Chicago, IL

The 2nd Annual Financing Innovation and Technology in Healthcare Conference is evolving into one of the most respected and influential industry events, which attracts an impressive group of financiers, researchers, policy experts, and entrepreneurs to network and exchange ideas about financing healthcare innovation and technology in the post-reform environment. The 2012 conference in Chicago was attended by approximately 100 professionals representing healthcare, technology, venture capitalist, law, and private equity.

Knobbe Martens partners Thomas Yee and Bryan Wahl will be panelists at the 1:00pm session titled “Transforming Healthcare through ‘Big Data’: Accelerating Value and Innovation.”

Overview: As healthcare expenditures rise and reimbursements fall, the importance of providing cost-effective care is critical. To mitigate these cost shifts, risk-sharing models have become more common and stakeholders’ priorities are being redefined. In particular, stakeholders are now more focused on the costs of their decision and rely on big data to help make evidenced based decisions. This panel will explore how various healthcare stakeholders have shifted their focus to information technology to prepare for emerging challenges.
