Announcing the First MobCon Digital Health Speakers

Kyra Davis, Director of Academic, Government and Accelerator Relations for LaunchPad Central and Russ Lawrence, Product Director, Data Enablement and Analytics for Optum will be among the speakers at MobCon Digital Health September 7. Joining them onstage will be a representative from athenahealth.

LaunchPad Central provides a software platform to help leading healthcare organizations realize continuous improvement. Meanwhile, Optum combines data, analytics and technology to manage healthcare.

Are new ways to measure and sense enough? How must our attitude around quality of life, quality of care and how we manage chronic illness shift? What m- and eHealth tools can help us facilitate this? When has the implementation and adoption of digital health technologies fallen short? MobCon Digital Health programming will explore through the lens of five themes.

The future of digital health + eye on entrepreneurism

The future of digital health, one of the five featured themes at MobCon Digital Health San Francisco, is about connecting the dots. Disparate solutions in telemedicine and intelligent diagnostic support tools among others inspire excitement. But they won’t move the dial. Integration will. Why? Cost is the elephant in the room. Only when digital health solutions don’t add incremental costs but instead driven them down — will the most forward-thinking solutions be adopted by enterprise organizations and health systems on a large scale.

MobCon Digital Health San Francisco will host a startup showcase designed to spotlight the entrepreneurs realizing them. The showcase will run throughout the day giving startups access to healthcare leadership.
