    Nicholas Webb

    Nicholas Webb is a world-renowned enterprise strategist, best-selling author and futurist. An innovator with more than 45 patents, he invented one of the first wearable technologies and one of the world’s smallest medical implants. He is the author of The Innovation Playbook, The Digital Innovation Playbook and the best-seller What Customers Crave. In this provocative session, he will discuss top five trends that will shape the future of healthcare, healthcare as a consumer product and designing market-leading patient experiences using the Internet of things, wearables and interoperability. He will also speak about the importance of leaders who can institutionalize “intrapreneurship” as a way to innovate in disruptive times and build superstar organizations.

    Dr. Robert Wachter

    An international expert on the impact of Health IT and author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine’s Computer Age, Dr. Robert Wachter will provide a unique perspective on healthcare’s digital journey and what it will take to be successful. In his widely cited work, he has highlighted the surprising impact of EHRs on workflow and communication. Moreover, his observations regarding the “digital squeeze” on doctors are at the heart of the struggle many healthcare organizations face. Wachter, named in 2015 by Modern Healthcare magazine as the most influential physician-executive in the U.S., is a practicing physician, chairman of one of the top departments of medicine in the U.S., and he chaired the National Advisory Group on HIT in England. He’ll offer new insights and practical steps to overcome the so-called “productivity paradox” of IT as it relates to healthcare.

    Liz Murray

    Liz Murray rose from some of New York’s meanest streets to graduate from the Ivy League and has become an international speaker. The child of drug-addicted parents, she was homeless at age 15 – but determined to not to be defined by her circumstances. She earned her high school diploma in just two years and won a scholarship to Harvard University that would turn her bleak past into a future filled with possibility. 

    Her memoir, Breaking Night, made the New York Times’ best-seller list and her presentations have inspired audiences around the world. In this session, she will share how perseverance, vision and the support of others can help you overcome adversity. In addition, she will discuss how you can adjust your thinking to lead a more purposeful life and how you can encourage others to follow the same path.
