As more companies shift to a global stage, Margaret Wilson, M.D., chief medical officer and senior vice president at UnitedHealthcare Global, has identified a phenomenon that has a direct impact on the well-being and productivity of employees: Healthcare insecurity. This phenomenon, she says, puts both companies and employees at unnecessary risk, due to:

  • Fear-based decision-making
  • Misperceptions around access to quality health care
  • Lack of objective information
  • Cultural challenges
In a recent survey of 360 senior executives from multinational companies, conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit and UnitedHealthcare Global, 96 percent said that, to pursue global growth, they needed new ways of addressing increased health and security travel risks for their globally mobile employees.

In this program, Wilson will outline her vision for moving from Healthcare insecurity to optimized health outcomes, improved productivity, ease of administration and overall peace of mind.
