Being healthy is a lot more than not being sick. Doctors, hospitals, patients, pharma companies, tech firms, medical device makers, academics, public policymakers, insurance companies and entrepreneurs are all working together to build a healthier society. With the world’s healthcare systems being transformed by resource depletion and an aging population, patients have become consumers with choices, there has been a shift from volume-based to value-based healthcare, and prevention is now on more equal footing with treatment.

What kind of partnerships will allow for continued innovation? How do we build a new business model that drives the shift to value-based healthcare?

In other words, what groundwork must be done today to continue building healthy societies?
