John Hession, Co-Chair of both the Corporate Department and the Life Science Task Force at Morse Barnes-Brown & Pendleton, PC, will be the Moderator of the prestigious Charité Entrepreneurship Summit 2016-Rethink & Transform Healthcare being held in Berlin, Germany May 26th & 27th. This is the 4th time John finds himself in this role, and he proclaims it as being one of his favorite and most rewarding “extra- curricular” activities.
Among the largest life sciences and health care industry conferences held in Western Europe each year, the Charité Summit brings together over 400 international entrepreneurs, scientists, investors and healthcare industry professionals. This year’s agenda features such diverse and relevant topics as the digitalization of health care, the prospects of genome editing, and the growing understanding of the compelling impact of gender differences on research and in the practice of medicine.
John says the role of Summit moderator is one he relishes with particular enthusiasm because it affords him the opportunity to interact with both the learned speakers and the diverse audience of life sciences and healthcare professionals. As he remarked, “The insights are scintillating and informative, the speakers animated and trenchant, and the networking before, during and after the program – in the Berlin beer halls- robust and gregarious.” Hession is the only American to repeat as Moderator in its 9 year history.

MBBP client Iora Health has announced an innovative plan to keep you out of the hospital and still make money. There’s no shortage of personal stories stating the classic case of healthcare complications and costs standing in the way of getting (and staying) healthy. The misalignment of financial incentives is a huge problem for patients, who often can’t get the care they need. Iora thinks it may be able to solve both problems and make money doing so. Its business model is meant to keep patients out of the hospital by improving service while earning a dividend on the expensive care it was able to avoid.
What’s so innovative about this? The plan offers the possibility of mass replication of quality care in a franchise-like style. Few health care innovators now expand beyond their original location, but Iora’s ultimate goal is hundreds of practices across the country, a kind of Starbucks for health care.
