Despite this acceleration of funding and interest around digital health, we felt the need this year to ask the question – is it enough?
We are living in an “App for that world” which shows no sign of dissipating anytime soon. However, in the healthcare world, will an application-based approach to driving change have a “meaningful” enough impact on access to care, quality of care, and costs – without really rethinking today’s delivery and payment system architecture and supporting technology? Is a bottom-up redesign and re-platforming of our care and payment system needed to allow all parties to succeed in a value-based model?
At this year’s DHIS we will be showcasing those companies and innovative individuals with the insights to envision the way things should be done in a value-based system and intent to develop new enterprise models that best facilitate the delivery of care and business solutions intended – enabled through technology.
Our sessions will focus on connectivity, simplicity, collaboration, and the development of novel business models that will in fact turn various healthcare sectors and sub-sectors upside down. Last year’s DHIS was applauded as a standout event in what has become a crowded digital health annual event calendar. We have no doubt you will be equally engaged and inspired by the program we are developing for this year.
