how individuals and organizations might want to prepare for – or even change – that future.

This is Bevolo’s seventh book and the fourth (and final) installment in the Joe Public series. The book is scheduled for release in January 2022.
