Pioneering Health Optimization in a Land of Sickcare
In his keynote address, Mr. Margolis will discuss how he is systematically working to transform the healthcare industry from one of “sickcare” to one of optimized health. The session will include a discussion on the differences between patients and consumers, the need to align individual actions and behaviors with incentives and rewards to drive greater healthcare value, and the emergence of the new consumer health “supply chain”.
