Stemming unsustainable rises in healthcare costs requires breaking boundaries among the traditional players and rethinking how we pay for care at the population level. However, communicating this need to individual patients and engaging them in solutions is challenging. How can individual behaviors affect health outcomes? Where is the value in cutting costs and redrawing lines if we lose sight of the individual? How can healthcare remain personal when it is measured at the population level? In this panel, influential leaders will discuss how their companies are navigating the transition to value based care while maintaining their focus on what matters: the patient.

There is a growing understanding that health care extends beyond the hospital walls, but the question of “what to do next” is often complicated for providers, patients, and families. Providers are incentivized to connect patients to the right care in order to contain costs, improve quality, and reduce preventable readmissions. Families want to make decisions that are aligned with their loved ones' needs, values, and goals. In this panel, we will hear from a range of stakeholders to understand how they are working together in new and exciting ways to better manage the patient journey across the care continuum.

The days of one-size-fits-all healthcare are almost over. New therapies are increasingly “personalized”, to get the right treatment to the right patient at the right dose. This shift will require unprecedented collaboration between industry players, from biotech/pharma to diagnostics to genomics and beyond. It also raises new challenges, including patient selection and recruitment in clinical trials as well as pricing and reimbursement. In this panel, key leaders from across the industry will discuss the implications of the rise of personalized medicine and the hurdles that they face.
