Learn from those at the front lines of digital health, as four panels with digital health experts from Dorsey Health Strategies, Dorsey & Whitney, and industry insiders discuss emerging business, legal, and regulatory issues in digital health.

Sessions Include:


Session I – Payers, Providers and Employers – If You Build It, Will They Come?
(8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.)

You’ve built an innovative product, service or business model certain to disrupt the world of healthcare. But have you cracked the code for selling your innovation to the right buyers? Learn from industry experts who have vetted hundreds of digital health vendors how different constituents in the industry go about screening and choosing digital health offerings.

Speakers:
Brooks Deibele, Regional Market Leader, Holmes Murphy & Associates; former President, Commercial Markets, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota
Kevin O’Leary, Head of Innovation, Allina Health
Jeff Saunders, Of Counsel, Dorsey & Whitney, Moderator


Session II – Present at a Distance: Capturing Value in Remote Patient Monitoring
(9:40 a.m. – 10:40 a.m.)

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) sits in a nebulous space: ever-present with the patient, but not quite as “present” as a virtual visit.  The market is exploding with devices, apps, and service companies.  How can providers and RPM companies be of best service to the patients and capture value as a company?  What types of partnerships should be explored, and what key liability risks should be weighed? Join us as we delve into these and other business and legal considerations.  

Speakers:
Greg Anthony, Assoc. Administrator, Mayo Clinic Center for Connected Care
Harsh Dharwad, Chief Technology Officer, Nihon Kohen America
Meghan DesLauriers, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney
Shira Hauschen, Managing Principal, Dorsey Health Strategies, Moderator


Session III – Delivering Value in Behavioral Health Through the Use of Data and Technology
(10:50 a.m. – 11:50 a.m.)

Behavioral health disorders can have a tremendous impact on people’s lives, and, in fact, are a leading cause of disability. Behavioral health has been called the greatest unaddressed problem in healthcare today. At the same time, access to behavioral health services, and societal stigma about mental health, can create significant barriers to people getting the help that they need. This session will highlight two companies, AiRCare Health and Sanvello, that have developed tools, using technology and data analytics, to create solutions.

Speakers:
Monika Roots, Chief Medical Officer, Sanvello
Jaclyn Wainwright, Chief Executive Officer, AiRCare Health
Ross D’Emanuele, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney
Alissa Smith, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney, Moderator


Session IV – Lunch and Learn: IP Protection for Digital Health Innovation 
(12:00 Noon – 1:00 p.m.)

Digital health technology has many applications from monitoring and analysis to communications and data management – and it employs almost as many types of innovation – from molecular diagnostics to artificial intelligence. Nearly all of it can be protected. But what, exactly, is protectable and how do you go about it? These are the questions we hear often. In this Lunch & Learn, we will review the different types of protection available to the digital health professional. We will also cover some of the recent changes in patent law that affect the industry.
