Doom or Boom? Digital Health’s Financial Future
November 15, 2022 at 11 AM PST on the Arena Stage.

When the good times are rolling, it’s easier to take risks in the short term. The funding is flowing, outlooks are rosy, what could go wrong, right? The real test of resilience is in a market downturn, which is where we find ourselves now. Has the digital health bubble finally burst? Let’s take a step back and evaluate the current state of the market, look at both short and long term predictions and dissect what the heck founders should be doing during this unsettling time. Layoffs and down rounds are not always the answer.

The Vertical Re-imagination of Health & Wellness
November 14, 2022 at 11:00 AM PST on the Garden Stage

We’re moving towards a future where we’ll have a different app, membership, platform, etc. for each and every one of our health and wellness needs. Each is a trusted source of care, motivation and more importantly a strong sense of community with other people on a similar path to well-being. Each specialized company built squarely for the unique needs of the people they serve, never attempting to be a one-size fit all. Each member gets that personalized touch, earning their loyalty for the entirety of their health and wellness journey, not simply for a blip in time. The future of wellness is personalized and community-oriented. Meet leaders on the forefront of vertically re-imagined health.

Medication vs. Diet: Is an Apple a Day Enough? 
November 14, 2022 at 11:50 AM PST on the Garden Stage

Food is fuel. In many cases, food is the first line of defense against obesity, type II diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, and the list goes on and on. But like everything healthy, it’s not that simple. Personal nutrition is a complex puzzle and when that M&M’s container is readily accessible, we might abandon the parameters of a diet. We’re only human, right? Cardio metabolic health is a cornerstone of wellness, but at what point do genetics overpower environmental effects? Novel medications have proven outcomes in healthy weight-loss and improved metabolism, but it would be remiss to not mention the adverse side-effects. Hear from leaders on both sides of the debate, ready to masterfully defend their model.

Care that Gives a Homey Feeling
November 16, 2022 at 10:20 AM PST on the Seaport Stage

The global pandemic forced us all to look inward and stay in. Our homes kept us safe, comfortable, and calm throughout a trying several years. This shift added to the viability of alternative methods of healthcare delivery and physical sites of care. By reconsidering how we deliver care, namely the superior efficacy of care in the home, we are on the cusp of transforming the unsustainable $4 trillion cost of medicine in our country while addressing our nation’s overall health and well-being. But what happens when a home is less than equipped to accept this care? Further, how can we scale home-based care while proactively preventing additional disparity? Join top home health leaders to dive into the pros and cons of this seismic shift in health.
