Event description

Description

About the event:

Join us in learning how the patient experience is being revolutionized through innovation.

The convergence of new technologies, value-based payments, and shifting consumer preferences are driving healthcare providers and payers to embrace new strategies for engaging and caring for patients. From on-demand services, digital diagnostics, and real-time monitoring, health industry leaders are successfully leveraging startups to create novel health experiences that deliver higher quality care at lower cost.

  • How might corporations identify the most important priorities for innovation?

  • How might innovators embrace the possibilities of technology while balancing the needs and expectations of patients?

  • What best practices are industry leaders embracing for evaluating and translating new ideas into action?

  • How are innovators navigating healthcare’s unique cultural, regulatory, and stakeholder landscape?

The event is co-hosted by Plug and Play’s Insurtech and Health verticals, and is divided into three content blocks, including On-demand Health, Workflow Automation, and Managing Health Data, each with a panel discussion and startup presentations related to the topic.

About the content blocks:

On-Demand Health

Millennials and Generation Z are accessing healthcare based on convenience and flexibility. Contrary to baby boomers and Gen X, 45% of Millennials and Gen Z claim they don’t have a primary care physician. Rather, the younger generation is opting for on-demand health experiences, including walk-in clinics, mobile apps, and telemedicine. For payers, employers, and policy-makers, shifting consumer behaviors present unique challenges and opportunities. Where might on-demand solutions generate the most value? What landmines should corporations and startups be aware of?


Workflow Automation

Automation is increasingly top of mind as large organizations strive to improve efficiency and customer experience. How might workflow automation and robotic process automation (RPA) empower patients, create efficiencies, and streamline the patient journey? When is the human element necessary? Innovative automation startups will share their solutions.

Managing Health Data

Enabling the seamless flow of information between payers, providers, patients, and policy-makers is possibly the greatest opportunity for value creation across the healthcare industry. Learn how leading innovators are forging coalitions and bridging the technical, organizational, and regulatory gaps for making real-time precision medicine a reality.
