"The Frost & Sullivan Executive MindXchange is one of the most uniquely designed and well thought out programs I have attended," said ConvaTec Global Government Affairs and Health Policy Vice President, Joseph Rolley. "The learning comes not just in the form of traditional lectures, but from audience participation and sharing of ideas and experiences."
The high-level program will be beneficial to senior-level executives, particularly those in C-level and vice president positions involved with; business development, government affairs & reimbursement, intellectual property, medical affairs, marketing, healthcare strategy, product development, QA, sales, strategic planning, technology assessment and commercialization, amongst others.
The influential keynote speakers at this event include:
Jim Hollingshead, Chief Strategy Officer and President of the Ventures and Initiatives Strategic Business Unit at ResMed, who will speak on mapping success in an outcomes-driven healthcare environment. The key takeaways provide insights into how outcomes-driven medicine influences go-to-market strategy for medical devices, leveraging medical research to inform and reset payer agendas, and creating compliance systems to align with personalized medicine.
Megan Moynahan, Assistant Director for Technology and Innovation from the Office of the Center Director at the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, (FDA) will address if the FDA can spur innovation. As stated by Moynahan, to handle truly innovative products against the vast tide of typical products it regulates, the FDA needs to cultivate both an "innovation mindset" and a "production mindset" – two opposing internal cultures that give rise to different processes and practices. The opposing cultures of "production" and "innovation" can co-exist in an organization, but only a thriving culture of innovation at the FDA will bring about the kind of transformative change needed to address long-standing trends.
Joe Kiani, Chairman and CEO at Masimo Corporation, will speak to the mounting cost pressures and rising healthcare inflation. According to Kiani, there is a recipe for "doing the right thing," which can protect patients, fuel innovation and reduce costs in our healthcare system.
Additional event highlights include "The Vino Voyage," where executive attendees will get acquainted over a wine tasting luncheon while cruising the San Diego harbor. Attendees will participate in a unique event format of two-way dialogue and debate, while taking in the breathtaking location. Just seven miles from downtown, the Hilton San Diego Hotel sits on 18 acres of recreational paradise. The hotel also boasts an award-winning executive Chef and banquet team.
