Frontiers Health 2016

17 - 18 November 2016, Berlin, Germany.
Healthcare is being transformed and to a good extent will be disrupted by digital technologies. Frontiers Health has been designed to provide a unique experiential platform to learn, exchange and get inspired. Practitioners of disruptive health will engage in many highly inspirational, informative and controversial lessons and conversations all meant to give companies, entrepreneurs and VCs a useful roadmap, key insights and top level learning.

Building on last year's exciting talks on digital disruption and technologies in healthcare, this year's Frontiers Health is coming to Berlin with many great speakers and formats. As with all prior Frontiers conferences, experience will be king, with a variety of hands on workshops, immersive sessions and thought-provoking keynotes.

Healthcare meets Innovation
Dive into 2 days of cutting-edge health innovations and future trends that will shape the world

Day 1: explore new trends and possibilities, join workshops and do great networking
Day 2: get inspired with best keynoters and brightest minds around.

Eight guiding themes
Conference activities will explore guiding themes inspired to healthcare trends and innovation topics:

  • Breakthrough Innovations
    2016 saw the creation of external brain-to-muscle interfaces to help paralyzed people regain use of their limbs, thought mapping experiments which determined that humans store specific memories in the same areas of the brain, the use of cell stems to regenerate portions of the brain destroyed by stroke and bring back lost functions, and 3D printing that can create biological implants that also contain electronic sensors. As each Frontier of innovation is reached, how far away are we from true Singularity?
  • Design for Health
    YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat and airbnb, are only some of many new successful businesses created and launched by designers rather then techies! With designers now in the boardroom, leveraging user centricity as a key component of business innovation, it is only natural to expect that health consumers will come to expect this type of experience when managing their own healthcare needs. What then constitutes well thought out business design for health?
  • Digital Therapies
    What are they and how do their clinical approach and beneficial results disrupt established medical practice? Learn how to accelerate, finance and monetize digital therapies through end-user subscriptions, large group licensing and payer models.
  • Health Insurance Innovation
    While payors' cost cutting and outcomes based reimbursements have forced providers and patients to innovate to meet these new goals, the payors themselves have lagged behind in innovation. Learn about the types of change insurers must implement immediately to survive and thrive in the new healthcare landscape.
  • Reimbursement and Business Models
    Non-revenue generating clinical pilots are not enough to demonstrate business potential. To be successful, business plans need to consider various revenue models towards reimbursements, strategic relationships with insurers and more. Learn more about these considerations in a series of events surrounding this topic.
  • Scientific and Medical Validation
    The importance of establishing clinical relevancy through scientific and medical validation. Do traditional clinical trial methodologies still apply, or is there a need of new study guidelines and methodologies?
  • Startup Funding from Seed Stage through Scale-Up
    An EU focused view of the various steps in the funding of digital health initiatives. What are the healthcare and financial models to consider, and how should financing and equity be structured once more investors enter the picture?
  • Strategic Partnerships
    Given the width and breadth of healthcare, it is difficult to imagine a world where a single entity will be able to deliver on all of its needs. Then, what are the different win-win strategies for startups to consider in partnering with other innovators towards the creation of a healthcare services universe?
