Across Health went first to the heart of Healthcare Disruption in later 2015, and returned again in 2017.

We have been to Silicon Valley, San Francisco, New York and San Diego – and have left every city amazed by what is happening, and what it will mean. The excitement, ideas and innovation have left us scared about what is coming next – but every time, excited to find out more.

… and we’re going to do it again! Join us, and be part of the journey in 2018.

BE IMMERSED IN IDEAS THAT WILL CHANGE THE INDUSTRY

We want you to understand what exactly is happening, and to understand why it is happening there. Who are the players, what are they doing, and how do they think?

We want you to feel the power of disruptive thinking.

Our unique 5-day Tour will take you to the key hubs of healthcare disruption – areas that hot-house the most competitive business environments on the planet.

Think that all start-ups on the East and West coast are tech companies? Think again.
They are now transport, communication or health companies – using new technology to eat the incumbents and disrupt entire industries. These hotbeds of innovation are rife with pioneers that aim to shake up the world of healthcare and medicine.

 

An intense experience, taking you to the heart of the most competitive business centres in the world. We will visit companies with new structures, ways of working and cultures – allowing you to see how the competitors of the future think. Get acquainted with like-minded peers, and take insights from expert tour guides. All of this will give you a solid framework to assess future trends in healthcare – and of the threats and opportunities they pose for your business.

We will visit established players, as well as exciting new healthcare startups and industry disruptors, have input from leading experts and visionaries in their fields, and try to understand the strategies for incumbents in the healthcare space.

We are building the programme for 2018 – and it will include companies at the intersection of technology and healthcare.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON A TOUR DAY

Guided ‘bus’ tour – visiting 3-4 centres of excellence per day

Each ‘bus stop’ innovation company meeting will last approx. 1-2 hours:

      • Mix of presentation and discussion
      • Current and future trends driving their specialty area
      • The inspiration behind their core offering/innovation, how they ‘broke through’
      • How they structured internally and networked externally to embrace innovation
      • Future challenges they see in healthcare disruption

Option to stay on for further discussion and ‘catch up the bus’

Back to hotel, share experiences and discuss the innovative day over group dinner

A typical tour day

We hope that you will have a marvelously inspiring and fun week. We are looking forward to visiting these electrifying companies and experiencing this new frontier firsthand. But above all, we are eager to share the sheer brute force and excitement of disruption with a fantastic group of people. May you get a lot of disruptive goose-bumps this week!
