throwback thursday | health care innovation summit 2016

the health insurance shake up:

It’s Throwback Thursday! As a valuable HCI 2015 attendee, we would like to extend a special opportunity to register at last year’s rate for this year’s Health Care Innovation Summit on Thursday, September 15th at Paul Berg Hall. This year, Medicine X brings patients and payers together to explore these issues and identify opportunities for patients, entrepreneurs and the health care industry. Take advantage of this exclusive limited time offer, which will expire Friday, August 5th at 5PM PST!

preliminary program highlights

  • Spark innovation  – The only summit to bring together payers, patients, and providers on the same stage. That’s the only way to innovate.
  • Uncover new revenue streams – Find out the unmet needs and opportunities in the insurance industry from payers themselves.
  • Understand shifts in the insurance industry – From ACA to value-based care, it is important now more than ever for providers to understand how to navigate the new health insurance ecosystem and succeed regardless of which reimbursement model dominates.
  • Learn why you need to get involved in digital health insurance – In the last year, over $2 billion was invested into digital health insurance startups by venture capitalists. Find out the value they see in new insurance models for transforming health care.

Why health insurance incumbents should watch out. Payers need to change to stay relevant.

highlights from last year's summit

ePatient Delegates

Too often in health care, we focus resources on solving problems that don’t matter most to the end users of health care. At Medicine X, we believe in Everyone Included™ and the value patients can add to discussions about the future of health care. These ePatient delegates represent patient experts in their own conditions and their experience of the health care industry. They have been selected to speak at the Health Care Innovation Summit to share their expertise about how payers might best collaborate and partner with patients, providers, technologists, and researchers to drive innovation.
