Global Public Health Track:

Affordable and Accessible Solutions that Will Scale

Creating solutions to minimize the stigma and challenges that surround patients living with their illness. This track will discover innovative approaches aimed to improve a patient’s ability to maintain a high level of independence by improving patient quality of life and patient outcomes.

Connected Health Track:

Breaking Down Barriers Across Health Systems

How can we use multi-source data to improve the provision of healthcare services? With the distribution of healthcare for a single patient across many providers, it is now more important than ever to improve synergy. This track will focus on innovating existing community workflows to promote quality healthcare delivery.
