Dr. Stephen K. Klasko, dean and CEO of USF Health, caught up for coffee this week in preparation for a panel we’re collaborating on at MediFuture 2023.
That’s the highly anticipated half-day conference in Tampa on May 13 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel.
The conference aims to explore “how Tampa Bay’s extraordinary individuals, companies and institutions are uniquely positioned to emerge as the epicenter of health care industry transformation,” the event website reads.
The aim of the discourse is to “shape this transformation by envisioning the radically changed, patient-centered health care system of the future. One that delivers higher levels of care and access at lower cost.”
New York Times best-selling author Clayton Christensen is set to give a keynote talk on disruptive health care innovation.
“We’ll learn from his insights, discuss our region’s unique advantages and discover how together, we can transform the health care we know into the health care we imagine,” according to the event website.
I will moderate a panel titled “Researching and Developing the Technologies of Tomorrow,” that features Dr. William S. Dalton, founder and CEO of M2Gen, and Leonard Polizzotto, vice president of Draper Laboratory.
Tampa Bay Business Journal Deputy Editor Chris Wilkerson will moderate a panel called “Practicing Tomorrow’s Healthcare Today – How to Survive in the Disruptive Environment,” that is slated to feature Patrick Geraghty, CEO of Florida Blue and Stephen R. Mason, president and CEO of BayCare Health System.
