The Center for Connected Medicine (CCM) hosted its third annual Top of Mind 2020 Summit on Dec. 4-6, 2019, at the CCM in Pittsburgh, PA. The invitation-only event convened a diverse group of leaders and innovators for three days of discussion on the challenges and opportunities in digital health.

Informed by the Top of Mind for Top Health Systems 2020 research project, the Summit examined three key areas of technology essential for the transition to value-based care:

  • Data Aggregation and Analytics
  • Patient Engagement
  • Precision Medicine

Approximately 100 executives from health systems, payers, technology firms, biotech, government, and others gathered to network, listen to keynotes and panel discussions, ask questions, and consider their priorities as they prepare for the new year.

Attendees represented Ascension, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Duke Health, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Memorial Hermann, UMass Memorial Health Care, UnitedHealthcare, UPMC, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and many more.

“Over the past three years this summit has become a special event where leaders in health care can come together and have frank discussions about the state of health care,” said Tal Heppenstall, EVP and Treasurer or UPMC, and President of UPMC Enterprises. “Our goal is to talk about what’s working, where we’re running into roadblocks, and come away with energy and optimism to continue pushing forward in the coming year.”

The 20+ page “Inside the Top of Mind 2020 Summit” eBook includes four key takeaways from the summit and summaries of several sessions. Keynote speakers from the event included:

  • Phil McKoy, Chief Information Officer of UnitedHealthcare, who discussed how his previous experience in retail applies to his work improving the consumer experience in health care.
  • Don Rucker, MD, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), Department of Health and Human Services, who updated the audience on proposed rulemaking around information blocking and improving interoperability of health care data.
