Why Should You Attend:

With Amazon and other big tech companies moving into healthcare, what are the crucial issues that should be considered? To what extent will they impact the unwieldy U.S. healthcare industry? What about their own financial success? Certainly, their intervention in the healthcare industry will be eventually be graded by their ability to have a significant impact on healthcare pricing. Of the other important issues that healthcare disruptors must address: Can they improve what many perceive as the biggest fundamental challenges for healthcare such as lifestyle behaviors, and socio-economic conditions and, will they support or deflect from a market-driven healthcare model?

Marked by restrictive spending, incompetence, burdensome regulation and increasing difficulties among practically all industry stakeholders, America’s healthcare system has ultimately approached a tipping point. The healthcare industry is facing tentative intrusions by market forces who have disrupted other service industries, from travel to retail to mobile phones. Big tech companies are now creating some innovative healthcare products by using their competitive advantages in data analytics, consumer relationships, artificial intelligence and more. Given its joint venture with Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan Chase, Amazon is the most high-profile supposed disruptor known to develop an innovative way to approach healthcare insurance directed at decreasing health care costs and enhancing outcomes and focusing on the combined group's one or so million employees. As its share, Apple has enabled an iPhone that allows users in many health systems immediate access to their own medical record. This effort combines Apple's ongoing heart study with Stanford, testing if wearables can detect serious heart conditions. Two subsidiaries Calico and Verity Life Sciences are formed by Google's parent company, Alphabet particularly to focus on healthcare. As Calico is focusing on the human life span, Verity's attempts are in developing new technology to treat diseases and manage population health. In the meanwhile, some principal healthcare players have begun to find out nonconventional partners to face the ever-increasing healthcare costs. The most recent one that is grabbing the attention is the merger of CVS Health and Aetna to allow more cost-effective and convenient access to care and services.
