6:15-7:15 Speaker Roundtable Discussion

7:15-7:30 Networking

In today’s health landscape, an individual seeks more control of their personal and loved one’s health. Each person is gaining insights and transforming our health experiences for the next generation. This 2.0 conversation will center first around DotHealth sharing new consumer health insights based on a larger 2017 Consumer Health Online report. DotHealth is a company managing new .health domain space.

At the NC health ecosystem level, we are blessed with numerous well-known health organization brands, thriving tech hubs and attracting talent. With growing population demand, the bricks & mortar healthcare development continues to thrive in major urban regions. This leads us to a quote from Dr. Melody Goodman of NYU, mentioning a “zip code is a better predictor of your health than your genetic code.”

Numerous challenges face our own health needs, causes and businesses. You will learn more about the current and future challenges, while each of the speakers’ organizations will address answers to:

- Better understanding their current domains’ problems, data insights and technologies helping bring together more informed choices and trusted approaches.

- The market continues to evolve with market consolidation, uncertain funding, policy issues and how the organizations seek out new connective growth to reach their populations.

- As a clinician, professional or vendor, we may face setbacks on whether to buy the next shiny tech solution or seek further collaborative partners. Beyond your pilots and clients, what meaningful projects or startups do you see impacting your populations.

- Q&A featuring practical advice to facing your barriers, careers and new ventures.
