Transform 2013 – Scaling Health Care Innovations to New Heights

Scaling Healthcare Sessions

In order to reach new heights, today’s health care innovations must be scalable to large populations, and the panelists for the Transform Symposium’s Scale session are advancing large-scale health care solutions forward each and every day. Whether it be handling the clinical advancement for 38 million members, helping companies create simple yet meaningful messages for their health solutions, or providing a “home-away-from-home” for families all over the globe as their children face a medical crisis, the first-hand experience and wealth of knowledge that these panelists bring to the Transform symposium will provide for amazing insight and discussion.

In addition to blazing a trail for other organizations to follow, the programs and achievements of these panelists also reduce uncertainty of change by creating specific examples of models that others can learn from.
