Welcome to Day Two of the Digital Health Summit
Make sure to get here early! What a lineup of sessions and speakers we have here today.
Digital Health & Lifelong Tech Summits
Traditional pharma has been one of the least trusted industries in the minds of consumers. Yet, thanks to incredible advances in genomics and other “-omics” powered by cutting-edge technology, the old pharma model is evolving from a “one-size-fits-all” to much more targeted therapies and is going well-beyond the infamous pill.
Drugwear: Pharma Rises Beyond the Pill
In an age where 80% of the economy is service-based, pharma is also reinventing its model. And as new technologies are enabling untapped insights into the human body, wearables may serve as the foundation of a "beyond the pill" approach to delivering value.
This session will explore the future of personalized medicine, and how an unconventional partnership between Pharma and Wearable Tech is disrupting healthcare.

Networking break. Go ahead and work the room!
You may not agree with Vinod Khosla that 80% of doctors should be replaced by computers, yet we agree that technology has profoundly and indelibly challenged the traditional patient-physician relationship—and continues to—help patients be better informed, in-charge, and more self-reliant.
Revisiting the Revolution: How Two CIOs are Challenging the System
The requirements of the ACA are stringent and some hospital groups have had trouble keeping up. Others are fully embracing new technology capabilities to run the hospital more smoothly and efficiently for the benefit of the patients and medical care staff making the compliance with the ACA an added benefit.
These trailblazers are challenging the way information is used to respond to the complex, unpredictable and sometimes contradictory demands of a large hospital system. Come hear directly from the CIOs at Stanford and Cedars-Sinai on how they are propelling their hospitals forward into the future.

No Guts, No Glory: Tackling Healthcare Headon
Hospital readmissions is one of biggest challenges in healthcare, for the patient of course and also for the hospitals. With the new Medicare 30-day policy, new practices are dire to comply. Enter the tech innovators who are tackling this challenge head-on.
What if you could continue to see your doctor without having to physically go back to the hospital? And what if reliable (and non-intrusive) monitoring could help detect when you need help most? Now that would surely cut costs and improve outcome. Hear directly from the innovators making this vision a reality—from reducing hospital readmissions to preventing complications and re-occurrance.

HP Hosted Coffee Break
Join HP as they host a healthy snack and coffee break. This is a great opportunity to schmooze with your fellow attendees.
Tech is providing physicians and hospitals with access to new diagnostics tools, 360-view of their patients and powerful analytics to amplify their expertise and fuel a new era of medicine. Come learn what’s new in connecting doctors and patients.
When a new physician takes the hippocratic oath, she’s not likely dreaming of how she’ll set up new a new practice from the patient management systems, to the billing processes or even wait for images to get transferred from other systems. What she wants is to take care of patients!
So can technology empower physicians—in private practice and even in hospitals—to make the best use of the time they have with each patient? Come find out about the most advanced technology that makes all of this as invisible as possible so that physicians focus on why they became a physician in the first place.

The Virtual Couch: Video Telemedicine Transforms Mental Health
For those suffering from mental health issues, many barriers can come in the way of treatment, such as your ability to leave your home, the proximity of a provider who specializes in the care you need and with whom you “click”, or even the stigma associated with mental care. Thankfully, telemedicine can help break down some of those barriers and play a critical role in mental health care.
Join one of the most well-known mental health professionals in the world, Dr. Phil McGraw, for a lively discussion about the possibilities, realities and challenges of utilizing telemedicine in the treatment of mental health.

Lunch Break – Day Two
Big data analytics and machine learning have been on the forefront of transforming industries from finance and transportation to manufacturing—all of which are rapidly evolving and maturing. What if that same power could be used in health to understand, predict and advise our healthy, at the individual level?
HealthTech Talk: Personalizing Biometric Medicine
Doctors of the future will deal with massive amounts of data compared to historical medical peers. The myriad flock of biomedical devices monitoring individual health indicators, however, is not helping make sense of it all. What will it take for your doctor to get a 360⁰, salient and actionable view of your health and wellbeing by looking at your key biometrics? Join a leading Chief Medical Officer and internationally-recognized surgeon as he breaks down personalized biometric medicine with four groups of key data that will change the face of medical care.

HealthTech Talk: Decluttering the Mind-numbing Maze of Healthcare
Navigating the healthcare system in the US is not for the faint of heart. It used to be that between the insurance lingo, the medical science and our poor habits, consumers were usually not able to take charge of their own health decisions. Digital health is changing all this—and at warp speed.
Yet this new abundance of tools has brought a new problem and may be at a point that is counter productive, as it may not be easy to discover the app you need today out of the 40k+ apps available! And that’s just about finding new tools—now the integration of all these tools is another story altogether.
Thankfully there is a new breed of companies looking to make sense of all this: the Enterprise Health Benefits Platforms. Come discover how these integrated systems enable each individual to get the care they need, track their behaviors from separate apps and devices as well as facilitate more informed decisions—to simplify and empower each of us.

HealthTech Talk: The Audacity of an Algorithm
Can technology radically transform the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease? Join one of today's leading entrepreneurs and visionaries for a critical talk on how an algorithm and a digital diagnostic is helping to solve a global epidemic.
Without the convergence of high-science and tech, how can we be sure we are protecting our health for the long-term? It’s become paramount to provide scientifically-validated metrics to help us guide our daily use of health tools, and stay cognizant of how our digital life impacts our real health!
Sleep Science: Getting it Right for Consumers
We spend a third of our lives sleeping. Poor sleep or lack of sleep can lead to stress, poor concentration, depression and even a weakened immune system. Many digital health innovators are trying to address this—sleep monitors, trackers and other sensors now abound. Yet, without clearly established standards, it is difficult for the consumer to identify which metric to rely on and what to do with this data. Come hear from sleep experts how this industry is maturing and setting the bar high so we can get our healthy rest!

A Digital Detox for Your Eyes
On average we look at our mobile phones more than one hundred times a day. “Digital addiction” and “nomophobia” (the fear of no mobile) are serious new phenomena.
So what is this over-consumption of digital doing to our health? We see consequences in our posture, our anxiety levels, and especially in our vision, with the acceleration of age-related macular degeneration and rise of myopia.
What if glasses could protect your eyes from the blue light of your computer, smartphone, or even the TV? More importantly, how can we protect our children who are growing up in a obsessive digital world. Come hear all about the innovations that are here to protect your eyes from our irresistible technology. You won't want to miss this session where a lucky group of attendees will get outfitted with brand new specs to protect their precious eyes!

Afternoon Break – Day Two
Take time to introduce yourself to someone you haven't met yet.
Retail and medical have co-existed like the separation of church and state, however digital health is facilitating new alliances we’ve yet to see before. What does the future hold for retail and medical to begin a lifelong, fruitful relationship, and what are the big players doing to catapult this movement forward?
Should Retail and Medical Get Hitched?
Convenience always wins, and as the point of care is becoming more “care when I need it, where I need it” the pharmacy is becoming a key bastion of our health. Consider that the pharmacist is the most trusted healthcare provider and that these retail chains have the culture to put the “customer in the center” to deliver a more accessible care experience.
Business incentives and patient outcomes become aligned in this model where loyalty and long-term behavior change are mutually reinforced. Don’t miss this fascinating session discussing how this care delivery model can bring better health for all!
