Estimated reading time: 1-3 minutes

CEOs of Philips, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Amazon Web Services in virtual HLTH session on democratizing and orchestrating world-class care through digital health ecosystems

While the world continues to battle COVID-19, the fundamental challenges of healthcare have not gone away. Philips CEO Frans van Houten joins Dr. Laurie H. Glimcher, President and CEO of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services, in a virtual session (October 12, 11:09 - 11:41am ET) on the opening day of HLTH 2020 to discuss an ecosystem approach to healthcare transformation that brings together world-class clinical expertise and health technology.


Building on key learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the questions they will address include how to increase healthcare system productivity when human resources and budgets are stretched; how to speed up diagnosis and meet demand for acute and elective care; and how to improve staff safety and patient engagement. Also how to do things at scale, so that every care provider can benefit from best practices and world-class clinical knowledge. 


Watch the virtual session at 11:09 ET on October 12 via the HLTH platform.
