    Conference Agenda 03

    experiMental: Tools to Help People in Mental and Behavioral Health

    Individuals with mental and behavioral health disorders are a severely underserved, and often overlooked, community in healthcare. By utilizing technology to increase the awareness of mental health issues and stimulate innovation, more individuals can gain access to life-changing resources to better manage their mental health. Innovative technologies will also help providers more effectively engage and serve their mental health patients.

    Next Generation Engagement

    Empowering each of us through information, technologies, devices, support systems, and mobile solutions are a great way to initiate the process of behavioral change. True engagement and behavior change require continuously available, real-time, personalized and targeted nudging that is distinctive and meaningful to that person. The right tools and technologies for the right person at the right time can help create a culture of health and optimize care.

    Healthy Aging and Resilience

    Health is a skill whose excellence is acquired over time with appropriate help, guidance, and oversight. Technology allows us to monitor health conditions and promote and sustain health in the home, clinic, and workplace to add years to our lives and life to our years.

    Day 1 Schedule 04
    The New Aging Landscape

    Thought leadership in Healthy Aging

    General Session
    Cross-Industry Approaches to Digital Health

    Companies outside of the traditional healthcare industry have the potential to drive innovation and overcome some of healthcare’s greatest challenges. These companies provide an outside perspective that can drive productivity and foster new collaborations in the healthcare system. This session will explore the questions “how are other companies moving their technology and services into the healthcare sector?” and “what incentivizes are driving them to do so?”

    General Session
    Moving Beyond Illness and Disease to a Culture of Health

    Engagement must move beyond medication adherence. We can do more to motivate and empower the person to achieve improved outcomes. This session will explore insights from such diverse ecosystems as AI, animation, behavior economics, smart clothing, robots, and health technology to bend the sickness and cost curves while broadening the scope of engagement.

    Positioning For Commercial S uccess – From “So-What” to Breakthrough

    Go-to-market (GTM) commercialization for digital health solutions is challenging. Only 5% of all launches make it. Markets are overcrowded, sales cycles are long, customer adoption requires change and business cases are hard to make. Healthcare entrepreneurs need product-market fit and evidence. How do you design for commercialization success? We’ll hear from our panel as they share exceptional stories on how early stage healthcare companies with different business models found their path to success (e.g., making compelling business cases, differentiating in crowded spaces, acting on insights from customer validation and gaining market acceptance).

    Track Panel Session
    Creating Actionable information for healthcare professionals and patients to enhance outcomes

    This session will explore evidence-based tools approach and experience to explore a wide range of behavioral health issues shared by thought leaders across a wide spectrum of disciplines.

    Track Panel Session
    Medical Home to Medical Neighborhoods to Smart City

    The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a model or philosophy of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety, that aims to deliver patients the right care, at the right time, in the most appropriate setting. The success of a PCMH not only depends on the ability to track the care patients receive across the various components of the medical home using care coordinators and technology, but also on effective patient engagement and education. How effective has PCMH been so far in enhancing care coordination and patient engagement and where it’s headed will be the focus of this session.

    Track Panel Session
    Digital Health for Complex Populations

    One of the fastest growing trends in health care is the development of digital tools to help individuals and providers manage their care. To date, however, most of these innovations have only been aimed at relatively healthy, middle- to upper-middle class populations. Many technologies do not address the diverse challenges faced by socially and economically complex populations within the healthcare system. This session will focus on how health care delivery systems, managed care plans, and other organizations are leveraging technology to better manage the healthcare needs of complex populations, as well as the financial and economic incentives for driving innovation in this area.

    Day 2 Schedule 05
    Next Generation Engagement

    This panel will move beyond narrow approaches to engagement that more often than not focus almost exclusively on medication adherence to the exclusion of broader opportunities for engagement.

    Track Panel Session
    Tools, Talent, and Technique to Improve Behavioral Health

    This session will explore a wide range of behavioral health including opioid, PTSD, anxiety, and other disorders. A wide range of technologies to help the caregiver and patient will be highlighted.
