As we prepare for and live longer lives, health and wellness are shifting from the sole province of the doctor’s office to that of an entire ecosystem of services, products and supports that empower us to live our added years on our own terms. Entire new industries and a whole new set of players are being brought to the table. Some are around the traditional treatment paradigms for the diseases of aging – cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes – but also the conditions of aging – skin, vision – that deteriorate as we age and have an adverse impact on our functional ability. In this session, leaders in innovation from across the healthcare ecosystem share how they are helping us live better as we live longer.
