Explore the challenges and opportunities that increased longevity poses – and form new partnerships that will drive disruptive and lasting change.
The University of Rochester, in collaboration with West Health, is hosting the third annual d.health Summit, a national forum for health and technology leaders, entrepreneurs, senior care advocates and policymakers to exchange ideas, create new relationships, and foster disruptive technological and process innovations to improve the lives of the nation’s aging population.
The 2016 Primary and Presidential campaigns largely ignored an issue paramount to a growing segment of our population.
Nearly 90% of Americans prefer to age at home, yet barriers, such as antiquated reimbursement and licensing policies, prevent Americans from realizing this goal. To address this political “blind spot,” the Summit assembled health, technology, finance and policy leaders to discuss today’s best ideas, form tomorrow’s partnerships, and launch the care models of the future. The d.health 2016 Policy Report provides policy recommendations based on what was an exciting day of discussion and collaborative thinking.
