Select full sessions from the 2016 conference are available on demand on our Fortune Magazine YouTube channel.
At our inaugural Brainstorm HEALTH conference, we focused on the best and brightest ideas in the digital health care revolution. In May, we’ll tackle how to speed up this disruption and seize the benefits now. We’ll dive deeper into what’s working, what’s not—and why? And we’ll drill down into some of the most urgent questions in this domain: How do we get investment into the right areas quickly—and overcome the barriers that stand in the way of progress. Our theme for our second Brainstorm HEALTH event says it all: “Accelerating the Health Revolution.” And yes, we mean to do just that.
As with our inaugural conference, Fortune Brainstorm HEALTH, in association with IBM Watson Health, will gather not only C-suite leaders of hospitals, insurers, and cutting-edge pharma and biotech companies, but also titans of venture capital, tech and telecom, and other industries, who are rapidly changing the face of health care. Our Fortune Brainstorm HEALTH meeting gathers a hand-selected group experts and problem-solvers for two days. The forum will cover four pillars—personal wellness, intervention, research, and the value chain. Our aim is not only to push some boundaries in each of these areas, but also to show how businesses, both established and new, can lead the way. And, yes, as with all of our Brainstorm events, Fortune will disseminate these ideas on our website, in the magazine, on social media, and beyond.
