Summit Highlights

"Health Redefined: Breaking Boundaries to Build a Better Way" was the focus of the sixth annual Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit, taking place November 5 – 7 in Dallas. The event convened an exclusive group of industry leaders for in-depth exploration of the redefinition of healthcare.

The Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit – an invitation-only event for senior-level executives – challenges age-old assumptions in healthcare and provides attendees with actionable insight on how to build a better way.

Health Redefined: Breaking Boundaries to Build a Better Way

Together, we examined the inner workings of today’s in-flux industry and redefined its inevitable and subsequent trajectory. We discussed well beyond tackling the traditional set of questions to think holistically, creatively, and openly about the market’s greater potential.

Together we:

Challenged traditional assumptions to reevaluate healthcare’s status quo.

Reconsidered and reinvented what it really means to become a health enterprise through discussions that extend well beyond basic notions of care quality and delivery.

Better understand and are better prepared for tomorrow's uncertainty – whether you're a patient, provider, payer, physician, leader, influencer, or anywhere in between.  

Because when it comes to healthcare, we’re all in this together.

Here's what you can expect at the Health Innovation Summit


Executive Sessions


Immersion Tours

Attendees will explore how Dallas area’s most innovative organizations are transforming the health market through on-site, interactive tours.

Experiential Exhibit

What if your doctor understood your eating habits as well as Netflix understood your viewing habits? What if lab tests were delivered on your timeline, as conveniently as Uber Eats delivers your dinner? What if, in a crisis, the emergency room came to you? Control, convenience, and connectivity abound across industries. What would that look and feel like in healthcare?

Find out in the #HealthEverywhere experience, where you will see how we are transforming care to be 360, anytime, anywhere.

Thrive Global Insights Lounge

Oliver Wyman and Thrive Global are partnering to double down on an idea we’re particularly excited about: taking a more holistic approach to health. Over the course of the Summit, Thrive Global’s Agapi Stassinopoulos will be conducting real-time interviews with today’s healthcare leaders who will share their strategies and tools that help them thrive, along with their perspective on the challenges our industry faces particularly in terms of prioritizing well-being.
