Business and Cloud Technology Leaders Convene to Address the Cure for Enterprise Healthcare
SAN FRANCISCO – May 22, 2014 – More than 150 U.S. business leaders will gather in New York City on June 10 at the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud Summit to discuss transforming healthcare from an uncontrolled business cost to a business advantage.
Healthcare spending has become a strategic agenda item for large American companies. The Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud Summit is an invitation-only, executive forum addressing how industry leaders embrace new strategies and technologies to manage healthcare investments and improve healthcare outcomes at the same time.
Keynote addresses include remarks from Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media; a discussion with Earvin “Magic” Johnson; and a perspective by a recognized world leader. Summit speakers include experts from Aon Hewitt, Cleveland Clinic, Comcast, Consumer Reports, McKinsey & Company, and WellPoint.
“Thanks to extraordinary advances coming in both medical technology and delivery systems, we have the opportunity to transform healthcare from a cost liability to one of the greatest growth industries ever where we realize the seeming utopia of better treatments, better diagnostic equipment and more patient control at less cost,” said Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media. “Wise businesses will want to be at the forefront of this stunning transformation.”
“We believe that great healthcare builds great business – which is good for American employers, their employees and families, and the U.S. economy,” said Giovanni Colella, M.D., co-founder and CEO of Castlight Health®. “We are convening the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud Summit because, simply put, enterprise healthcare isn’t going to fix itself. We aim to catalyze progress toward a merit-based healthcare market in which employers, employees and their families make informed choices with a clear understanding of their costs and likely outcomes.”
