Event Details

Challenges and Opportunities for Innovators

Chicago Health Tech and Health 2.0 is hosting our Spring Health 2.0 Local conference focused on identifying gaps and opportunities for innovators, some of them created by the Affordable Care Act's new requirements for providers and insurers, and the dearth of existing solutions in the market place to meet many of those new needs.

Why attend?

We're highlighting areas in healthcare that badly need solutions, and we're going to also provide an understanding of relevant business models so you can create a sustainable business:

  • A dynamic keynote explaining how the Affordable Care Act has affected public health locally
  • A quick and dirty breakdown of the Affordable Care Act
  • Panels on the consumerization of healthcare, explanations of the new payment models driving change, innovation opportunities, pressures experienced by consumers in this new world and brave entrepreneurs detailing their solutions
  • Weekend designathon & hackathon; design, visualize, and build solutions!
  • And of course, our famous "Mentor Breakfast" session
Yep, there'll be networking breaks, startup roundups, and of course, we'll feed you too.

Detailed agenda at our Conference site

Session Highlights

  • Demystifiying the Affordable Care Act – What does it mean for providers, payers and consumers?
  • Innovation Opportunities: What problems in our healthcare communication, care delivery and surveillance infrastructure need solutions? And what about 2 years from now? 5 years?
  • Business Model Opportunities: How does money flow in the healthcare ecosystem? How are the streams changing? Who are the actual customers for new solutions, if they aren't the consumers? What are their motivations?
  • Actual Solutions: A rapid-fire showcase of actual solutions from startups, profitable companies and organizations
  • Designathon & Hackathon included in your registration: Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, solve real problems with teams, get a "safe" entrepreneurial experience and win a prize!

REFUND POLICY FOR the Health 2.0 Chicago Conference

If you registered for the conference, and can't attend, let us know by replying to your registration email BEFORE 1159pm Tuesday May 13th and we'll give you a full refund.

We can't give you a refund after that time (b/c of manpower constraints, we're just 4 unsalaried volunteers, and we have to make sure we're paying for fixed cost items like food and coffee that were determined based on your registration commitment), but you can give your ticket to anyone else: just tell that person to come to the conference and check in with your name. 

Contact us at conference@chicagohealthtech.org if you have questions.
