As a provider, patient and analyst, Dr. Bonnie Feldman has interviewed about 100 companies to uncover which suite of new digital tools will help patients on their journey to better outcomes.

Based on her research, she will give an overview of the emerging ecosystem of new companies in the mobile/social/data arena, across the disease spectrum from fitness and wellness to chronic disease.
As part of the story, she will weave highlights of the latest discoveries in behavioral economics, motivation, brain plasticity, habit design, and wellbeing that power these innovations.

She will then present 3 panelists who will provide a patient story (their own or others) and/or statistics, as well as their professional expertise relative to what they have tried, what works and what doesn’t.
