INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- hc1, the leader in critical insight, analytics, and solutions for precision health that power high-value health care, announced today that Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, will be the keynote speaker during its Precision Health Virtual Summit scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 17 and Wednesday, Nov. 18. This special two-day summit hosted by hc1 in partnership with Becker's Healthcare will bring together healthcare leaders and experts to focus on the changes our care delivery system needs as it transitions from fee-for-service to value-based care reimbursement models.
Dr. Klasko is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health. His session, "Beyond Genomics and Cell Therapy," will discuss health care's transition from costly and fragmented "sick care" to affordable, personalized and preventive care.
"The Precision Health Virtual Summit is a great opportunity for healthcare leaders to discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the connected care revolution, are transforming health care today for patients, payers and employers," said Dr. Klasko. "I'm excited to be partnering with hc1 and Becker's for this event."
