Join Jillian Manus, Managing Partner at Structure Capital in conversation with Guillaume de Zwirek of WELL and Dr. Carlos Bustamante of Stanford University to discuss the future of digital health.

If 2017 was a record-shattering year for digital health, what will 2018 and beyond bring?

Last year, we saw investments in digital health reach $7 billion with the most mega deals ever ($100M or more). It was also the year the FDA approved the “digital pill,” hospitals experimented with VR for pain management, and insurance companies officially integrated fitness wearables into wellness programs.

Today, healthcare is in a state of disruption and opportunities for change are abundant. There are also real challenges. With escalating healthcare costs, overburdened hospitals, and an aging population facing chronic conditions, this session will explore how technology can provide sustainable solutions for both patients and providers. We’ll identify key trends and evaluate their impact for the future. And we’ll explore new systems of support along with critical challenges founders and investors face as they strive to improve healthcare for all.

This session is for:

  • Pre-launch (idea to protoype)
  • Launch (product/service being used by customers)
  • Growth (scaling customers, products/services and markets)
  • Hyper Growth (growing your team and expertise at the same time as products/services and customers)
  • Legacy (long-term business sustainability, exit strategies)

Spaces are limited and offered first-come, first-served. By registering you agree to our terms of use.*
