The Future of Health and Medicine:

Where Can Technology Take Us?

Daniel Kraft, MD

Dr. Daniel Kraft, a Stanford and Harvard trained physician-scientist, inventor and entrepreneur, will share his clinical and biomedical perspective on technology and its future impact on health care. Daniel is the founder of IntelliMedicine focused on enabling connected, data-driven and integrated personalized health and medicine and was recognized as one of the top 50 individuals and organizations for making exceptional progress in driving resources, attention and innovation toward a better health care system

Given the demands placed on Case Management and Transitions of Care professionals practicing in various settings—who receive information from multiple sources and influence the care delivery for optimal outcomes– technology is a requisite partner. Daniel will examine the rapidly emerging, game changing and convergent technology trends, and how they are and will be leveraged to change the face of health care and the practice of medicine in the next decade.


Overcoming Injury: Lessons in Motivation from an Olympic Gold Medalist

Amy Van Dyken-Rouen

Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is a six-time Olympic Gold Medalist. The prolific U.S. swimmer competed in the 1996 and 2000 Summer Games, and is the first American woman to earn four gold medals in a single Olympics. In 2014, Amy was paralyzed from the waist down in an ATV accident. She works every day to push the physical boundaries of her “new normal,” and encourages others to push through obstacles in their own lives to achieve their goals. Amy’s positive attitude and determination is motivational and her strategies for personal growth and happiness are inspirational.



Collaboration: The Art of a Common Cause

Eric Whitacre

Grammy-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre will discuss his success in bringing together a user-generated choir with singers from around the world. With their common love of music, they overcame technological, personal and access barriers to achieve a synchronized Virtual Choir. From the first choir of 185 singers to more than 8,400 contributors from 101 countries to his most recent Virtual Choir 4, Eric will share his story of believing in something that had not been done and using the spirit of collaboration around a common cause–the love of music–to achieve it.

Eric is a Juilliard School of Music graduate and has spoken for Apple, Google, the United Nations and is a repeat TED speaker. More than a message, Eric will close our conference with a performance!
