What may initially seem to be a paradox, there is a natural link between the future of precision medicine and population management. For the alignment to be successful, there are some key questions to be answered and diseases to be explored. This panel will discuss the latest plays to bridge the gaps and debate the most essential steps for streamlining the right care to the right populations, and ultimately to the right patient.

The orthopaedic field has taken a leading role in making value-based care work for all stakeholders. Technologies like surgical planning software, implant sensors, and robotics are being developed to tailor treatments for patients to improve outcomes and lower costs. Experts on this panel will discuss the status of these technologies and the latest market strategies to scale these precision-based approaches.

Patients might be a little surprised to learn how little physicians and scientists know how drugs work, let alone whether they will work or not work for certain patients. For many neurological diseases, for example, physicians have little choice but to use trial and error until the patient reports improvement. Pharmacogenomics is changing this as we speak. Experts on this panel will discuss the tremendous strides in using genomics to predict how patients will respond to medications. They will also attempt to answer the inevitable question: who is going to pay for it?

It’s impossible to discuss genomics and precision medicine without discussing ethics. Experts will facilitate an exchange of ideas between all attendees regarding the ethics of Genetic Engineering, Direct-to-Consumer genetic information, and the privacy of data at the clinical and consumer level.

For many, the concept of neuromodulation (one example being Deep Brain Stimulation), seems to be a one-size-fits-all approach for diseases like Parkinson’s, chronic pain, depression, and stroke. While the field is still growing, many are looking at the ways to predict patient responses to the use of electrodes. This panel will look at the opportunities to target populations and precisely alter individual therapies to garner the best outcomes, and how these tactics can build upon the DBS market’s ever-growing momentum.

We are already navigating a sea of big data. Yet, if researchers get their wish of sequencing a million genomes in the next few years, one thing is clear: we’re going to need a bigger boat. Panelists will discuss the latest in cloud computing and analytics, and what it will take to activate this trove of information.

Is gene therapy making a comeback? How is RNA interference transforming medicine? Will we really be editing genes? These seemingly science-fiction approaches are already being used to treat diseases. Experts on this panel will look at the tremendous business opportunities and ethics surrounding CRISPR and Gene Therapy, while also looking at what these new powers could mean for humanity.

In this session, Dr. Tom Frazier of Autism Speaks will give a glimpse at the latest discoveries and innovation opportunities in our quest to better understand autism. Frazier will pull back the curtain on his personal journey as an autism parent and his family’s experience with genetic counseling.
Keynote: Tom Frazier, PhD, CSO, Autism Speaks
Guest: Allison Schreiber, Genetic Counselor, Cleveland Clinic
Patients are used to being on the sidelines when it comes to medical innovation. Yet, if precision medicine can truly take hold, the patient’s stories, needs, and expectations can no longer be overlooked. Panelists will discuss the trends for including patients and advocacy groups in the innovation process, the policies needed to protect their privacy, and technology’s role in delivering targeted, compassionate care.

Genomics expert J. Craig Venter doesn’t mind scaring people by giving alarming statistics on death.
Forty percent of men and 24 percent of women between the ages of 50 to 74 years old in the United States will not reach the age of 75. A third will die of cardiovascular disease and another third from cancer, Venter said Monday at the Medical Innovation Summit.
Augmented reality goggles that allow surgeons to see a 3-D image of their patient's organs will soon be used. And, physicians will use a medical device similar to a GPS to navigate surgical tools through a patient's circulatory system.
