Home Runs in Pediatric Medical Innovation

[Part 1 in a three-session series] Since 2015, the Impact Pediatric Health Pitch Competition brings together leading pediatric hospitals, startups and other partners to draw attention to the need and opportunities for innovation in pediatric settings. Last year, as part of the Southwest National Pediatric Device Consortium, we committed $100,000 to support promising innovations to focus on children's health in the tech sector. In this session, learn from pediatric hospital leaders about the priorities in medical device innovations and previous prize winners and hear from Vasum Peiris, Chief Medical Officer for Pediatrics and Special Populations at FDA/CDRH, about how innovations in medical devices for children and other special populations result in better care for all.

(A Roof) Over Our Heads: Fair Housing & Health

The connection between safe, affordable, quality housing and our overall health should not be underestimated. Research shows how the production and rehabilitation of affordable housing leading to improved health outcomes and support living skills. Communities, payers, hospitals, tech industry and others are partnering in novel ways, such as assisting families in freeing up resources to purchase healthy food and healthcare expenditures, providing residential stability for individuals with HIV, and working to solve addiction or disabling chronic health problems. Learn how people who are unhoused, low-income families and/or seniors are finding health in “homes”, and how homeownership fosters greater self-esteem as well as increase stability and a heightened sense of security and control.

Beyond the Hospital Walls: Future of Pediatrics

[Part 2 in a three-session series] No longer should healthcare providers deliver the same type of pediatric care given five years ago. Advances in both the health and tech sectors as well as the changing demographics of children require new models of family engagement and empowerment, service delivery, design, priorities and funding. Reviewing five years’ worth of learning since the Impact Pediatric Health Pitch Competition was created in 2015, we will look ahead to the future of digital health and medical devices. We will challenge our thinking on closing disparities, building new models of care and service delivery within and beyond hospital walls.

Creating Collaborative Pediatric Partnerships

[Part 3 in a three-session series] There are various opportunities for pediatric hospitals to collaborate with nontraditional partners, but barriers exist that can hinder alignment and success. In this session, we’ll look at the myriad of ways pediatric hospitals across the country have worked with social service providers, commercial brands, local and regional governments and entrepreneurs to build healthier communities. Additionally, we’ll discuss both the systemic barriers to collaboration, various entry points to impact care delivery and success stories from across the country to collectively begin to examine models of medical innovation within the pediatric community.

The New Digital Divide in Rural & Urban America

As ever-faster wired and wireless connections proliferate, future services could disproportionately improve the quality of life for older, poorer and geographically isolated Americans. For example, next-generation job applications, school assignments and senior needs focus on connected homes and digital health care. The cost of non-adoption is high and likely to increase. It’s in our best interest —socially as well as economically — to help make the digitally disconnected the true value of inclusion, increase digital skills and advocate for access. As telecommuting and telemedicine become more widespread and effective, what does that mean for communities that lack basic Wi-Fi or digital resources? Learn from leading employers, civic and tech leaders about how we can bridge the divide.

The Illusion of Inclusion: A Pathway Forward

How can we shape the health ecosystem of the future in an inclusive way? The enormity of the challenges facing innovation and digital transformation in healthcare cannot be overstated. While medical care and wellness have advanced rapidly, they’ve still struggled to fully benefit complex technologies and inclusion of populations has suffered severely. How do you design technologies that are effective for end-users and populations of various racial/ethnic, linguistic and cultural backgrounds, multi-genders and abilities? How do we move towards accountability, consequences, retention and prioritizing things to make sure the industry and its products are inclusive? Learn from designers and consumers on how designs can be done right, and how we can continue to address the status quo.

The Role of Employers in Healthy Communities

The inability to address factors that promote health can become a community-wide issue, resulting in higher healthcare costs and reduce worker productivity for employers, particularly in businesses with a significant number of low-wage workers. Social data is invaluable information for healthcare service providers to aid research and investment decisions, monitor stigma, learn about treatment preferences and look at different industry perceptions. An industry example of progress is Aetna has developed an analytics tool (set to launch in early 2020) that will quantify the probable impact of social determinants of health on an employer’s health plan results. Learn how this partnership between employers, social service agencies and tech entrepreneurs made this possible.

Dollars with Dignity: A Medicaid Imperative

Investing in infrastructure is critical in serving vulnerable populations, as some individuals can connect differently with healthcare system and may need assistance to coordinate better care. Long-term services and support, quality measurement and delivery system reform need to be properly executed with the design and participation of underrepresented populations. Recognizing the critical need to bridge the technology gap, investing in the future of Medicaid is one of the biggest opportunities in the health tech sector today. Learn how the tech community is working with providers, investors, public health, policymakers and communities to ensure new technologies reach people who need it the most. We will also discuss forward-thinking payment and service delivery models for innovations.

