    Panel: The changing dynamics on the frontline of digital health

    The democratization of healthcare has shifted the balance of power and put the patient in the driver’s seat. Empowering the patient to take a more proactive role and meaningful control of their diagnosis and treatment is at the heart of digital health and care delivery. Providers are under increasing pressure to demonstrate value, contain costs and deliver customized solutions. This discussion will focus on frontline collaboration and how the multiple goals can be aligned between patients and providers to optimize digital engagement and realize the potential of technology to increase efficiencies and improve health outcomes.

    • How are data and technology impacting healthcare practices and the interface between patient and physician?
    • What do consumers and physicians need in terms of connectivity?
    • Integrating technology into everyday lives.  Solutions to engage the patient and facilitate self-managed care
    • How can digital technologies be made accessible for everyone, irrespective of age, skills and experience?

    Spotlight on security: Combatting cyber crime

    Privacy and safety concerns represent a major barrier to the progress of digital health. Consumers want to be assured that the storing and transfer of growing amounts of data can be done in a  secure way.  However, protecting personal information is challenging, largely due to the diversity of applications, systems and devices. With cyber threats on the increase and cyber criminals becoming more sophisticated, there is a pressing need for manufacturers and hospitals to work together to manage the threats and reduce the information security risk.  This session will debate:

    • Striking a balance between safeguarding personal information and promoting the development of innovative technologies  
    • What new measures are providers and regulators taking to prevent, detect and mitigate cyber attacks?
    • What are the responsibilities of the manufacturers in addressing patient safety risks and how are they putting the appropriate mitigations in place?
  • 12:00pm
    Investment Panel: Tapping new opportunities

    2017 is predicted to be a record year for digital health funding and the global market is expected to double within the next three years, exceeding $200 billion by 2020. At the same time, the investor mix is changing as the digital health landscape evolves and matures and new players and novel partnerships are emerging into a funding space traditionally dominated by venture capitalists.  Corporate and strategic investors, such as healthcare systems, are increasing their reach in tech-enabled health.  Seed and early stage deals have been the name of the game for many investors, but is the tide now turning towards longer-term financing?

    • Which parts of the health value chain are attracting the greatest investment interest?  What will it take to attract interest in later stage investment?
    • M&A trends and outlook
    • How are investment bankers viewing the opportunities?
    • What is the public market appetite for digital health looking like?  How robust is the IPO pipeline?

    • Integrating start-ups into healthcare systems
