Douglas C. Dyer
Central Penn Business Group on Health
Dyer has served in his current position for one year.
He said the health care industry has been rapidly adapting to keep up with technology.
According to Dyer, there’s been an increase in telemedicine/virtual care, especially by millennials who are a majority of the workforce, and companies are using health care data to reduce cost, improve access and provide better treatment to patients. He said there’s also increased interest in risk-based primary care models, in-home based care plans and mental/behavioral health since it impacts physical health.
Dyer considers three different people as formal mentors based on their wisdom that had a lifechanging impact on his life.
“I have expressed my deep appreciation to each of them many times, but always kept them confidential. They have taught me that ‘knowledge is power’, ‘people don’t plan to fail; they fail to plan’, ‘attitude determines your altitude’, and ‘don’t let one event define who you are’,” he said.
