Stanford Medicine X Conference

Healthcare Innovation Special Event Only
Entrepreneurship in Digital Health: Connecting Patients, Providers, and Entrepreneurs

This pre-conference workshop is held on Thursday Sept 4, 2014.

The healthcare industry represents nearly a fifth of U.S. GDP and it is going through a period of dramatic change. What are the underlying currents of this change? What previously unimagined models are emerging and proving successful? Which models will find themselves closing their doors?  How do we tell the difference between true disruption and "evolution masquerading as innovation?"

During this special day-long interactive workshop, Medicine X will bring together patients, providers, Stanford business/engineering students, innovators, and visionaries to show how collaborating can lead to new ideas, partnerships and bridges for change.
The day will consist of small intimate brainstorms and workshops led by fast growing start-ups and companies.

For patients and providers, workshops will allow you to share your daily experiences and frustrations and teach you how to turn them into the next big idea.

For entrepreneurs, the day will help you connect with patients, providers, researchers, and Stanford business and engineering students, all of whom will offer vivid feedback and inspire new ideas.

The goal is to generate future relationships and partnerships.

Specific topics that will be discussed include:

  1. Changing clinical and business models
  2. Patient centered care and a seismic power shift
  3. Cost and outcome transparency
  4. Robo-doc: Decision and clinical support tools to improve workflow and care
  5. New Data Threshold: How to prove relevance in the world of today and tomorrow

Webcast: Taking Stock of the ACA

E-mail Print PDF

Taking Stock of the Affordable Care Act:
What Are the Data Telling Us?
Tuesday, July 29, 2014, 12:00–1:30 p.m. EDT
By Webcast

Tune in live with the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Center for a discussion of new findings from the Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS) on changes in health coverage, access, and use; experiences with the Marketplaces; and characteristics of the remaining uninsured. Since the beginning of the first open enrollment period in October 2013, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has produced major changes in how millions of Americans are getting health insurance. Beginning in early 2013, Urban Institute experts implemented HRMS, a quarterly internet survey of a nationally representative sample of adults and children, to collect data on the implementation and early effects of the ACA.

The event will evaluate the ACA to date and consider implications for next year’s open enrollment period. Urban Institute experts Sharon Long and Stephen Zuckerman will discuss changes in health care coverage and marketplace exchange enrollment. Katherine Hempstead from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will focus on characteristics of the remaining uninsured. The discussion will be moderated by Alan Weil, the new editor of Health Affairs.

The Health Reform Monitoring Survey is jointly funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Urban Institute.

Registration for the webcast is not required.


Welcome Remarks

Sarah Rosen Wartell, president, Urban Institute

Alan Weil, editor, Health Affairs

Katherine Hempstead, director, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Sharon Long, senior fellow, Health Policy Center, Urban Institute
Stephen Zuckerman, senior fellow and codirector, Health Policy Center, Urban Institute
