12:45 pm - 1:45 pm Innovation in Disruption: Health Care 2020 - Population Health, Consumerism, and the Future of Health Care Delivery
Disruptive innovation is typically focused on finding the uncharted white space in an industry where new product and service models can create new markets. But healthcare enterprises are usually on the receiving end of that disruption and struggling to stay apace with the demand evolution. Finding white space within your business—true enterprise innovation at the operational level—can mean the difference between surviving and thriving in disruption.

8:45 am - 9:45 am Consumerism and the Evolution of Patient Demand
One of the emerging disrupters in healthcare is the increasingly empowered role of the patient to take the lead when it comes to care and treatment decisions. A new generation of informed consumers is shaping the new landscape for how healthcare services will be measured, marketed, and experienced. This represents a notable shift in healthcare purchasing behaviors, and providers are taking note. Hospitals have the added pressure of delivering high-quality services in a new environment of transparency. How are these healthcare enterprises holding up? What can their quality and safety evaluations tell us about how well they are thriving in disruption?

We continue to hear that digital is everywhere. It’s disrupting every industry and reshaping both. We continue to hear that digital is everywhere. It’s disrupting every industry and reshaping both customer expectation and experience. It’s also creating unforeseen competitors and opening new markets. But what does “digital” mean and does it mean the same for every industry, every customer, and every line of business? How can it be defined, adapted to, and integrated in ways that will drive business transformation? We will be exploring the different technologies enabling digital transformation, including SDN, mobility, IOT, security and cloud. Join us for this deep dive on digital, where we will explore the prevailing definitions for digital, how it’s accelerating innovation and reshaping business models. We’ll look at how digital transformation can be done effective at scale and how it can improve your business operations and drive better outcomes.

We are 5 years into the Affordable Care Act and are beginning to identify both early gains and long-term challenges with the implementation of key ACA initiatives, including the transition from a fee-for-service payment system toward cost-saving, outcomes-based models. Where are we after 5 years? What is the long-term projection for this migration and what will the impact be? Through this panel session, we will look at what’s working and not working with some of these ACA initiatives and how technology is supporting those regulatory goals. Join us for a facilitate discussion and look at who is doing it well and where can innovation be directed toward these goals.
