Steve Rietiker, MD

Physician, CEO and speaker investing in the future of the healthcare industry

2016 JP Morgan Healthcare Conference / San Francisco:

I spoke to many CEOs, finance experts, entrepreneurs and investors. Let me summarize their views as follows:

-“Cloudy the future is”
-the only constant will be change
-the vision is patient-centric
-we will see a “uberification” of healthcare
-the U.S. we don’t have evidence-based but reimbursement-based medicine
-exploration meets innovation
-remote monitoring products and services will sky-rocket, we will see more contextualized monitoring platforms
-former senior execs of Microsoft, Apple, Google and the like wish to do something meaningful and now move into or invest in digital health companies
-while large players have huge resources innovation will be heavily dominated by start-up companies
