Tackling Engagement to Overcome Barriers to Health Equity


Christine Brocato, System Vice President, Strategic Innovation, CommonSpirit Health

CMS defines Health Equity as attaining the highest level of health for all, where everyone has a fair and just opportunity for optimal health regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, or language. While addressing health disparities has always been a main role for the public health sector, health equity has also become a key focus for the healthcare industry especially in recent years, spurring novel technologies, new companies, and cross-sector partnerships.  And while many good strides have been made, there is still a long way to go to close large gaps that exist in addressing systemic barriers within the US. This panel will focus on key areas of opportunity to identify and engage underserved communities and discuss the role that technology and innovation can play in scaling these solutions.

Future of Virtual/Home Delivery, Particularly for Complex and Specialty Care


Lee Shapiro, JD, Managing Partner, 7wire Ventures

Consumerism in healthcare is more than easing wayfinding in hospitals and telehealth visits. Home health services have been an industry priority as evidenced by CVS Health's proposed acquisition of Signify Health and United Health Group's acquisition of Landmark Health. Tech-enabled services are meeting consumers where they live, improving outcomes and reducing the cost of care. Individuals with complex conditions such as kidney disease, cancer or autism are being treated in family rooms while specialty care, such as cardiac rehab and neurodevelopmental diagnoses, have been made available to those in need, even in remote areas.
