The third annual OnRamp Healthcare Conference will be held virtually on Thursday, August 19, 2021 and will bring together leading corporations, clinicians, investors and startups who are disrupting health care and the future of medicine. The event is presented by gener8tor, a nationally ranked accelerator and venture capital firm, in partnership with the Wisconsin Medical Society, WisMed Assure and WEA Trust.
The one-day conference will feature a keynote presentation by Erick S. Huang, MD, PhD, Chief Science & Innovation Officer from Onduo, a Verily Company, who will discuss what true accountable care means, how to bring data to life, as well as how physicians and clinicians can better leverage that data. Additionally, a special clinician panel will bring together leaders from the Wisconsin Medical Society, IV Medical Dynamics, Aether Medicine, Georgetown University, WEA Trust and Health Tradition to discuss how care team members can convert great ideas into a startup.
“The health care system has the power to reinvent our communities––through cost-saving tools for patients and providers, digital-first solutions to make systems more efficient and creative tactics for increasing access to underserved populations. OnRamp Healthcare brings together those leaders striving to change health care for the better, a unique and inspirational group of innovators with expertise across the clinical, business and financial aspects of health care,” said Nathan Acevedo, lead organizer of the OnRamp Healthcare Conference
The full conference agenda will feature speakers from leading health care agencies and investment firms covering a range of topics including:
- Healthcare Consumerism in a COVID-19 World: As the health care consumer's sentiment and behavior meaningfully shifted during the COVID-19 pandemic, key stakeholders across the health care ecosystem are asking themselves: how can we meet the new needs of the health care consumer in a post-pandemic world? Here’s how stakeholders across the ecosystem are empowering consumers to become better stewards of their care and ultimately, deliver value to the broader health care system.
- Integrating Digital Therapeutics into Care Streams: Focusing on everything you need to know related to digital therapies, leaders from the Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin health network will discuss what they look for in a digital therapy, how digital therapies are embedded in provider workflows, how their impact is measured and more.
- Selling into a Hospital System: Geared to help startups best position themselves to work with a health system, this discussion will cover best practices from two different perspectives: those of healthcare healthcare industry leaders who have experience working with startups as well as startups themselves who have found success in working with a health system.
- Racial Disparities in Healthcare: With a unique blend of perspectives from financial and educational institutions, founders and health care professionals, this panel will dive deeper into concerning racial disparities seen in health care, health equity efforts that must be taken as well as the social determinants of health.
“As health care professionals, our goal should always focus on strengthening our ability to provide high-quality care to our patients. While that remains our north star, an already changing health care environment, further fueled by the pandemic, means the time is now to take action. By bringing together some of our industry's most innovative thinkers, we're helping physicians, corporations and founders alike move the needle forward in health care,” Tim Bartholow, MD.
Unique to the OnRamp program, the conference will include a Startup Track featuring curated, one-on-one pitch sessions between startups and corporations. OnRamp will match selected startups with corporate venture capital and innovation executives to discuss potential customer relationships, strategic partnerships and, if appropriate, investment opportunities.
More than 400 one-on-one pitch meetings with 60 corporations and top-tier venture capital firms will be facilitated at the conference. Startup founders will have the opportunity to speak with investors from JP Morgan Chase and Co, Cedars Sinai Accelerator, 7wire Ventures, Sixty8 Capital, Coyote Ventures, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Boston Scientific and United Healthcare Accelerator, among others.
