Questrom’s Fifth Annual Health & Life Sciences Conference:

Empowering Patients | Embracing Health

Friday, October 27, 2017 at the Boston University Questrom School of Business

For the past century, the primary focus of the healthcare industry has been to identify, manage, and treat leading causes of death. As we embark on new challenges in healthcare, it is time for a cognitive shift. All aspects of the industry must focus on strategies that empower patients to embrace their own health. The 5th annual Health and Life Sciences Conference’s industry thought leaders and panelists discussed how collective actions will explore opportunities and trends to propel this message.

The 2017 conference had keynote speakers discuss the importance of empowering patients and panels discussing the importance of the patient perspective in all aspects of the health sector from pharmaceuticals, medical devices, payors, policy, and healthcare delivery.
