8:30 AM to 9:30 AM - Breakfast Panel Topic: Finding the Right Dose of Portfolio Risk
New drug development, genomic therapies, precision medicine and personalized care are fantastic developments in healthcare—but ultimately, they must drive business value and financial performance for investors. Innovative treatments raise financial, business model, operational, societal and ethical questions. How do you know whether they're driving value that's worth investment? This session will discuss how to balance your portfolio by finding the right "dose" of innovation—identifying investments that advance discoveries of new, effective drugs and treatments, while keeping an eye on efficacy, access and cost.

10:30 AM to 11:30 AM - Mid-Morning Panel Topic: Adjusting to Disruption: The 'New Normal' in Healthcare?
Today, disruption—technological advancements like artificial intelligence and genomic mapping, and the growth of wearable technology and telemedicine—is bringing greater focus on non-traditional health companies for wellness and prevention. Technologies like the Apple Watch are working their way through the FDA approval process for preventative applications and detection, which could shrink Medicare and Medicaid spending around the treatment of certain conditions in the future. The FDA's Software PreCert Pilot Program, aiming to fast-track the approval process for medical software products like those of Apple and Fitbit, is opening new avenues for industry innovation.

For traditional providers, the time to move on this trend is now. Collaborating in innovative ways with disruptors grows the potential for smarter, more effective treatment across the care continuum and better healthcare outcomes. In this session, we'll hear how new products are paving the way for startups and traditional providers to better meet the needs of today's empowered consumers, and what other areas of healthcare are ripe for disruption.

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM - Lunch Panel Topic:  Money-based Guarantee: The Next Drug Pricing Model?
Deciding which treatment options to prescribe a patient? There's a database for that. Providers are using real-time clinical data to provide better quality of care to their patients through treatment options that are based on efficacy and outcomes—and their reimbursement levels depend on it. As the U.S. healthcare industry shifts to value-based reimbursement models, it's creating a catalyst to outcomes-based drug pricing. Clinical proof, once a sufficient foundation for a drug's success, is no longer enough. If drug manufacturers are to stay competitive in the new healthcare environment while reconciling pricing pressures, they must follow healthcare's lead and add demonstration of efficacy to their formula for success.
