McKesson Ventures Vice President & Partner Carrie Williams spoke at the Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit, East Coast, which took place June 6 and 7, 2023, in Boston.

Williams participated in a panel discussion titled “Beyond the Clinic: Digital & Home-Based Models to Close Gaps, Improve Outcomes & Delight consumers.” Innovations in digital healthcare are creating unprecedented opportunities to improve the business of healthcare while also increasing consumer satisfaction and quality of care. The roundtable discussion addressed questions like:

  • What are examples of innovations in home-based digital care that have potential to improve consumers’ future?
  • What are the key strategic considerations as we anticipate the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency?
  • How are health plans and “payviders” ensuring continuity of care?
  • How can hybrid care programs hurt your health equity program, and how can they help?

The panel was moderated by Christopher Booker, Partner, First Cressey Ventures. The other panelists were Joe Kimura, CMO, Somatus; Tom Olenzak, Managing Director, Cigna Ventures; and Pippa Shulman, DO, CMO, Medically Home.

The speakers draw from their own experiences to share content that will benefit the rest of the audience.
