New Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) has been making studies and opening up new vistas to redesign the delivery of care. At the same time the healthcare marketplace has found new interest in population health and determining the prevalence of disease, behaviors of and projected economic impact of health and wellness. To that end, CMS has made historic data releases including the largest data set of doctors and hospitals in history to support identifying provider practice patterns with national and regional benchmarks in order to transition the delivery of care to value based payments. https://www.cms.gov/Newsroom/MediaReleaseDatabase/Press-releases/2015-Press-releases-items/2015-06-01.html

The interactive BootCamp explores HIT, population health and new economic models for delivering care for diverse communities. Joshua Rosenthal, PhD, will walk the audience through the evolution of an idea to a value proposition giving specific context to why healthcare is so hard and different, but also to why digital health tools can become an incredible way to change how we all experience health. Developers, entrepreneurs and innovators will practice matching their technology, solutions and products with value propositions for the delivery of care in diverse socio-economic communities.

“It’s easy to start with cool technology or an idea, but the trick is to connect it to a meaningful value proposition. The problem is that healthcare is unlike other markets and historically has suffered from perverse economic incentives from a Fee for Service payment model. Now, with advances in technology, the move to value based economics in the delivery of care, and historical releases of publicly available government data, all the pieces are in place to serve diverse populations in meaningful ways and connect population health to market value with a clear social and economic return on investment.” Joshua Rosenthal, Chief Scientific Office, RowdMap, Inc.
