The Center for Health Care Market Innovation (CHMI) at Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management is co-sponsoring the Third Annual Health:Further Festival Aug. 22-25.

Events are being held at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Aug. 22 and at the Music City Center Aug. 23-25.

With more than 140 speakers, multiple networking sessions, live musical performances and a pitch competition, the Health:Further event spans industries and ideologies to find new ways to create the future of health.

The mission of Health:Further and the festival align well with CHMI, which conducts research on the changing demands for health care and models to address shifting consumer needs.

“The future of healthcare will be determined by consumer choice, not Washington policy,” said Larry Van Horn, associate professor of management and executive director of Health Affairs for the Owen School. Van Horn, who will be speaking at the Health:Further conference, is co-founder and co-director of the CHMI.

“We need to understand the new customer in health care and leverage lessons from industries which have been successful,” he said. “The Consumer Summit at Health:Further advances this conversation.”

This year’s event speakers include Jeff Arnold, chairman and CEO of Sharecare Inc.; Dr. Mehmet Oz, co-founder of Sharecare; Seema Verma, administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services; Greg Glassman, founder and chairman of Crossfit; Charles Martin, chairman of Martin Ventures; Jerry Inzerillo, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide; Dominique Wilkins, NBA hall-of-famer and vice president of basketball for the Atlanta Hawks; Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skater and founder/CEO of Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation; Mark Harris (BS’03, PhD’09, MBA’11), founder and CIO of Concert Genetics; and Dr. Kevin Johnson, Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor and chair of Vanderbilt’s department of biomedical infomatics.