Social + Health = Connected Communities

Research suggests that individuals who feel a sense of security, belonging, and trust in their community have better health. A key sign of community well-being is the value people place on—and how highly they prioritize—investments in health and well-being. Examples include investments in parks and improved accessibility for those with limited mobility. Pioneering technologies and novel partnerships are redefining the ways that large health systems work with smaller providers and how the health sector leverages the resources of the social sector through technology. From 211 and 911 Call Centers to the multi-city pilot between CVS and UniteUs, learn how new collaborations are redefining how we work together.

Alienation: Mental Health Behind Bars

Healthcare in the prison system has a long way to go to be called humane. Like the rest of the country, Texas is amid a mental-health crisis that has far more mentally ill Texans behind bars than in hospitals or clinics. Yet prisons across the Country are making strides toward improving healthcare services. The Harris County Jail, for example, is home to the largest mental hospital in Texas. A national debate on the problem of the incarcerated mentally ill is needed. The risk that our mental health care infrastructure will remain inadequate for meeting their need for services is real. This session will explore the origin and impact of recent healthcare improvements on the incarcerated population and how we can advocate together.

Caring for the Caregiver: Are We Doing Enough?

Family members and professional caregivers are the backbone of home-based care for seniors, children with disabilities and individuals with chronic conditions. Oftentimes, family members and providers are not adequately emotionally supported through the experience of patient care. Caregiving can lead to decreased morale and lack of productivity also known as—the “second victim” phenomenon. Learn how policies like the Family Caregivers Act, social supports and digital health breakthroughs are supporting people who are ill and the people who care for them. We'll also discuss the role of employers in recruiting/training a diverse caregiving workforce, establishing comprehensive family leave policies/procedures, discuss livable wages and labor protections for caregivers.

Age Isn’t Only a Number: Ageism in the Media

The media reporting on the “silver tsunami” age wave and touting super seniors help combating ageism and create images to shift the paradigm in the media. But, the media is a passive observer and complicit with bias. For example, older adults are rarely featured in ads promoting technology or health-related news stories. In fact, older adults are often portrayed as helpless or dependent on others. The media plays a critical role in reshaping how we think about aging and fight ageism. This panel will engage members of the media, tech and healthcare in a conversation on how they can be part of the solution in addressing ageism, thwarting norms of social isolation in seniors, portraying older adults with diversity and authenticity and helping to foster and support an older workforce.

Postpartum Probability: Maternal Health Conundrum

U.S. rates of maternal mortality are the highest in the developing world and rising. Women giving birth today are more likely to die than their mothers. The data is stained by racial disparities, with Black and American Indian/Alaska Native women dying 3 times more often than white women. Our clinical and policy approach to maternity care must change to address the crisis. We must reshape financial and care delivery systems, ensure better data and advocate! Learn from models around the US anchored in the principles of racial equity/social justice, technology and holistic health promotion. This robust, interdisciplinary conversation will dive into preventing death: before, during, and after pregnancy, and throughout women’s lifespan to improve maternal health.

In Data We Trust: Hactivism and Social Services

Social services are the one of the final frontiers for healthcare data sharing. There is an overwhelming number of social service agencies and very little standardization of systems. These systems get more complicated when you look at local, State and Federal programs and cost-sharing mechanisms for enrollment and integration. This means that when someone is in crisis, they often must go through an intake process for each vertical (i.e. housing, food, mental health). A community data trust is an intermediary design to facilitate data sharing among social service agencies. In this session, we will hear from several participants in community data trusts, learn the use cases behind them and explore how emerging technologies can improve the delivery of social services.

Are We Building an Age-Friendly World?

Historically, there has been limited collaboration between the public health sector and aging fields. Currently, there is mounting pressure for public health efforts to promote health and well-being for people as they age. According to the World Health Organization, "the proportion of the global population aged 60 will double from 11% in 2006 to 22% by 2050." This demographic shift in rural areas is even more accentuated as young people migrate to the cities. This spike in life expectancy will impact the affordability and design of housing, employment opportunities, transgenerational connection and transportation options. Learn how community advocates, policymakers and tech startups are creating communities that you would want to (and can) grow old in.

Funding Social Ventures: Changing the Paradigm

Startups rely on both investors and customers for their financial health. But what happens when investors are hesitant to fund innovations because the target population is considered too small, too risky or too low on their priority list? Or when your customers can't afford innovative solutions and traditional reimbursement or business models don't apply? Learn about how States, philanthropy, health systems, entrepreneurs, investors and civic leaders are funding solutions, not just startups.

