The Summit audience is comprised of leading healthcare executives, physicians, entrepreneurs, policymakers and technology pioneers.

Panel Session (1:20 – 2:20 p.m. EST)
Paying for Health: A Case Study in How North Carolina is investing in Social Determinants of Health (to Lower Costs and Improve Outcomes).”

Moderated by Chief Strategy Officer Tim Lash, West Health is hosting a 60-minute panel session, “Paying for Health: A Case Study in How North Carolina is Investing in Social Determinants of Health (to Lower Costs and Improve Outcomes).” The lively panel discussion will use North Carolina as an innovative case study with the goal as paying for health—not healthcare, and how the state is approaching social determinants of health such as access to food, housing and transportation and their impact as the main drivers of health outcomes.
