The National Workforce Health Economics Summit brings together senior corporate and health leaders from across stakeholder sectors including employers, health plans, domestic and international providers, governments and others for peer discussion and collaboration on how to effectively integrate workforce solutions. The summit is comprised of two tracks that deal with both corporate executives and health plan executives.
A number of medical providers outside the United States, offering affordable high quality procedures, are creating increasing competitive pressure for U.S. patients. As the cost of healthcare in the U.S. continues to rise, the market dynamics are not different than those that forever changed other industries like electronics, automotive, financial services and others. The HCGS frames the issues, opportunities and potential responses for both U.S. and international stakeholders including domestic and international providers, U.S. employers, health insurers, and economic development executives recognizing the value of establishing medical centers of excellence.
We will provide a consumer forum including workshops and the Destination Medicine Consumer Pavilion to demonstrate why millions of Americans who canâ€™t afford certain medical procedures in the U.S. are turning to medical tourism as a solution. These workshops will provide valuable information and input from leading medical tourism providers. We will assist the visitors to this event by providing a better understanding of and evaluation of medical tourism as an option. We will also connect them with highly accredited medical centers and physicians that provide world-class medical care at savings of up to 80% compared to prices in the U.S.
The Healthcare Innovations Capital Connections Summit will judge emerging companies in light of new industry trends. The event will feature presentations by entrepreneurs of their business plans to an experienced panel of investors and strategic partners. The panel of judges will rate the presenters and offer pearls of wisdom from their experience, and then identify one outstanding organization as The â€œBestâ€ New Innovator in Healthcare.
