SI 2022 Annual Conference: Face Your Future: Healthcare’s Digital Race

April 20, 2022 - April 22, 2022

Face Your Future: Healthcare’s Digital Race

  • Addressing “affordability” to minimize financial harm
  • Delivering “mass personalization”
  • Forging partnerships and refining platforms
  • Restoring and renewing healthcare’s workforce

April 20-22, 2022, Westin Kierland, Scottsdale, AZ

Facing the Future…Together

Healthcare’s digital race requires stamina, innovation and interdependence to build an equitable, digitally enabled healthcare ecosystem that meets individuals where they are in a consumer-friendly way. Designed to be both realistic and optimistic, SI’s 2022 Annual Conference coalesces key Executive Members, expert facilitators and today’s thought leaders to innovate around the changes needed and the most efficient ways to get there.

Overview

What can you expect from the SI Annual Conference? This is a panels-only conference with moderated debrief discussion groups for collective sense-making, candid conversations about lessons learned, plenty of time for informal networking, and an earnest desire to collaborate with peers to solve the truly tough issues of building and operating the health system of the future.

Who Should Attend

This invitation-only conference is an interactive experience for SI Member executives. SI conferences are intimate sessions, designed for C-Suite executives (management, information and security, analytics, innovation, transformation, strategy, operations and finance), member officers, board members and other business and clinical executives who would benefit from peer collaboration, information sharing and networking.

Our approach is more “participation” and less “presentation,” so come prepared for relaxed, informal and highly interactive discussion with senior management teams from other leading health systems.

      Follow the Money: Fueling Healthcare’s Future

      Keynote

      How prepared are we for state and federal regulatory policies that impact funding? For capital-market tools like private equity, venture, hedge funds and investment banking or Fed monetary policy? How do we up our game in these areas?

        Reactor Panel: Follow the Money – Capital Markets

        Private equity and venture capital investment in healthcare is at historic highs fueled by market interest in healthcare as a growing share of domestic and global GNP. This is further driven by a sector ripe for consolidation, transformation, and disruption. At the same time, health systems are pursuing their own investment strategies to find new sources of revenue, to diversify business models, and to disrupt themselves before they are victims of disruption. Our panel brings together seasoned leaders in the provider and investment sectors to discuss:

        • Why is so much capital being deployed in healthcare?
        • How do investors view the overall healthcare system and what are the key investable themes they are pursuing such as consumerism, value based care and associated risk arrangements, the promise of new analytical technologies such as AI, machine learning, blockchain, and other forms of advanced analytics?
        • What are the critical success factors for investors and what are the lessons learned from failures?
        • How can health systems best work productively with private equity and venture funds?
        • Where have they decided to go it alone?
        • What role does the changing national healthcare policy and reimbursement environment play in investment decisions?
        • Where are investors headed next and why?

                • What are new partnership and collaboration strategies that you are deploying – or plan to deploy?
                • How do you develop shared accountability for improving health outcomes and reducing health disparities across all the participants in a population health ecosystem (purchasers, providers, consumers)?
                • What investments will be required by today’s health system to prepare for this new future in the way of technologies, organizational models, talent, etc.?

                                    • What does it take to operationalize this across every aspect of operations from clinicians to support staff to front line? How do we align the organization to deliver on the consumer experience promise?

                                            • What evaluation would we need to see to believe / trust the RWE derived from a dataset? How do we evaluate it against patient outcomes and total cost of care?
                                            • Doesn’t it capture the mistakes of the past? How does it learn? How does it keep up with new knowledge?
                                            • How do you deal with bias?
                                            • Should RWE be derived from national, international, or local data?
                                            • How are we changing healthcare diagnosis and treatment patterns using real-world data?
                                            • Is AI incrementally or transformatively making an impact on clinical decision-making?

                                                      Possible Discussion Questions:

                                                      • Systemness of healthcare – how will we simplify how consumers navigate the entire ecosystem of healthcare? Where do people want to receive care and why? What are all the tools you need in your “digital toolbox” to provide care where and when consumers need it?
                                                      • How do we deliver on this new vision of care where the consumer feels most comfortable as they move through their healthcare journey? How do you build trust and relationship at scale? How do you partner effectively without losing the personal relationship?
                                                      • How do we solve the “last mile” of healthcare consumer experience, e.g., digital/in-person care, self-care, purchasing, etc.? How can personalized care translate into lower cost of health?
                                                      • How do you develop partnerships that allow you to deliver on a value based financing approach to manage this ecosystem of care? How do these new delivery models translate into a lower PMPM cost?

                                                              • What can we do to drive down the total cost of healthcare? Historically we haven’t been able to “move the needle” on that, why is that? What do we mean by “the cost of care” and what we have we learned so far that will affect the way we manage going forward?
                                                              • How has the pandemic changed our thinking about the cost of care? What else has changed and how might we be in a better position now to succeed at addressing this issue of cost of care? What questions should we be asking? What are the barriers and how do we set expectations about what we can change going forward?
                                                              • Do provider sponsored health plans have a unique leverage when it comes to cost structure? Are there downsides to this model as well?
                                                              • We have seen a great deal of digital health investments over the past few years, and significant advancements in technology adoption; how does this relate to the cost of care? How is digital health being funded and with what expectations about cost savings or long term strategic value?
                                                              • If we look out 10 years into the future what do we feel about the future of this cost of care discussion? What is our “best guess” at the future healthcare reimbursement environment? How does that align with our cost structure? What does that suggest as a strategic direction today?
