Digital Health Summit
Meet the Transformers in Digital Health
The ACA ushered in the era of transformation. Meet the CEOs of the companies that are not only surviving, but thriving.
As federal policy drives the industry toward value-based care and capitated payments, a few companies have embraced these changes head-on.
This panel brings together the leaders of businesses from across the care continuum, with diverse perspectives ranging from that of a provider of behavioral health services, a unique primary care model, and a provider of care collaboration solutions. While their business models differ, these companies are united by a mission to find new ways to improve outcomes and quality while reducing costs for the overall healthcare system.

The Government’s Role in Deploying Digital Health
Fact: Government plays a very important role in advancing the adoption of digital health. But like any new industry, policymakers need to get educated and up-to-speed from those working on the frontlines. And still, the process is a long and arduous one.
From the HHS, Congress, NHS, FDA and others, it’s critical the digital health industry gain the support and official backing to deploy health tech programs on a grand scale giving way to a fully integrated ecosystem.
Join the CEO of Humetrix, a digital health pioneer blazing the trail to give patients access to their health records, for a talk on where the state-of-affairs lies with pushing important legislation through. After testifying before Congress on just this matter, she continues to advocate and move this needle forward.
Healthcare Has Problems: Blockchain Has Answers
Healthcare is tasked with managing the torrent of data between dozens of insurers, thousands of providers, and millions of patients quickly and securely. Success, thus far, has been elusive. But blockchain processes -- decentralized, accessible, and cryptographically protected -- may offer the digital solutions that healthcare has been seeking.

What Will You Do With Democratized Health Data?
Connecting to an application programming interface (API) is a relatively trivial task these days. Exchanging healthcare data as part of a business workflow, however, is a completely different story. The issues: security, privacy, interoperability, modernizing infrastructure, scaling and more.
Hear case studies on how healthcare and digital health companies are flowing data through a new API platform to accelerate their business growth. Their experience may be the new benchmark, raising your expectations of what democratized health data can do for you.

Coffee Break Hosted By Vēdius
Time to schmooze, grab a snack and that much needed cup of coffee. Thank you to our Break Sponsor Vēdius.
Today’s Pharma, hospitals and physicians are integrating and deploying technology in profound and unique ways. From designing the hospital of the future TODAY to pharma delivering unprecedented preventative care, remarkable digital strategies are offering agile, efficient and effective solutions.
Philips and American Well Redefine the Hospital of the Future
The hospitals of the not-so-distant future won’t just be buildings where you go when you’re sick or injured. Rather, a network of healthcare providers will monitor you when you’re healthy and deploy services to your home when you’re not. Your doctor might be an expert physician thousands of miles away who uses vast troves of data from devices you wear to guide your treatment.
In short, the hospital and clinic won’t be at the center of your healthcare. You will be. And this shift is already underway.

What’s Driving Teva Pharmaceuticals Bold Moves into Digital Health?
Teva Pharmaceuticals is a global leader in generic medications – but it wants to become something more. The company is transforming itself into a digital innovator to compete with fast-moving tech giants like Apple and Amazon as they leap into healthcare.
That means partnering with IBM Watson Health to power better outcomes for Teva’s customers around the world. It means bundling their medications with digital products so these customers can better manage their conditions between doses. And it means planning with the wisdom of a 150-year-old pharmaceutical leader … but moving with the speed of a young startup.

The Shift to Consumer Grade Devices in Clinical Settings
The “stethoscope era” of medicine is over. As healthcare providers grapple with the skyrocketing burden of chronic diseases fueled by behavioral choices, they need information. Not just a few numbers during occasional office visits -- doctors now need to monitor patients’ real-time blood pressure, glucose, heart rate, physical activity, and sleep. So bring on the wearables!
These noninvasive, relatively inexpensive devices remotely guide doctors toward value-based care decisions, alert them to emergencies, and support conversations with patients about medication adherence and lifestyle choices. The stethoscope of tomorrow just might be a new app you learn about today!

LUNCH & LEARN: Decoding and Mobilizing Data for Value-Based Healthcare
The plight of healthcare providers today can be summed up with three words: Death By Spreadsheet. With systems generating vast amounts of data, it’s a herculean task to pull all that data together so that populations can be analyzed, segmented, and targeted appropriately. As we shift to value-based care, the need to make sense of this massive amount of valuable information and drive action takes on even greater urgency.
Join a learning session with CEO Michael Jarjour from ODH, Inc., one of the nation’s leading companies fusing the latest science and technology to transform the use of health care data from disparate sources to drive better patient care and cost management.
Those that join us for this fascinating session will then be treated to lunch courtesy of ODH—Bon Appétit!

Scientific Insights into the Future of Sleep Tech
Americans don’t get enough sleep. Our 90-mile-per-hour, work now, sleep later culture, not only leaves us cranky and desperate for a cup of caffeine in the morning; but also puts us at risk for a laundry list of health conditions. Hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and obesity have all been linked to poor sleep.
In this session, Shelly Ibach, the President and CEO of Sleep Number, pioneer in biometric sleep tracking and adjustability, will share the latest scientific discoveries that will drive future innovations delivering Americans, and the world, a better night’s sleep, and in turn, better health.
