07/02/2014 – New Models in HealthCare

6:30 PM – 9:30 PM EST
Hashtag #H2NYC
Hosted by Smart Design
Attendees: 150
See who came here The H2NYC Crowd

The Event:
One of the most difficult aspects of starting or running a business in healthcare is getting your model right. Even once established, regulatory and market forces drive model shifts that few other industries face with such regularity. People say our industry is slow to change – and often in ways that are not adaptive. Most of our creativity and energy are poured into reacting to the changing landscape we operate in. In this event we explored a few of the best new ideas and models in the space and work out some of the challenges in a fun, interactive session led by Michelle Zimmerman, Chief Innovation Officer at Alphacare and formerly at Aetna. Watch the event here.
