A Doctor, a Patient and an Entrepreneur Walk Into a Bar

With smarter entrepreneurs, ubiquitous computing, growing budgets, and massive interest in digital health, how is it that the adoption of healthcare innovation seems to be moving at such a slow to moderate pace? Is the healthcare system getting in it’s own way? Are there cultural, public policy or legal reasons why we aren’t moving at warp speed?

Enter the doctor, the patient, the entrepreneur and the VC. Grab yourself a whiskey and pull up a chair for the provocative and quite candid discussion that will address the big question we all want see get answered: What will it take to accelerate the adoption of healthcare innovation?

Part One: Growth in Innovation

There is no sure bet when it comes to building a digital health company. As important as raising money is, being able to execute once the funds are received is the life or death of your company.  How do companies that are started in incubators move on and become successful? When laying out your company strategic plan, how are you incorporating critical validation into ongoing product development? In this series of sessions we will learn from the funders and companies who have executed successfully and learn the essentials for laying the foundation for a successful future.

10:50am-11:35am
Day Two

Our Digital Health Playground enables all attendees to interact directly with the latest innovations in healthcare technology. Getting valuable input of the user is always important, and we have created this experience to have both sides be able to reap the rewards of exchanging valuable feedback and information.

Enjoy getting your hands on some of the most cutting-edge technologies while meeting the next generation of stellar innovators.

Day Two

DEBATE: What Does it Take to Avoid the Funding Valley of Death?

With the abundance of health tech accelerators and seed funders pushing out a wide array of digital health companies, there is a significant time gap between “graduation” and receiving institutional funding.

Many of these digital health companies entering the business ecosystem after initial funding and “acceleration” find themselves without the financial backing and entrepreneurial guidance they need to escalate to the traction levels needed for the “big bucks.”

Join two of the most prolific corporate investors as they debate two enterprising early-stage funders as they hash out how these parties can come together to help companies through the chasm and not wind up in the valley of death.

Digital Health Grows Up

It is now a solidly recognized field drawing increasing amounts of attention, talent and funding from multiple sectors. Despite the remarkable growth spurt, the field of Digital Health is still in need of maturing in key areas such as demonstrating effectiveness, tackling privacy, security and regulatory challenges and embracing the complexities of fully incorporating new technologies into healthcare delivery.

Join us for a triple feature—an overview of “ transformative partnerships” and case studies where each side of the partnership will share their insights: the genesis of the partnership, complications around doing the deal, and how both sides of the partnership are managing the deal for prolonged success. We explore how good partners find their common ground.

LUNCH & FEATURED SESSION: Project Catalyst–Taking Charge of Critical Consumer Feedback

Our featured luncheon session brings together some of the most notable healthcare stakeholders to introduce a unique research initiative, Project Catalyst, that focuses on getting products into the hands and homes of the 50+ consumer to get tangible feedback. The first of the nine projects centers around sleep and activity trackers, where the usability of the device, the barriers the consumer faces and the effectiveness of the product will be assessed. The next of the nine total projects they plan to focus on include medication management, vital signs monitoring, aging with vitality and physical fitness.

The benefit of this feedback will be integral for the device manufacturers, and yet the value of the results will go much further. Discover why Pfizer, UnitedHealthcare, MedStar and AARP have joined forces to get critical feedback from these consumers and more importantly, why this data is meaningful to each of these key stakeholders.

What’s Your Technology Worth?

The entrepreneur’s world of developing digital health technologies is morphing rapidly and opportunities are abundant--a world in demand of quality, cost-effective healthcare solutions combined with technologies that are mostly “unfriendly” to anyone. It’s fertile ground for prosperity!

While it’s critical that innovators focus on identifying user needs, leveraging user’s interaction with the technology is essential to a company’s long-term success. And all this works in synergy with understanding the market drivers propelling the healthcare tech industry forward.

This session brings together two leading digital health experts for an important conversation to help companies determine their strategic path. Filled with invaluable insights and “insiders” candid views, the discussion will focus on how companies can harness meaningful and influential technology to create a sizable impact in the market while improving healthcare delivery.

Disentangling the Gordian Knot: Privacy and Compliance

In digital health, a company’s ability to protect users’ personal health information is paramount to their success. It is, without a doubt, one of the most difficult areas in the industry for companies to manage. And, with privacy laws changing on almost a weekly basis, most companies are struggling to keep up while many find themselves behind the eight-ball when trying to stay current.

This session will present not only the MOST current changes to privacy and data security, but will address many questions companies are dealing with on a daily basis:

  • What is your privacy and compliance plan and how up-to-date are you?
  • While you might clearly understand the need for security and privacy, do you have the technical chops to execute?
  • How can you manage your resources better to protect your long-term investment and still make privacy and security a “manageable and containable” top priority?
  • What is currently working and where can we go from here?

Dealmaking, Piloting and Scaling: Do You Have What it Takes?

Hospitals have had to undergo significant changes in model-ship these past years. They’ve shifted from volume-based care to value-based care. And, with numerous legacy systems already in place, it makes managing this change extremely challenging.

Many healthcare systems have actively reached out to external sources to help them move in the direction of providing better care with lower costs. But digital health entrepreneurs wanting to sell into the system get lost in endless bureaucracy and “pilotitis.”

This session brings together the two most pivotal players to share their strategic insights on how to sell, pilot and scale successfully within the healthcare system: 1) the hospital CIO and 2) the digital health CEO with a phenomenal track record.  They’ll look into answering the myriad of questions companies have when it comes to working successfully with healthcare systems including:

  1. What are healthcare systems looking for when they evaluate new technology systems?
  2. Are all hospitals different or are there unified approaches entrepreneurs can take when working with these groups?
  3. Does your team have the technical chops to execute what they need?
  4. And, do you have a product that hospitals can actually implement to scale?

The Partnering Doctrine

Partner, build or buy sounds like a game of business-roulette, but it’s a dilemma that many senior leaders face with technology these days. With everything moving at silicon speed, what factors do you need to consider to make the right decision for your business, while still keeping a competitive edge? Having been on both sides of the coin, Brian Garcia, Welltok’s CTO and Aetna’s (Healthagen) former CTO, will share his experience on when to pull the trigger on partnering versus building or buying a technology solution.
