From Selling Products to Selling an Integrated Care Experience - Salon CDE

The U.S. spends billions per year on prescription drugs and advanced medical procedures, and a growing number of consumers are adopting new health and wellness devices for self-care. These factors create countless opportunities for connected health solutions, but both health payors and consumers are demanding results and accountability for their investments. This panel explores this pay-for-performance environment and ways business leaders can demonstrate the positive impact of a drug or device as part of an integrated care experience. Speakers also discuss the types of partnerships and strategies that can shift the focus of drug and device makers from selling products to selling a care solution.

The world is facing a diabetes epidemic with 415 million adults worldwide living with the disease, and the costs associated with treating and managing diabetes have topped $673 billion. Decades of technology innovation, however, haven’t solved the problem. To effectively address diabetes, a shift in thinking is required. We must look beyond devices to develop holistic solutions which improve outcomes and reduce costs. A combination of technologies, big data, informatics, and world-class patient management are all required to transform diabetes care for greater freedom and better health.
