Who should attend:  Anyone interested in learning about issues and opportunities for new business and entrepreneurial ventures, as well as how existing businesses in all areas of healthcare and healthcare technology need to think about adapting, in light of changes in the healthcare market landscape including the Affordable Care Act (ACA), rapid expansion of ACOs, advances in enabling technologies, and the evolution to value-based economics in delivery and payment of healthcare.

Program description: Lively panel discussion, including viewpoints from industry experts with experience and perspectives from service delivery, ACOs, medical devices, pharma, venture, healthcare IT, infrastructure, and mHealth. Major changes in how healthcare is delivered and paid-for, as well as advances in enabling technologies, affect all areas of healthcare and healthcare technology. They also give rise to substantial opportunities to create solutions, build new entrepreneurial ventures, adapt existing businesses, and grow both old and new companies. This involves not only traditional domains in healthcare including service delivery and medical devices and other healthcare technologies, but new and emerging areas such as sophisticated service models, consumer facing businesses, cutting-edge technology enabled infrastructure, and mHealth, which has attracted an increasing share of venture capital investment.

How technology and services are evaluated, developed, and marketed requires new understanding of elements including risk, value, and measurement of outcomes.  In the evolving environment, entrepreneurial opportunities will expand to include markets including providers and provider groups, institutions, payors, employers, governments, and patients/consumers. Our expert panel will provide perspective on the market, issues to consider, and opportunities for entrepreneurs and those involved in corporate development going forward into the new healthcare landscape of ACOs and value-based economics.

Subjects addressed will include:

  • Overview of new landscape including ACOs
  • Market needs arising from clinical integration
  • Technology evolution leading to and creating new opportunities
  • New markets including consumer-facing opportunities
  • What should be considered by existing businesses in light of this evolving landscape
  • Issues to be considered by investors and entrepreneurs
