Invent Health - Future of Clinics

June 27, 2019, HP Building 5, Palo Alto, CA

Welcome to Invent Health (#inventhealth), a quarterly twilight salon-styled tech talk and mixer produced by HP and Vator, where valuable lessons and insights are shared by investors, tech pioneers and adopters. Invent Health is designed to take a 360-degree view of one particular topic.

In this case, the topic is the “The future of clinics.” The CVS / Aetna deal is one example of how local retail chains are evolving to offer more care services. Upstarts like Forward, are taking a more futuristic tech-centric view of the new clinic; Heal is bringing the doctor to your home; Crossover Health is combining medical and wellness care in the corporate setting while the Well is redefining clinics to embrace wellness and lifestyle.

In 10 years, what will the doctor's office look like? Will it be integrated with your gym? What's the role of the medical doctor? How much will they matter if people self-diagnose already, and are now seeking more guidance about nutrition, mental health, lifestyle changes? Can Heal - an Uber for doctors -- really scale?

Join HP’s Dr. Archana Dubey and Vator’s Bambi Francisco, our co-hosts for the event.

Vator (short for innovator) is a vibrant startup and investor community, founded by veteran, award-winning business journalist, Bambi Francisco.

Thanks to Mark Goldstein, Chairman of UCSF Health Hub, a non-profit that helps healthtech companies gain access to the Bay Area ecosystem.
