HBI 2020: Lessons to learn, changes to make, opportunities to find, friendships to forge

There is light at the end of the tunnel. After a difficult year for everyone, personally and professionally, the prospect of a level of normality returning in 2021 as the first batch of vaccinations are applied to those with the greatest need, is an enticing one.

Vaccinations are only part of the solution, however. For our readers who building a health care services business, you are all part of the solution too. There is a lot of work for everyone involved in healthcare delivery – public and private – to do, increasingly together. COVID has brought many challenges, but also opportunities as operators build stronger relationship with public payors and deploy new AI and digital health solutions on a completely new scale.

Across every sector – from hospitals to labs and from nursing homes to homecare – the elite of policymakers, payors, investors, CEOs and advisors are working in tandem to construct compelling new platforms that meld together services, digital health and M&A. And all of those groups will be coming together for HBI’s 10th-anniversary conference which starts this coming Monday, December 14th, broadcast live from the usual venue, the prestigious QEII Centre in the heart of London, augmented virtually by dozens of speakers and over 700 delegates.

Whether you are most interested in M&A post-COVID, the extent to which digital platforms are impacting current health models (not least in this new climate), investment, regulation, or big-name interviews, there is plenty to catch the eye. And we’re very aware that there’s a lot of business done at our annual conference too, and our slick new app makes it simple to connect and chat to the people you most want to meet over the four-day event.
