KEYNOTE ADDRESS: GETTING BEYOND THE HYPE OF DISRUPTION IN HEALTHCARE AND FOCUSING ON ACTIONABLE INNOVATION

What’s needed for healthcare technology innovation in a value- and outcomes-driven model?
There’s a ton of hype surrounding disruptive technology innovation in healthcare but nothing is truly making a dent in the healthcare industry the same way as disruptions have occurred in other industries. The slow but sure march from Fee For Service Based Care to Outcomes Driven Care has certainly started but it’s neither fast enough nor substantial enough to bend the cost curve or improve value to patients in the short term. Join award-winning and internationally recognized health tech futurist Shahid Shah, known as “The Healthcare IT Guy” across the internet, as he talks about how we can get beyond the hype by focusing on actionable innovation. Specifically, he will answer the following questions:

  • What does innovation in healthcare mean?
  • Where are the major areas in healthcare where innovation is required?

Important takeaways for the attendees of this session will include:

  • Understand PBU: Payer vs. Benefiter vs. User
  • Understand why healthcare businesses buy stuff so you can build the right thing
