Kaiser, Humana, and AT&T Ramp Up Focus on Personalization of Healthcare Services and Technologies

Kaiser, Humana, and AT&T Ramp Up Focus on Personalization of Healthcare Services and TechnologiesSome of the most prominent names in healthcare and technology are escalating their attention and focus on personalization in the healthcare space.

To that end, the first day of the second-annual Connected Health Summit: Engaging Consumers concluded “with a discussion on the need for clear and innovative payment models in new connected health solutions.”

Day one was highlighted by executives from Kaiser Permanente, Humana, and AT&T delivering keynotes focusing — as a press release provided to mHealthWatch explains — “on the personalization of healthcare and its role in the Internet of Things.”

The summit continued Thursday with the theme “Business Strategies to Advance the Connected Health Market” and keynotes from CVS Health and Cerner.

“John Mattison at Kaiser started his presentation by encouraging everyone in the audience to hug, which got a lot of laughs but achieved his goal of emphasizing the importance of social health in succeeding in this market,” said Harry Wang, Director of Health and Mobile Product Research at Parks Associates. “John focused on personalization and consumer engagement, the key topics for the first day at the Connected Health Summit. Today we are hosting multiple sessions to examine the business models necessary for driving growth in this rapidly changing market.”

The Connected Health Summit, if you’re not familiar, is hosted by Parks Associates and features two days of panel discussions with over 200 executives including device makers and distributors, healthcare providers, insurance and health institutions, software and app developers, telecom and broadband service providers, technology enablers, brands and merchants, mobile infrastructure providers.

The event focuses on technology and policy advancing the consumerization of health as new entrants push market innovation and require partnerships for success.
