How Improved Health and Longer Lives Drive Global Prosperity

Improvements in health that have given us longer, more productive lives are also responsible for as much as half of the world economy's expansion over the last two centuries. The savings that come with earlier detection and prevention of disease, more effective therapies and diagnostics and more efficient delivery of care pay large social and economic dividends. This panel will explore innovations in public health, research and medical care that are improving our productivity and economic outlook as well as our vitality. Among the topics our experts will address: reducing the time and cost of developing treatments, increasing transparency in the quality and price of health services and making best use of big data and new technology to improve decision-making.
