Rady School to Host Inaugural Aging and Longevity Summit

Three-day Summit Looks to Change the Outlook of Senior Healthcare in America

SAN DIEGO, CA, July 24, 2018 – The 2018 Aging and Longevity Summit, run by Bright Lives Health Care Inc. and the University of California San Diego’s Rady School of Management, is a three-day event taking place October 3rd – October 5th in San Diego, California. During the summit, major thought leaders and stakeholders in the senior healthcare industry will discuss the current status quo, as well as the future direction of the “science of aging” in the U.S.

Currently, medical science and technology is undergoing some of the most expansive and beneficial growth in history. However, senior healthcare institutions are failing to deliver favorable outcomes to residents, families and caregivers. As the number of senior citizens in the U.S. is estimated to double in the next few decades, the prospect of providing care that is aligned with all the advances in modern medicine, technology, big data analytics and predictive models must be a top priority nationwide.  

In this summit, professionals in the field of senior healthcare will critically assess the advancements and breakthroughs in medical science and technology, integrative medicine, microbiome, big data sciences and general wellness. More specifically, the summit will address how recent developments have led to significant progress in brain science and how conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s can be treated and managed.

The purpose of these discussions is to educate key parties including medical firms, schools, senior care providers and operators, innovation and research facilities, and policy makers on how they can join this initiative and make a difference in how people age in the U.S. For insurance companies, these discussions will address how the advancements in predictive and preventative care can provide lucrative financial benefits for years to come. 

"Nowhere is research and innovation more required than in the senior healthcare sector, charged with taking care of our senior population. With advances in medical sciences, technology applications and outcome oriented healthcare systems, this summit aims to tee up key challenges and opportunities facing our industry,” said Jill Farwell, Director, Center for Executive Development at the Rady School of Management. “At the intersection of innovation and business, we are thrilled to be a part of this critical endeavor to bring together innovators, medical schools, insurance providers, owners/operators and capital providers to initiate a change in senior healthcare."

"The combined impact of changing healthcare policies, explosion of an aging population, and alternative delivery mechanisms of healthcare are driving innovation in new technologies, services, and synergies, while requiring providers and payers to develop new business models to lower costs and improve quality of services,” said Prabal Gupta, CEO and Founder of Bright Lives Health Care Inc. “In partnership with the Rady School of Management, we envisioned this healthcare summit as a platform for industry leaders to come and build framework for new solutions that are urgently needed to serve all stakeholders; senior populations, owner and operators, payers and investors."

The 2018 Aging and Longevity Summit will include a number of keynote speakers from prestigious institutions including Oliver Wyman Health & Sciences, Domain Ventures, Cambia Health, Active Senior Living, Silverado, UC San Diego, Bright Lives Health Care Inc., and more.  For more information, visit https://rady.ucsd.edu/programs/executive-education/corporate/senior-healthcare-summit/.
