Reaching Across Populations to Provide Culturally Competent Care
The Business Case for Cultural Competence:
Health care companies are increasingly focused on frameworks to address health equity and social determinants. Among these is cultural competence: an approach that honors the cultural preferences and socioeconomic influences that shape patient choices, behaviors, and outcomes.
Join us for a discussion about how stakeholders can collaborate to create the financial case for achieving health equity through culturally competent care.

1:00pm Early Afternoon Panels
Cracking Development Silos Between Clinical Trials and Real World Evidence
Exogenous factors such as genomics, behavior, and social and environmental influences play a critical role in delivering outcomes and value for patients and health systems. Meanwhile, technology is finally allowing the capture and analysis of such real-world data.
Beyond previous safety and post-market use cases, learn about more integrated use of RWE across the end-to-end product cycle: to support regulatory decisions, advance disease understanding and clinical guidelines, and support outcome based reimbursement decisions.

Social Determinants of Health Technology for Population Health
Despite the trend toward value-based care and wraparound services that address patient needs holistically, the market for technology solutions incorporating the social determinants of health is nascent: as of June 2018, fewer than 4% of health systems and managed care organizations have invested in this technology. This panel will include perspectives on opportunities and challenges in this relatively new market.

Medicaid For More: How Medicaid Expansion is Changing Healthcare in America
Medicaid is quickly becoming the key to expanding health coverage in America. Newly-elected democratic governors across the country are growing Medicaid, including Governor Gavin Newsom who has proposed expanding Medicaid to cover more undocumented immigrants. What innovations are driving Medicaid's popularity and sustainability? What does the expansion of Medicaid in states like California mean for the country's larger healthcare debate? Why has Medicaid succeeded where the ACA has failed?
Join us as we discuss the current surge and future of Medicaid in the United States.
