Overview

Health Innovation Summit - building a better and stronger resiliency in the health ecosystem post pandemic

description

Much of life involves obstacles and challenges that are meant to wear everyone (government, industry, and individuals) down but yet teach us a lesson.  However, resiliency over time becomes very important and can be strengthened as we continue to find solutions and gain intelligence from lessons learned.  Today, after over a year of a pandemic, the health ecosystem, the mass vaccinations, and health care in general still continue to be a top issue for the new administration, not only in the United States but globally as well.

As we move forward, new advancing emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning; digital health; telemedicine connectivity; wearable technology; improved supply chains; expanded data exchanges; and other innovative technologies and services will continue to provide the new base of support for Resiliency in Health.  All in all, these improvements will provide more value, better outcomes, greater convenience, access, health equity, and a more simplified process at less cost and in less time.

Join ACT-IAC for their Fourth Annual Health Innovation Summit to hear more of the plans from government and industry as we transition from pandemic to the post pandemic era.

objectives

  • To hear the changes that have been made through last year's lessons learned
  • To learn about new advances in technology that were implemented and provided positive outcomes
  • To hear how government and industry are building a more resilient global healthcare ecosystem
  • To understand the new administration's healthcare strategy and focus for the future
