HLTH 2022 - Day 1

Hlth 2022 Day 1

The first full day of HLTH will kick off with a fireside chat with Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian on the highly buzzy topic of “Why Healthcare Needs Big Tech”. From there, your correspondent will be picking out the sessions in each track with the most relevance to our pharma-focused readers.

That includes news presentations by Sandoz and Highmark; a panel discussion on “Is Cost Effective Pharmaceutical Innovation a Pipe Dream?”; a sitdown with the CEO of Walgreens, Rosalind "Roz" Brewer; and a digital therapeutics panel featuring Sharecare, Teva Pharmaeuticals, and friend-of-the-publication Jennifer Goldsack of the Digital Medicine Society (you can hear her on our podcast here).

The day wraps up with a conversation with celebrated cyclist, cancer survivor, and now healthcare investor Lance Armstrong. Check back here for updates from these sessions and more.
