MedTech next: Transforming the journey of care

Innovation starts with insight and seeing challenges in a new way. In health care, the transformative power of digital is redefining innovation and helping stakeholders envision and bring about new solutions to unmet needs. Novel approaches to value-based care and partnering arrangements are also emerging as organizations develop new ways to improve care and lower costs.

Join Deloitte at The MedTech Conference as we explore how companies can leverage digital innovation to transform the journey of care, and do so in a way that addresses the cyber and patient safety risks connected devices can introduce. We will also explore some of the new risk-based arrangements that are emerging as the industry starts to adopt value-based care and implications for medtech companies. Finally, we will discuss how the medtech sector can leverage novel, viable approaches to advance early stage innovation and foster a robust start-up community that further supports the development of creative health care solutions.
