Inventing the Future of Health: Phoenix

February 23, 2016
Phoenix, AZ

Inventing the Future of Health, an Atlantic-produced town hall program, convened leading national experts to discuss what's next in health care. The conversation focused on health care costs, the outsize impact big data analytics could have on quality and price of care and other cutting-edge topics shaping American health policy. The half-day forum included a special focus on the most pressing issues faced by large employers today. While predicting health care behavior and cost trends is never easy, we attempted to do just that with the help of top thinkers, industry leaders and practitioners who are driving health care innovation.
