“The Rise of the Patient and Importance of Patient Engagement”
Brian Holzer MD, CEO of Lacuna Health, will discuss the rationale for Lacuna’s creation out of Kindred Innovations and why the organization selected Louisville over other markets. He will explore the shortfalls of the home health model, with particular attention to high rates of returning ED visits as a result of 45 day coverage limits. Discussion will include possible solutions in the landscape, such as: healthcare point solutions vs a platform for care and the aggregation of channels (transportation, pharmacy, access to care, etc.) to fill the gaps in the healthcare ecosystem.
“Digital Health Technologies to Help Seniors Thrive”
David Rhew MD, CMO of Samsung, will talk about the revolutionary role of digital technologies in improving the functional status of seniors with disabilities, helping seniors to stay healthy, function independently and live with purpose.

“Community, Connection, and the Economics of Population Health”
Theo Edmonds (Chief Imaginator & Co-founder, IDEAS xLab) and Ben Reno-Weber (Chief Storyteller, MobileServe) will investigate how approaching health from a systems or population perspective makes sense financially. They will delve into the idea of fundamentally altering health outcomes through a community perspective that considers characteristics outside of symptoms, such as the assessment of social determinants. In addition, they will examine Louisville’s unique selling opportunity as America’s learning lab in the aging care space, and methods to get where we want to be.
“Becoming an Epicenter: Walking the Innovation Talk”
Busy Burr, Vice President of Healthcare Innovation and Trend, at Humana will outline how Louisville is rapidly becoming the epicenter of talent, innovation and progress in the care of America’s aging population. She will spark a conversation about how we can continue to drive progress, impact health and reduce the costs of healthcare. Hint – it means we need to reimagine and implement new ways of working. Busy believes that progress happens when bold ambition meets practical action. She will share lessons learned from leading innovation in industries as varied as finance and retail fashion, and from more than two decades living and working in the heart of Silicon Valley.
