The Disruption of Healthcare Delivery

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 (7:30 AM - 10:00 AM)

Game Changing Opportunities

The U.S. healthcare system is undergoing historic reforms, forcing seismic change.  While there is sometimes internal resistance to innovation in healthcare as a mechanism to impart change, it is certain that both cost controls and quality improvements are paramount.  How do we, as an industry that drives innovation, adapt?  Disruption is the key word, and new models of disruptive healthcare delivery are apparent both inside and outside our current health system. Join us for a provocative panel discussion centering on disruptive healthcare delivery models in Washington: who’s building them, who’s using them, and who’s buying them.
