Med Tech x Health Equity Panel

September 15 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Join Accenture, Becton Dickinson, Johnson & Johnson, Philips and MATTER to explore how med tech can help address health inequities.

This event is a continuation from Accenture and MATTER’s previous event, Digital Health x Health Equity Panel: Reinvent a More Equitable Future

While we know that social determinants of health account for 80 percent of an individual’s health, actually addressing these factors can be challenging in practice. Accenture’s recent report, U.S. Health Inequity: Beyond the Statistics, identified bias in data and algorithms, inclusive product and service design and sustainable structural change as the three core areas to focus on when developing med tech solutions to improve health and healthcare delivery.

Join panelists Oliver Richards, managing director for medical device and life sciences strategy at Accenture, Fido Willybiro, senior marketing director at Becton Dickinson, Jacqueline Roche, head of payment and delivery and global policy institute at Johnson & Johnson, and Nick Wilson, business lead for remote patient monitoring at Philips, for a discussion moderated by Laura Westercamp, managing director of Accenture’s life sciences and med tech practice. They’ll take a deep dive into how we can leverage med tech to improve health outcomes, reduce inequities and create a more equitable world.
