On Tuesday, March 6 from 12:30 – 2:00 pm PST, we'll hold a panel discussion, “Leading Healthcare Transformation with Innovation, Advanced Analytics, and Technology,” which will focus on change as the new global reality, especially in healthcare where consolidation, policy changes and reimbursement instability create more uncertainty.
Join healthcare disrupters for a lively exchange of ideas around the key drivers of the transformation, what should drive innovation, and the role that advanced information/analytics and digital health should play in creating the future. Panelists include:
On Wednesday, March 7 from 12:30 – 2:00 pm PST, attendees will hear from Frans van Houten, CEO, Philips. With nearly 35 years of experience, van Houten is respected internationally as a healthcare and informatics executive with areas of expertise in mhealth, product development, integrated care models, marketing, distribution, information technology and innovation implementation. Reflecting on the healthcare innovation landscape, van Houten discusses how health informatics are being applied at the point of care to support optimized care pathways that are more precise, personalized and predictive. Also, sharing key lessons and best practice to help care providers navigate their digital transformation.
In addition, HIMSS CEO & President, Hal Wolf will sit down for a fireside chat with Paul Krugman, an American economist, Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, columnist for The New York Times, and Nobel Prize Awardee in Economic Sciences. The discussion will center around the economy and the impending global impacts on healthcare. The question at hand: “How much longer can this economic calm last? And what happens when it ends?”
Please take some time to explore these opportunities. Executives are invited collaborate to further innovation and maximize its value in a forum not found anywhere else.
