Collaborative Innovation in the
Digital Health Age

With market drivers such as policy changes, implementation of value-based care, and adoption of new technology, organizations have recognized significant growth opportunities in digital health.

Success in this emerging field requires developing new strategy, creating unique partnerships, reshaping existing business models, and driving a culture of innovation within complex, matrixed organizations.

Our panel will explore best practices of innovative corporations who have seized the opportunities of digital health, sharing their experience with those seeking to drive innovation and partnerships in digital health.

This unique networking event will also feature 10 growth stage and established German companies who are part of a delegation visiting New York City. These innovative organizations are looking to form relationships and partnerships with healthcare players in the New York region.