Quiet Health Risk: Loneliness in Seniors

We live in an age when we can FaceTime across the country (and globe) with a few clicks or taps on a phone screen. Despite advances in technology and the increasing connectedness it brings, research indicates we are lonelier than we have ever been. Perhaps no other age group feels the keen sting of loneliness more than seniors. Did you know the detrimental health effects of isolation is likened to those associated with smoking up to 15 cigarettes every day? As a result, socially isolated older adults are more likely to use skilled nursing home care—and cost Medicare more when they do. Learn how community volunteer programs, social media, and hospital initiatives are helping to identify and connect isolated seniors to one another, to providers and to the community at large.

Unmasking Zip Codes: Life Expectancy Reveals Truth

Mounting evidence has shown that zip codes impact our life expectancy and quality of life more than our genetic code. Gaps in life expectancy persist across many cities, towns, ZIP codes and neighborhoods and vary dramatically based on gender, race and ethnicity. For instance, transgender women of color have a life expectancy of 35 years old compared to white cisgender women's 81.3 years? This eludes that there is more correlating life expectancy than zip codes for populations more vulnerable to bias, as well as trauma and violence. Explore how life expectancy in America compares with life expectancies around the world and discuss the resources and solutions available to help everyone live a longer, healthier life.

High Touch Meets High Tech in Home Care

Technology holds a central role in expanding the market for home health care. A few decades ago, the home care industry was nonexistent. Today, home care is not only a multi-billion-industry, but one of the fastest growing sectors around the globe. Our massive aging society demands vigorous market innovation combining high-technologies with high-touch possibilities. The full potential of the technology-enabled home health care market remains to be tapped but the reimbursement models and focus on patients and families is paramount. This panel will explore how other industries have balanced technology with human interaction including human centered design and highlight the many innovations that are transforming aging and the future of care.

Beyond the Burden: Disparities in End of Life Care

From the point of view of caregiving, the burden is likely to increase in years to come because there will likely be fewer “carers” and more people dying with complex care needs. How can we examine social care at the end of life and deliver community integrated and person-care for both patients, care givers and families? How can we ensure that all people, regardless of gender, race, age, income level or languages spoken have access to quality end of life care? Physician biases, systemic barriers and patient disenfranchisement lead to inadequate pain treatment, miscommunication and cost burdens on families in their most vulnerable times.

After the Cameras Disappear: Viable Disaster Relief

How do you achieve healthy, sustainable and resilient communities after a disaster? After the devastation, there is a need to devote new resources for infrastructure rebuilding and the restoration of care delivery systems (health/social services). Natural and human-caused disasters like those in Flint, MI and Puerto Rico, impact the health and economies of communities long after the media has forgotten and stopped reporting. The impact the natural environment places higher demands on social services, impacting low-income communities the hardest.

The Pain of the Opioids Epidemic: What’s the Rx?

The opioid crisis continues to be one of the worst public health crises that the US has ever seen. Opioids are currently the main driver of drug overdose deaths. Last year, opioids were involved in over 68% of all drug overdose deaths. It’s clear that our society is light years away from developing a solution to the very complex issue of opioid use disorder. In this session, stakeholders with varying perspectives will discuss the future of opioid use in America including the rise of opioid death and addiction in children, senior and rural communities. They will focus on who is stepping up to address the opioid crisis by playing an active role in stewardship programs to prevent opioid misuse, promote appropriate use of opioids, improve patient outcomes, and reduce the misuse of opioids.

Mending the Disparity Gap in Cardiovascular Care

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, but the mortality it inflicts is not shared equally between sexes, age groups and races. African Americans experience 2-3 times the likelihood of dying from heart disease compared to whites, at any age. For decades, health disparities have been recognized as a source of pathology in cardiovascular medicine. Despite this, many advances in pharmacology and imaging have aided in the detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease. In this session, we examine whether the same forward thinking that has resulted in a decline in heart disease has impacted the pervasive disparities in cardiovascular medicine. Learn how community organizations, providers and startups are improving prevention, diagnosis and access to treatment.

Reimagining Sustenance: Food Equality for All

While most agree that access to fresh food is a human right, how do you turn a belief into reality? Technology will continue to play an increasingly critical role in how the food we eat is produced, packaged, how it is delivered, how it tastes, feels/smells and how it is reused and repurposed. Investments in health and food tech will continue to increase to help deliver on the promise of healthier, more sustainable food systems for our communities.
