Ascension Health - Connected Health Summit keynote

Population Health Management: Tracking Technology’s Impact—Discussion Panel - Salon AB, 4th Fl.

As the healthcare industry shifts to preventive care, traditional disease management companies are expanding their service scope and embracing technology to meet their clients’ interests. Population health management emphasizes the continuum of preventive care as consumers transition from one life stage to another, with solutions such as virtual care and digital coaching employed to reduce costs while improving care engagement and communication. Near the end of 2013, over 25% of U.S. consumers had used some type of online healthcare communications. This panel examines the best practices of population health management in the digital age and how technology can reshape consumers’ experience with population health management services.

Path to Quality of Care: Leveraging Technology for ACOs—Discussion Panel - Salon AB, 4th Fl.

As the financial model for healthcare shifts to paying for performance/value, the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) will secure a larger role as the provider type to deliver value-based care. ACOs are built on a collaborative care approach, and investment in technology will facilitate better patient-doctor communications and transform consumer care experience. Parks Associates estimates PCMH- or ACO-recognized practices will manage nearly 40 million U.S. patients by 2015, doubling the number from 2014. This panel looks at the challenges and opportunities that ACOs face in delivering patient-centered care and the best practices to proactively engage patients.

Independent Living: Engaging the Elderly and Caregivers—Discussion Panel - Salon AB, 4th Fl.

The population in the U.S. and many other developed markets is aging rapidly, with the care burden on the family increasing. Over 21 million U.S. broadband households currently either care for a family member with a chronic health condition or anticipate doing so in the near future. Technologies and care services designed to help older consumers live safely and independently in their homes, maintain a healthy lifestyle, manage chronic health conditions, and improve the overall quality of life will find a huge potential market, but current approaches have yet to crack open this market. In the U.S., the total number of independent living service subscribers will exceed 2.5 million in 2014, still a relatively low adoption compared to the much bigger addressable market. This panel discusses current challenges and highlights specific technologies, services, and strategies to better serve this market.

The Role of Connected Devices in Digital Health—Discussion Panel - Salon AB, 4th Fl.

Nearly 60% of U.S. broadband households own some kind of personal health and wellness device, such as a digital weight scale or glucometer, and new designs and form factors, such as smart watches, have generated considerable consumer interest. However, the demand for these devices will be unsustainable if the technology fails to engage consumers or influence their behaviors, which would undermine their financial or healthcare incentives. This panel probes the design and use cases that drive consumer usage and how device manufacturers can leverage partnerships to bring consistent health benefits to consumers.

Incentivizing Behavioral Changes: The Impact of Apps and Big Data—Discussion Panel - Salon AB, 4th Fl.

Parks Associates research finds over 50% of U.S. broadband households report having at least one chronic condition, predominantly obesity or high cholesterol. Digitization and connectivity in the healthcare industry bring fundamental changes to care practices for these conditions. Patients have multiple digital means to access health information, self-evaluate, and communicate with care providers. Care providers have far more convenient options to engage patients and can better understand consumer needs and motivations through big data analytics. This panel examines the roles of apps and big data for both end users and businesses and sheds light on future growth opportunities.

Optum - Connected Health Summit keynote

How can we help consumers identify and reduce health-related risks and gaps in care that can adversely affect the quality of their lives? The best programs designed to do this are grounded in theory and based upon goals that individual consumers want to achieve. These goals might include improvements in functional status or life satisfaction, expressed via examples such as “I want to spend more time with my family and less time in the hospital.” How can we help consumers improve their chances of success in a digital world? Dr. Ozminkowski addresses this and related questions during this keynote session.

Healthcare Purchasing Decisions: The Power of the Informed Consumer—Discussion Panel - Salon AB, 4th Fl.

Consumer-centric healthcare represents a radical change in the way the U.S. healthcare industry operates. For many health industry players, consumer choice, pricing transparency, and patient feedback have been irrelevant to business operations—until now. Parks Associates research shows that providers must demonstrate to consumers that they offer high-quality care that is also responsive, convenient, and cost-effective. In this panel, speakers discuss the ways in which pricing transparency and patient reviews will change their business operations and strategies. They also examine strategies and opportunities for industry players to engage the new population of informed consumers.
