Putting Patients First: High-Tech, High-Value Healthcare

The $4 trillion healthcare industry is under intense focus and is rapidly changing, right here, right now. The global pandemic is increasing societal expectations and accelerating shifts in the way healthcare is delivered. Never has there been a better opportunity to do so much good for more people than ever before.

To address these changes, healthcare leaders are moving towards value-based models that allow for more easily accessible treatment that puts the patient right at the epicenter of care.

At the 2020 Healthcare Summit, we will hear from the world’s top executives and thought leaders who are moving beyond simply addressing patients’ medical conditions and diseases, to treat the whole person.

The Summit will highlight the latest technology and strategies that address loneliness, behavioral health, food insecurity and other social determinants of health, while integrating the latest biopharma breakthroughs, health benefits and devices that can rapidly improve patient care in 2021 and beyond.
