The 2017 Wharton Health Care Business Conference (WHCBC) is coming up and we would love to see you there!
This year's conference, Breaking Boundaries: Redefining Collaboration and Competition in an Evolving Market - to be held February 9-10, 2017 at the Union League of Philadelphia - will focus on how companies are balancing the tension between collaboration and competition while breaking down the traditional boundaries that have defined the industry.
As the transition to value-based care and the scrutiny of health care costs continues, both start-ups and industry giants alike are seeking novel ways to stake their claim in an evolving market. In some cases, increased collaboration is required to share resources or fund development. In other cases, innovative business models are increasingly at odds with traditional sector lines. Specifically, the conference will ask:
- Should you specialize and partner, or acquire and grow?
- Should you bolster your core operations, or extend your reach and compete?
Bringing together over 500 industry leaders annually, the WHCBC offers participants unparalleled access to distinguished speakers and networking opportunities with individuals from across the payer, provider, life sciences, healthcare services, healthcare finance and digital health landscapes.
