From October 27-30, Vynyl descended upon Las Vegas for HLTH 2019. The event brought together more than 6,000 attendees from around the world, from established healthcare companies to startups who are blazing new trails in digital health technologies.
In the United States alone, healthcare is a $3.7 trillion industry, but it comes with some sobering statistics: 40 percent of Americans with health insurance have trouble paying deductibles while 77 percent of Americans are concerned that a major health event could bankrupt them. Against this backdrop, industry leaders—including more than 950 CEOs and founders—gathered to catalyze changes in healthcare to increase both affordability and quality of care.
HLTH 2019 featured more than 300 speakers across 19 different conference tracks, including focuses on cutting-edge science and artificial intelligence, as well as topics ranging from chronic health conditions to human-centered care. Videos from many of the general sessions can be found on HLTH’s YouTube channel.
For the Vynyl team, the conference was a chance to focus on health and outcomes reimagined through digital health. For example, Marcus Osborn (VP, Health Transformation) of Walmart presented a compelling picture of how Walmart is bringing a data-driven, fully integrated care experience to populations in need.
HLTH brings people together across the entire healthcare ecosystem with their events and digital content centered on innovation and transformation in the industry. For more information about upcoming events, check out HLTH.com.
