Retailers are entering the world of healthcare in unorthodox ways; in one of the more prominent market shifts, we have seen a growing interest in consolidation between retail pharmacies and health plans. At the same time, Silicon Valley technology companies are looking to bring disruptive approaches to critical aspects of healthcare delivery.

How will all of these market changes impact biopharma innovators and patients? Come and hear from a range of experts about what’s triggering these market shifts, how they could affect care delivery, and what the future of healthcare may look like.
