2018’s Transformative Topics

View the 2018 schedule in detail here

Healthcare’s Turning Point

For the first time during the Annual emids Healthcare Summit, we brought together the top strategic thinkers and innovators in the healthcare industry for a pre-Summit Strategy Roundtable. While participants held a variety of job titles and roles, they all shared the responsibility of aligning their organizational vision to market dynamics to bring more value to the business.

This emids-sponsored invite-only Roundtable set the stage for the subsequent Summit panel conversations. These industry influencers discussed some of the most promising and thought-provoking topics in the healthcare industry today centered around integration and innovation.

The Digital Divide: Crossing the Consumer Chasm

Few have hit as many data and technology roadblocks and powered through more successfully than this group of innovators. Hear how they’re crossing the healthcare consumer chasm, the unique data barriers they’ve encountered along the way, and how they’re solving for the connected-device dilemma with systems and strategies to help manage the data, manage the IoT ecosystem as simply as possible, and enable enterprises to maximize the value of the data being collected.

The Intersection of Genomics and Precision Medicine 

Personalized medicine has become a game-changer for healthcare. Increasingly accessible and affordable genetic-testing tools are helping consumers identify their genetic risk of disease and allowing thousands to enroll in once-difficult-to-recruit clinical trials. But how far and how fast should we go? This panel will discuss the phenomenal promise (and pitfalls) of the technology fueled science of precision medicine.

Shifting Risk Might Not Be All That Risky 

Increase your knowledge of how the shifting of risk and rescinding of regulations has impacted new payment models. Also learn how legacy segments shift quickly to adopt new strategies, and why former models are still very much in place. New tools and technologies are quickly changing what it means to truly be paying for healthcare.

Friend or Foe? Technology and the Big Picture of Behavioral Health

The landscape and enormity of behavioral health is at the forefront of everyone’s mind today. Is the old system still working, or should we be breaking out and looking to build something new? Or, should we focus on working with patients before they even potentially become “highrisk?” This informative and educational discussion will debate the big, big picture of behavioral health and the role of technology, including how to serve this growing need through predictive modeling, data and digital solutions.

Reality Bytes: What’s Trending, What’s Possible and What People Really Want from Healthcare

We’ll take an inside look at what healthcare has learned from digital transformation in other industries, and what some of the most digitally forward healthcare organizations have learned about transformation from both a legacy and a digital-first platform. Data mobility, data liquidity and payer-provider collaboration will be central themes, in addition to how data plumbing can impact the total customer experience.

Hear the Conversation

We tackled some of our industry’s biggest challenges head-on. Hear from attendees on three key topics in digital transformation: Digital Growth, Digital Efficiency and Digital Enablement.
