Transforming care delivery: Is better always more expensive?

Achieving better value in healthcare delivery is a challenge faced by providers worldwide. Better value requires improved outcomes at lower cost. As healthcare systems worldwide struggle with growing demand and diminishing resources, a stronger focus on lowering costs has become an essential priority. Transforming the way care is delivered is a crucial part of this task. In this panel, three healthcare ‘disruptors’ share the approaches they used to successfully provide high-value care at scale, to succeed in challenging markets, and to respond to intensified customer demands.

Daniel Morissette serves as CFO of CommonSpirit Health, created earlier this year through the merger of Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and Dignity Health.

Expanding precision medicine: The new wonder drug?

Precision medicine is currently being implemented at centers of excellence throughout the world – paying off clinically and financially. Currently much of this work is confined to large academic centers who aggregate vast amounts of data and use it to enhance their internal processes and procedures. In order to deliver its full value, precision medicine must scale out of the academic world, and broaden its scope to treat and prevent a wider range of diseases. Efforts are needed throughout the healthcare system to allow patients to experience this change and reap its extraordinary benefits. This panel provides unique, first-hand insights on how this can be done.

High-value care: How to scale and sustain innovation in care delivery

Many healthcare organizations are able to create pockets of greatness – departments or hospitals that successfully make great leaps in quality and value through innovation. But unfortunately, much of this innovation in care delivery fails to spread and even great innovations often don’t last. Success in this effort requires a unique combination of leadership, cultural and organizational reforms, changes in individual behavior, and a fresh approach to data and data infrastructure. In this panel, four leaders will cut through the noise about innovation in healthcare and will provide real, actionable insights on how healthcare systems can scale and sustain innovations in care delivery – from the individual up to entire organizations and throughout the broader healthcare landscape.


  • Prof. David Asch, MD, MBA, ED, Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation & Professor of Medicine, Wharton School, United States
  • Rasu Shrestha, MD, MBA, EVP & CSO, Atrium Health, United States
  • Axel Heitmueller, PhD, MD, Imperial College Health Partners, United Kingdom
  • Susan DeVore, President & CEO, Premier Inc., United States


Conversation with Stephen Klasko

Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, is an advocate for transformation in healthcare and higher education. As president and CEO of Philadelphia-based Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health since 2013, he leads one of the nation’s fastest growing academic health institutions based on his vision of re-imagining the future. Jefferson Health has grown to 14 hospitals in 2018. His 2017 merger of Thomas Jefferson University with Philadelphia University created a professional university with top-20 programs in fashion, design, health, and the first design-thinking curriculum in a medical school.

In 2019, he was named the first Distinguished Fellow of the World Economic Forum for the Future of Health and Healthcare. His track record earned him a place as tied for #2 “Most Influential” individuals in healthcare by Modern Healthcare 2018, and as #21 in Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business 2018. He is an obstetrician, has been dean of two medical schools, and believes that creativity is the key skill for students in the age of augmented intelligence and robotics. This thought-provoking conversation with Stephen Klasko will explore his vision on how to shape the future of healthcare.
