Thank you for taking the time to Converge2Xcelerate today. We thank you all and hope the experience you take away is one of value, and one you will share with others, in moving planning and initiatives forward.

The topics covered today spanned an array of themes. Moving forward, let us consider the following to delve deeper to understand:

  1. Disintermediation – the effect on clinical trials, the drug supply chain, and moving information  thru a multi-stake holder processes, in real-time, to reduce costs
  2. Concepts such as universal basic income, a one party payer system, and how the world can truly transform toward unity and equity
  3. Keeping value and benefit to patients at the core of policy and systems initiatives
  4. How will we educate patients to be better purveyors of their own health data, and partake in a new ecosystem where they become shareholders and owners
