Techonomy Health is a one-day multidisciplinary dialogue to explore what healthcare could become in a technologized and hyper-connected age. On May 16 in New York we’ll bring together doctors, innovators, policymakers and insurgent entrepreneurs to explore how advances in technology are shaping the future of healthcare and extending it beyond the walls of doctors’ offices and hospitals into all of our lives.
We’ll tackle connected healthcare, the impact of digital technology and how care and business models are evolving rapidly. We’ll look at the impact that the cloud, artificial intelligence, analytics, the Internet of Things and the increased use of genetic data have in creating a more efficient healthcare system.
Can we ensure that new technologies lead to patient-centric healthcare? What do healthcare systems and providers need to know now? How will we manage the data explosion? What are the security and privacy risks? What’s the state of a move towards value-based healthcare, in which doctors get paid based on how healthy they keep people? Where may patient resistance emerge? How can the many players in American healthcare better cooperate? What new incentives do we need?
These are just some of the questions we’ll address, as we examine new technologies, new attitudes, and new opportunities for a healthier America.
