About the Seminar:The healthcare landscape in the US has never been more dynamic. Between the radical changes in healthcare financing brought about by the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), ACO's and global payments, the explosion of mobile health technologies, cloud computing and big data analytics and the tidal wave of chronic disease due to demographics and lifestyle, there are unparalleled opportunities (and pitfalls) for entrepreneurs who want to impact human health.and win big.
David E. Goodman, MD, MSE, engineer, physician, and accidental entrepreneur will use his latest startup, FeetFirst, as a case study to discuss how the current healthcare landscape has influenced key decisions on the path to creating, implementing and financing this venture.
