Access to new technology, information and breakthroughs are transforming healthcare as technology and new models are rapidly changing the way consumers manage their health. The Summit will serve as a platform for strategic engagement across sectors, highlighting the relationships among technology, healthcare and public policy.
The health applications of technology are advancing and, at the same time, the era of consumer-driven care is emerging. These coinciding forces are moving the dial in healthcare—highlighting the need for direct-to-consumer healthcare, personalized medicine, and innovative research on health and the continuous changes to value based models and how innovation alongside these innovation models can impact the future of healthcare. This new era of consumer-driven care is ripe for public-private partnerships that acknowledge the future of health is not in the distant future—it’s happening now.
We live in an age of constructive disruption. Integrated offerings that bundle care and payment are replacing classic payment-focused approaches such as Fee For Service. This allows for disruption in healthcare. Fixing the healthcare system requires simultaneous pursuit of four aims (commonly referred to as the Quadruple Aim): enhancing the experience of care, bettering the health of populations, reducing per capita costs of healthcare and improving the work life of health care providers, including clinicians and staff.
