hc1 and Becker’s Healthcare have partnered to bring together leaders in precision medicine for a free, two-day, special virtual event on November 17-18. The Precision Health Virtual Summit will focus on the changes our care delivery system needs as it transitions from fee-for-service to value-based care reimbursement models. Plus, public health leaders will share how the pandemic, as well as political and civil unrest, are impacting healthcare today for patients, providers, payors, and employers.

Every patient down to their very own genetic makeup is unique. So why are we still treating everyone the same? The one-size-fits-all, trial-and-error healthcare model results in missed diagnoses, protracted illnesses, and even premature death.This outmoded approach also wastes $765 billion annually.

The answer to the problem – Precision Healthcare. When we start treating patients as individuals we deliver improved care and financial performance together. We’re bringing together leaders in the field of precision health to share how they’re solving precision health without budget-busting investments.
