As a healthcare executive, you can’t go to every conference anymore. You have to make the tough choice of the two or three conferences that you’re going to go to. From my perspective, this is always one of those three, one of the three best conferences in healthcare.

Glen TullmanExecutive Chairman, Livongo

They do an exceptional job of getting the right people together who are both at the actual intersection of delivering real care, in the real world, but also thought leading enough to think down the line. You also can't discount the opportunity to come and enjoy yourself, too.

Elliot CohenCo-Founder/Chief Product Officer, Pillpack, an Amazon company

Its rich combination of great content and atmosphere makes it a very clear jewel.

Sam SrivastavaCOO, Bright Health

I love this event. It’s a carefully curated group of individuals from lots of different parts of the healthcare system. It’s great to continue to see old friends that I’ve made over the years as well as meet some new people that are trying to do very interesting things within healthcare.

The Lineup

Reimagining Healthcare


The future is now playing. As healthcare’s leaders we are responsible for being at the forefront of change, especially during times of uncertainty. But, how do we overcome our current obstacles while still preparing for what’s ahead?

The Tipping Point of Mainstream Mental Health

Despite the proliferation of new apps, we haven’t even come close to a mental health system that serves both rising demand and societal health. When will we acknowledge mental health as a foundational part of healthcare and begin to manage the data and reimbursement with a preventative and early intervention mindset?

Dr. AI Has Seen You and Here’s the Issue

We’ve been singing about a physician shortage for years and while telehealth has tapped into enormous underutilized capacity, emerging models are leveraging the physician with the AI-driven “doctor inside.” So, do we really have a shortage of resources or will we let machines do a portion of the work AND help us prevent issues upstream?

The New Deal: Innovation Investing

With U.S. digital health companies raising billions in funding during the first six months of 2020, the thesis around digital health has never been stronger. While the pandemic has offered us a glimpse into a better healthcare system, many questions loom over the future of healthcare investments.

The Public Health (Data) in All of Us

Lack of data access left ALL of us handicapped in our ability to combat COVID-19. The need for data sharing is unlike anything we’ve experienced and cross-communication is more important than ever. As we look to our future, what public health-inspired models and platforms are not only important for the greater good, but also critical to our businesses?

Interoperability Is Coming, but Is It All That We Need?

The Interoperability rule potentially floods people with information about their health and, frankly, couldn’t have come at a better time. The pandemic may have just pushed us over the interoperability edge, so let’s decide what we really need and how to make it happen because the show of interoperability must go on.
