Healthcare Summit 2021

Experience the Future of Healthcare

Pandemic-spawned shifts in where people live, work, shop, learn and access care have led to some of the most obvious and unexpected of mashups of organizations, technologies and care delivery + payment models.

From startups to mega-mergers to innovative payers, providers and life sciences players, we’re fusing our industry together to make sense of the new landscape, share stories from the frontlines, predict behaviors and forge novel relationships. Together, we will identify ways to leverage technology and drive better health, wealth and well-being outcomes.

“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 the three best conferences in healthcare. “

Hybrid Isn’t Just a Solution for Cars

Post-pandemic it’s a proven solution for real-world access to care: social, emotional, mental and physical. Covid-19 revealed deep fractures in society, the inequity of the nation’s social and health safety nets, and the need for a radical transformation of community health focused on treating high-risk, high-needs patients.
