Better Together: Improving Interconnectivity in the Healthcare Ecosystem
Interconnectivity in the healthcare ecosystem is vital and determines life and death. In the US, the healthcare system faces uneven distribution of access and quality, ambiguity surrounding big data, misaligned incentives, and a broken supply chain. The global pandemic underscored the fragility of our system, but also the importance of global ties. It exemplified the need for further coordination between patients, providers, payers, innovators, manufacturers, and policy leaders. Join leaders to discuss the complexity of the healthcare ecosystem and how innovation and interconnectivity are necessary to build a more robust and flexible system.
