Joe Flower

Author, "How to Get What We Pay For: A Handbook for Healthcare Revolutionaries" & Healthcare Futurist Speaker Consultant

With over 37 years’ experience, Joe Flower has emerged as a thought leader on the deep forces changing healthcare in the United States and around the world. He has spoken to or consulted with hundreds of clients ranging from the World Health Organization, the Global Business Network, the U.K. National Health Service, the U.S. Department of Defense, and Fortune 100 companies, to the majority of state hospital associations in the U.S. as well as many of the provincial associations and ministries in Canada, and an extraordinary variety of other players across healthcare in every sector.
Flower is the author of How To Get What We Pay For: A Handbook for the Revolutionaries – Doctors, Nurses, Healthcare Leaders, Inventors, Investors, Employers, Insurers, Governments, Consumers, You. The book is a unique, comprehensive framework for understanding the systemic transformation underway in healthcare and a manual for how to make intelligent and strategic choices for oneself and for one’s organization.
Underpinning much of Flower’s writing is his extensive research into leadership and the change process on over 60 top thinkers on organizational change, including Peter Drucker, Peter Senge, and Ari de Geus. The project took him into the study of chaos theory, Eastern thought, and Aikido in which he eventually earned a black belt.
