Financial Times US Healthcare & Life Sciences Summit

Bending the Cost Curve: Promise and Prospects

This industry-leading event from the FT, with the support of Deloitte, brings together executives from health care and life sciences companies, emerging industry entrants and other major players across the health care value chain to review the latest health care reforms, discuss digital transformation in the health care space, and strategies that can help stakeholders thrive in this disruptive space.

10 May 2018 | The Westin, Times Square | New York

The life sciences and health care industry is making new strides with continuous innovations in this scientific and technological space. Research and development (R&D) is pushing boundaries to build biosimilars, gene therapies, and other advanced therapies that hold the capabilities to cure even the most serious health conditions. Digitalization is spurring the growth in the industry, contributing to revolutionary inventions in digital medicine. Exponential technologies—artificial intelligence (AI), cognitive technologies, and robotics—are all transforming different stages of the value chain in the life sciences and health care ecosystem, from building strong R&D to early stage diagnosis and prevention. With such an evolving and disruptive space, health care costs are also bound to rise exorbitantly. It will be interesting to see how these factors will impact the future of health care systems and how providers, payers, and other stakeholders strategize to improve care delivery.
