Investing in The Future of Healthcare Delivery

What are the megatrends that are shaping our healthcare system’s evolution, and will shape the next generation of healthcare delivery?

Twenty years ago, the vast majority of healthcare delivery came through traditional channels such as community hospitals and physician’s offices. Since then, technological advances have enabled new ways of accessing care and made data management as valuable to health systems as medical management. Enormous reimbursement pressures have forced traditional providers to examine their business models, leading to M&A and new risk-sharing models. An aging population, new and more expensive therapies, and other drivers are spurring a demand for more efficiencies. These forces are encouraging new partnerships and associations, driving M&A and providing opportunities—and challenges—for investors and entrepreneurs.

This panel will address:

• Where do the leading healthcare investors see opportunities to address some of the most critical structural and strategic problems?
• What does this transformation mean for vendors, providers, and investors, patients?
• How are hospitals using AI and other tools to achieve operational and financial efficiency?
• Can these deliver on the Triple Aim (better cost, quality, and overall population health)?
