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 two Key Note speakers were specifically selected to address the multitude of issue facing digital health entrepreneurs and those payers, providers and employers that recognize the need to establish leadership positions in how healthcare will be delivered and paid for in a value-based world.
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.
