Wegmans beats out all other pharmacies in the 2015 J.D. Power consumer satisfaction pharmacy survey. What, a grocery store? Yep. Read Health Populi to understand that services and retail experiences are as important (at least) as picking up pills.   http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/25/people-really-like-pharmacies-for-health-care-services/

Americans like physicians, food and banks. Pharma? Not so much. My take on the August 2015 Kaiser Family Foundation Health Tracking Poll. http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/20/people-like-physicians-food-and-banks-pharma-not-much/

How will value impact the pharma business? My take on KPMG's new report aptly titled, "Change in pharma? Not optional."  http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/13/how-value-will-impact-the-business-of-pharma/

Getting health-insured improves household "pocketbook economics," Kaiser Family Foundation found in their survey of newly insured Californians. I write about it today in Health Populi, hearkening back to the first HP post in September 2007 on health care costs in the era when gas cost an "arm, a leg, or your first born."  http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/07/pocketbook-health-economics-in-one-chart/

Consumer demand for wearable tech has precipitously declined in the past few months, Argus Insights analysts soberly tell us. What might happen in the run-up to holiday shopping 2015? Consumer Electronics Association sees this as a bullish segment. Let's reconcile this gap...   http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/31/the-rise-and-fall-of-wearables/

U.S. consumers shopping for health insurance look for coverage and price. Brand? Not so much. Read my take on Valence Health's report into Americans' approach to healthcare shopping. http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/26/coverage-and-price-before-brand-for-health-plan-shoppers/

Walking the span of Michigan Avenue from east end to the the lakefront, I see health everywhere -- from Garmin and Nike and Under Armour to AT&T's smart home showcase and Eataly. Read my tour of health, wearables and the IoT on Michigan Avenue in Chicago in today's Health Populi blog -- http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/21/health-wearables-and-the-iot-in-the-windy-city

Health consumers are looking for high-levels of service from the health care system -- whether we're a "high end" high priced health care consumer or in search of value. Either way...we want authentic retail-style service form health care. More retail shopping is about the experience versus the "stuff" these days...my take on PwC's latest study into the evolving health care consumer. http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/19/health-consumers-in-search-of-authentic-consumer-experiences/

Yelp is joining with ProPublica to enhance its consumer healthcare reviews through the journalism portal's massive database on Medicare and Medical quality, along with its qualitative research. Here's my take in Health Populi, on growing transparency in health care for consumer decision making...  http://healthpopuli.com/2015/08/06/yelp-for-health-grows-with-propublica/
