Sum(mit)ing it up

Last week, hosted the 11th annual Rock Health Summit for a day of insightful content and community connection. Session topics ranged from the future of primary care for all, to equity-centered design, to the importance of building toward better outcomes for broad and diverse populations. There was lots of discussion on how the industry can show up for underfunded and underrepresented digital health founders to ensure that healthcare innovations work for everyone. The day wrapped with observations about how markedly different the market environment is today compared to the time of last year’s Summit. While acknowledging challenges, speakers talked about the opportunities available when innovators focus on fundamentals and create differentiated value. Coupled with a call to action for healthcare innovators to create system-level change by prioritizing whole person care and lived experiences, we walked away from the day feeling more inspired than ever to make healthcare massively better.
