Part 1: Future Trends in Health Technology: 8:00 AM – 9:25 AM
Part 2: Future Trends with Digital Therapeutics: 9:45 AM – 11:15 AM

AMCP is proud to once again offer an innovative education opportunity that mixes short, focused presentations with interactive panel discussions. For AMCP Nexus 2019, this program will focus on health information technology and digital therapeutics.

It’s no secret that the role of information technology continues to evolve and become increasingly sophisticated. Today, health professionals have access to unprecedented data and can use this information to impact patient outcomes. Digital therapeutics are a new and exciting way to use technology to further engage patients in their treatment and help the medical team support their care. To help payers understand how technology and digital therapeutics are being used and what the future may look like, please join us for this interactive, engaging discussion.

During this session, participants will hear from industry leaders who are using information, technology and digital therapeutics to engage patients, improve outcomes and support value-based care. You will hear real-life examples of what these leaders are doing. What has worked. What hasn’t worked. What outcomes are they seeing. Come find out!

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify at least two applications of health technology that may benefit payers.
