Health System Innovators: Build as a Last Resort with Neil Patel, Healthbox

Wednesday, March 7 | 4:00 PM-4:20 PM PT | Innovation Live Stage #9900

Traditionally most organizations have been consumers of innovative technologies in the market. However, as the role of health systems and payors change, many are building the capabilities to develop and potentially commercialize their own unique solutions. In this session Healthbox President Neil Patel will discuss key themes emerging from their work with organizations who need to decide when and how to build, buy, or partner to create successful innovation.

Innovation Mash-Ups in Healthcare

Thursday, March 8 | 2:30 PM-2:50 PM PT | Innovation Live Stage #9900

Innovative ideas are rarely new, but rather often the result of a mash-up of old ideas from distinct domains, separate organizations, and even unrelated industries. Large organizations across the healthcare landscape are combining assets in novel ways to solve long-standing challenges. In this session, Healthbox Director Matty Francis will discuss how providers can build their own mash-ups to tackle pressing challenges.
