2014 Digital Health Summer Summit
Thursday, June 19
Conference - Day 1
The increased connectivity between patients and the physician community has created options and opportunities we never dreamed possible. From sharing medical records and the connected waiting room to remote patient monitoring and telemedicine, rapid change in this field is not only impacting individuals’ health, but is also creating new space for entrepreneurs. Join Dr. Jordan Shlain, the founder of HealthLoop, entrepreneur and physician, as he shares his experiences and vision about the wide-ranging ways technology is transforming the connection between doctors and patients.
As more employers begin to see the benefits of robust corporate wellness programs, they are seeking innovative companies to help them supercharge their workforce. While the possibilities are endless with the amount of devices that can integrate into these programs, it’s no secret that device makers and platform builders want a piece of the pie. While deploying digital health products through existing wellness programs is the best way to engage a larger user base, there is still a ton of work to be done. Discover why consumer domination in the workplace is the name of the game featuring the CEO of a company leading the pack in program awareness and adoption.
While more hospitals are becoming aware of the important role that technology is playing in their future, the shift from volume to value-based reimbursement models means that healthcare innovation is taking off and taking hold. With this major shift happening, how can companies find success in partnering with healthcare providers when navigating those waters seem so complex? Discover priceless insights from those “in the know”:
- whether you are a startup looking for expertise,
- you’re looking for a pilot,
- or simply seeking a paying customer
You’ll learn how healthcare providers are innovating from the inside out, innovating from the outside in, as well as discovering key tools on how to build out your provider rolodex. Join two of the top healthcare delivery systems, UCSF and Cedars Sinai, for one of the most insightful discussions on building relationships (and deals) with leading care providers.
Thousands of new products are launched into the marketplace every year. Tackling issues like targeting the “right” customers or developing effective distribution and sales strategies are integral to the success of your product. These mistakes can reduce potential profits and increase the development timeline, ultimately resulting in a less than stellar market impact. There is no question that the success of a new product launch can determine the positioning of a company over the coming years.
Discover how a leading digital health CEO teamed up with one of the world’s top medical institutions to launch a revolutionary new product. Hear from both sides as they dive into the ingredients and challenges of strategizing a successful launch including:
Matching Product Capabilities to Market Needs
Developing Clear Positioning and Messaging
Setting Clear Launch Goals
Applying the Power of Leverage
Timing the Launch to Maximize Sales
This is where the pavement hits the road. You’re either going to market, preparing to go to market, in clinical trials or creating new channel opportunities. You might be trying to break into the hospitals or integrate your fitness device with a workspace wellness solution. Strategy is essential and learning from those who are “in the know” is a must. These next sessions take deep dives into strategic planning and strategic execution!
Recharge your engines with a caffeine boost or a healthy snack. Then take time to meet with exhibitors as they showcase innovative technologies that are ushering digital health forward.

Watson will process and learn what’s most successful in helping consumers reach health goals, and refine recommendations accordingly.
Join us for this rare opportunity to gain insight into how Welltok and IBM Watson came to work together as well as their plans to execute on this powerful partnership.
Finding the right partnership to complement your company’s core skill set without comprising your core beliefs is a delicate dance. The more we can learn about success within the digital health space, the more crucial leveraging partnerships becomes. Join us for a triple feature—a deep dive where we’ll spotlight three model case studies inviting each side of the partnership to share their insights: the genesis of the partnership, complications around doing the deal, and how both sides of the partnership are servicing the deal for real success. We explore how good partners find their common ground.
