Track 2

The Age of Genomics

View Description

Recognizing that each diagnosis is unique, innovators are venturing into how human genes can be used to identify, divert - and even erase cancers, rare diseases and unhealthy behaviors at a personal level! Learn what lies beyond the horizon of genomic discoveries in the development of medicines and clinical practices that improve health.

Track 3

Building Care Models from the Inside-Out

View Description

“If you build it, they will come” may work in baseball, but health needs to take a contrarian approach to care.

Healthy Debates

The Patient Data Debates:
Round 1: Who is Responsible for Patient Data?

View Description

Moving past ownership of patient data, let’s focus on responsibility. What are the main considerations for utilizing patient data for consumerism vs. for provider application? Should providers, patients and vendors share decision-making responsibilities? Is there a line drawn when the patient delegates responsibility to a third party? Listen to varied perspectives from different segments of the ecosystem on handling patient data.

Round 2: What is the Best Route to Get Patient Consent to Data?

Consent for using patient-specific data is required in healthcare, but how do we go about gaining patient consent? Is a “once and done forever” approach enough or should we be asking for consent every time? What do patients ultimately want? The devil is in the details and for vendors and providers the route to consent may vary.

The Data Interoperability Debates:
Round 1: Blockchain or Bust

View Description

The use cases for blockchain in health are endless, but it has yet to make a real dent in the system. Will 2020 be the year where we see a real business case for blockchain?
