Why have billions been invested in revolutionizing employer health benefits? Join us at the Health Care Innovation Summit for a full-day event exploring how technology and patient voices can guide the future of this emerging industry. This is a unique event bringing together benefits managers, entrepreneurs, patients, health insurance brokers, and health system executives.

At the heart of Medicine X, is Everyone Included™, our framework based on principles of mutual respect and inclusivity.

It is the culmination of six years of co-creation with patients, caregivers, providers, technologists, and researchers at Stanford Medicine X that has resulted in a series of design and leadership principles intended to bring diverse groups of people together on equal footing to collaborate and co-create the future of health care.

Let’s rethink employee health benefits to create better outcomes.

Questions we’ll explore….

  • What are some of the best health care delivery models developed by HR leaders?
  • How can self-insured employers create connected care models that deliver patient-centered outcomes?
  • How can employers partner with health care systems?
  • How can HR leaders develop a better critical eye for navigating the health care system?

Patients: who are participating in self-insured employer programs with real-world input on the patient experience.

HR Leaders: who are building self-insured employer benefits programs, and/or have an Employee Wellness Programs.

Health Care Benefits Managers: who want to share best practices, and seeking to learn about innovative care delivery models.
