Future of Healthcare

← Back to Schedule

The Future of Healthcare panel will cover major innovation trends in healthcare relevant to clinicians, healthcare organizations, consumers of healthcare, and investors. Covid-19 rapidly accelerated trends that had been building in the industry for the prior two decades. This panel will cover telemedicine, virtual care, and the digitization of healthcare services; a trend most impacted by Covid-19.

2021 also brought a new administration to healthcare, and, with it, comes health policy innovations and new agendas. Consequently, this panel will cover expected health policies in the new administration. Finally, there has been a great deal of scientific advancement in the world of genomics and medical devices. The panel will also discuss trends in medical technology that will dominate the next 10 years.
