Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Prashant Yadav, director of the healthcare research initiative at the William Davidson Institute, moderated the panel discussion, “Altering the Future of Well-being, ” Sept. 30 at the World Summit on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in New York City.

Made up of six experts in the field of healthcare — Anita Goel of Nanobiosym, Jody Holtzman of AARP, Michael J. Thali of the University of Zurich, Jessica Greenwalt of Crowdmed, Michael Dulin of the Carolinas Healthcare System, and Cory Countryman of the Walnut Hill Medical Center — the panel will discussed the question: “Is the future of health beyond our capacity?”

The summit addressed the problem enterprises often face in finding a strategic balance among creativity, mobility, and livability — what the summit’s organizers call the “Innovation Trilemma.” They seek to create experiences that link the stories of panelists together to generate a chain reaction of powerful ideas and innovations to solve that trilemma.

The three-day summit confronted the question of how business can remain creative and profitable by exploring creative capacities, design programs, collaborative models, digital approaches and social-led thinking. It also explored how business can improve digital life by delivering mobile tech, Internet of everything devices, big analytics, and smart machines and systems. Last, it identified how business can shape products and spaces in a way that is environmentally sustainable, socially inclusive, and authentically creative.

The World Summit on Innovation and Leadership had an impressive list of 75 presenters, including the Chief Technical and Innovation Officer, and Chief Architect of Innovation for Coca-Cola; the Co-Founder of Coursera; the Director of Media, Technology, and Peacebuilding at the United States Institute of Peace; the President and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; the Innovation and Integration Lead at NASA; and the Senior Advisor at The Walt Disney Company.
