Innovating, Accelerating and Funding: The Future of Digital Health

Round Table Discussion

April 15, 2019 | 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. CDT

Healthcare’s ‘innovation index’ is off the charts. The variety and velocity of digital and telehealth solutions sweeping across the healthcare landscape is unprecedented as they seek to reduce health expenditures, improve access to care, manage chronic conditions, and extend life expectancy. Both startups and established companies alike are seeking to leverage technology to empower consumers. Investment surged in 2018, as innovators are breaking down barriers with wearables, blockchain, artificial intelligence/AI, ‘Big Data’, Internet of Things, augmented and virtual reality, voice technology, and precision medicine. This session will bring together leaders offering three distinct perspectives looking at digital and telehealth: AVIA, leading a network of health systems working together to innovate and transform markets; 7wire, an early stage healthcare venture fund, and; ARDA Health, an AI-based virtual health coaching fitness platform tied to wearables.
