    Healthcare Horizons: Addressing Disparities in Maternal Health with Dr. Sarosh Rana

    Healthcare Horizons: Addressing Disparities in Maternal Health with Dr. Sarosh Rana

    Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the number of women who died from pregnancy or a pregnancy-related cause in the United States in 2021 increased by 40 percent from 2020. The maternal mortality rate in the U.S. is now the highest since 1965, and the U.S. fares worse than any other industrialized nation. Throughout the inaugural season of Healthcare Horizons, we explore the leading causes behind this inequity and investigate innovative solutions to address maternal mortality.
    Join us as we welcome Dr. Sarosh Rana, head of maternal-fetal medicine and chief obstetrical transformation officer at UChicago Medicine. Dr. Rana discusses her efforts to address maternal mortality disparities for her patients and community, as well as UChicago Medicine’s recent “citation of merit” for its exceptional healthcare leadership.

    Rethinking How People Use Digital Health

    Rethinking How People Use Digital Health

    The healthcare industry is full of data - today, approximately 30 percent of the world's data volume is being generated by the healthcare industry. And, sharing of this data can help to improve patient care. When different organizations share data, they can work together to better understand diseases and develop more effective treatments for patients. In a study run by Accenture, 84 percent of patients who share their health data have had a positive experience sharing it, and only two percent of respondents have had a negative experience. But, most patients who do not believe they share their data today say it is because no one has asked them to share it.

    Join panelists Alex Simmonds, drug development innovation lead at Bristol Myers Squibb, Colleen D’Abbene, director of U.S. diagnostics at Alexion, Colin Gibbons, sales leader with diagnostic cardiology solutions at Philips, and McCay Barnes, senior digital health product leader at Optum for a discussion moderated by Ben Ferrara, director of growth and corporate strategy in health and life sciences at Accenture, for a deep dive into how patients feel about sharing data, what are the barriers to sharing data and potential areas ripe for innovation.

The technology’s sheer growth, in both usage and valuation, has also generated a tremendous amount of hype.
    In healthcare, the technology is already beginning to demonstrate how it can reimagine the industry in new and exciting ways. Beyond easing administrative burdens and scaling tailored patient communication, generative AI is also accelerating drug discovery and clinical trials.
    Generative AI is truly at the forefront of healthcare transformation, with its impact reverberating across healthcare systems, providers, payers and more.
    Join VSP Global Innovation Center’s Head of Emerging Technology Jay Anderson, Insight Partners Managing Director Hilary Gosher and CB Insights Lead Analyst in Healthcare IT Alex Lennox-Miller for a discussion on the future of generative AI in healthcare, moderated by MATTER CEO Steven Collens.
