“Swipe Right: Creating Healthcare That’s HOT.” There’s pent up demand for a radically different infrastructure in healthcare, but “new world orders” don’t come easy.

Join Matt Hermann from Ascension, Brad Perkins from Human Longevity and their friends as they reveal how to survive the hard moments while creating the next generation in healthcare. This session brings together successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists for a conversation that creates connections, sparks dialogue and enables innovators and stakeholders to partner for success.
