Partner Domenick Bertelli recently spoke on a panel at the MIT Sloan: Designing for Health Conference. The panel “How Can We Transform Health with Precision Health”, was moderated by Robert C. Green, MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine (Genetics), Harvard Medical School, and Director, Genomes2People Research Program, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Broad Institute.
The panel discussion focused on developing the evidence and tools for using personalized data to impact health outcomes and how the work of healthcare can support or inhibit use of data in patient care and population health. In addition to Domenick, Ernst Berndt, Professor of Applied Economics, MIT Sloan School of Management was on the panel.
The conference brought together practitioners, government and industry leaders with MIT faculty, students and alumni to highlight applied academic research, industry innovations and policy perspectives on leveraging analytics for a proactive health system. The conference panels explored:
- How to better quantify effects of social determinants of health on outcomes and costs
- How analytics, technology, workforce and process innovation apply to designing and assessing proactive interventions in health systems
- Policies needed to enable proactive systemic interventions with analytics-based evidence
- How ecosystem collaborations can accelerate innovation towards proactive health system
