TEDMED is hosting a google hangout Tue, Jun 24, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
“SOCAP has joined forces with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, The New York Academy of Medicine, and the Build Healthy Places Network to convene an in-depth conversation about what creates health in our society. The goal of the conference is to examine the roles of entrepreneurs, investors, and funding bodies in the larger public health ecosystem.
Each year, $2.7 trillion is spent on medical care in the US. The recent changes in healthcare require a fresh look at innovative ways to leverage that capital in more efficient ways. By applying a systems approach in understanding social determinants of health, we opens up entrepreneurial opportunities and new investment frameworks that can drastically reduce healthcare costs and improve lives.
Join us for this cross-sector examination into what creates health in our society, and where new market opportunities exist. This conversation will look at the intersection of health systems, social systems, and solutions that generate well-being in communities. See how incentives can be better aligned to drive outcomes through case studies of organizations that are leading the field and creating the outcomes we seek. Position yourself in the ecosystem as we create the market that values health.
Register here for SOCAP Health: Creating a Market that Values Health, held at The New York Academy of Medicine on June 25th & 26th.”
