VITALS 2019: Intersections of Healthcare
Healthcare, one of today’s most debated topics, intersects with the technology, finance, public policy, social impact and retail industries. These intersections influence everything from patient experience to pharmaceutical pricing and shape how consumers interact with the healthcare system. This conference will provide education about the changes coming to the healthcare industry as a result of these dynamic connections. We would like to thank our sponsors, Amgen, DaVita, Edwards Lifesciences, PwC, Microvention, and GLG.
Emerging Applications for Big Data & AI in Health IT: Healthcare organizations are embracing the power of big data analytics and bulking up their health IT structure. This panel will examine the use of big data and artificial intelligence in novel ways to improve clinical research, population health management, patient engagement and care coordination. Our panelists will share their insights from the perspectives of biopharma, providers and innovators.
Entrepreneurship in Healthcare: Technology and innovation have always created a natural intersection between healthcare and entrepreneurship. However, the complexities of the industry can result in a difficult road. This panel will discuss some of the issues start-ups face that make the industry unique and explore why these challenges are enticing to aspiring healthcare entrepreneurs.
Social Impact in Healthcare: As healthcare advancements continue to occur at a rapid pace, misalignment between patient and provider needs, as well as the disparity in access to healthcare, remain ever-increasing challenges. This panel serves to explore the intersection between healthcare and social innovation, and how this is positively reforming the patient experience and addressing unmet needs.
Consumerism in Healthcare: Traditional consumer-oriented companies are moving into the healthcare sector, building on their existing modes of distribution. Additionally, a range of startups are creating new use cases for patient care delivery. Please join us as we discuss these developments with a panel of leaders in telemedicine, mobile health, and healthcare navigators. Topics will center on evolving use cases for patient-centered care delivery, and how consumerism is informing this sector.
Private Capital in Healthcare: From seed funding, to series A through C funding, to private equity transactions, private capital plays an ever-growing role in shaping the future of healthcare. This panel features California based executives who will provide insight into West Coast opportunities, a pulse on the current healthcare market, and an outlook of future investments in healthcare, ranging from retail health and pharmaceuticals to digital health and provider clinic acquisitions.
