The Prime Health Innovation Summit brings together thought leaders from around the country to address innovations in health and healthcare from apps to new digital technologies. To be held at the Colorado Convention Center May 16-17, the 2016 summit will feature more than 40 national leaders in healthcare innovation. Organizers anticipate that more than 1,000 will attend the conference; the 2014 event drew roughly 200 attendees.
"Achieving interoperability, providing quality care with good outcomes, ensuring patient and provider satisfaction, and managing chronic diseases are all top concerns for the healthcare system, which is why we've created a series of collaborative discussions that will address each of these concerns at the summit," according to a statement from the Prime Health Collaborative. The event will provide a forum for participants from digital health ecosystems across the country to share ideas and discuss best practices.
Healthcare leaders like Joe Sowell, the vice president of corporate development and innovation strategy at HCA, and Gary Loveman, the executive vice president at Anthem and the president of Healthagen, will be in attendance. One session will feature a discussion on the innovations that the healthcare system needs with Ashley Simmons, director of innovation at the Florida Hospital System and Joe Sammen of the Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved, and others. Another on building digital healthcare models includes Adam Brickman of Omada Health and Matt Sopich of myStrength.
The collaborative also will showcase the results of its efforts. "We'll be offering a public demonstration of Prime Health Qualify, a first-of-its-kind tool that will allow digital health companies to gain traction in the healthcare system by helping them demonstrate clinical efficacy. Prime Health Collaborate, an online collaborative platform built in partnership with Salesforce, will also be demoed at the summit to encourage members of other regional ecosystems to join our community of digital health innovators," the organization's statement explains.
