Moving the Needle Vignettes

"Moving the Needle Vignettes" will provide the entrepreneur and its customer a shared spot light during a moderated discussion on how they implemented and validated successfully a new HealthTech solution: The What, the How and the So What. We are planning 7 vignettes of 25 minutes each to address the pain points for

  • Providers (i.e. new POC decision support, team care collaboration, chronic care, patient engagement)
  • Payers (i.e. ACO tools, population management, risk management)
  • Employers (i.e. data transparency, employee engagement, wellness)
  • Pharma (i.e. drug compliance, total disease management)
  • Consumers (i.e. self-management)


Move the Needle Pavilion

The “Move the Needle Pavilion” on the exhibit floor will identify and highlight companies that have submitted a qualification submission and have demonstrated some of their value propositions. We will organize the exhibit floor by the 5 types of target customers: provides, payers, employers, pharma, consumers

The “Meet Your Next Partner” one-on-one match making meetings between exhibiting companies and potential customers, partners and investor. Innovation executives at leading healthcare care systems, employers and payers have agreed to meet selected, pre-vetted, exhibitors based on their criteria of interest. We will match their interest with exhibitors that submit a “Meet Your Next Partner” product validation and company profile submission.
