Key questions we will be asking:

  • Does innovation help us bend the cost curve in our healthcare system?
  • How do we more effectively use the unprecidented amount of data generated by both health practioners and – increasingly – patients?
  • How do we reconcile the need for further innovation in the pharmaceutical sector with the pressing need to cut costs?
  • How should governments define healthy eating?
