Innovators and providers/payers talk about new technologies and frameworks being adopted that drive consumers toward healthy habits. At #splashxinventhealth Vitality: Lifestyle as a Drug we discussed what are some success stories? What are the challenges to behavior modification when often there is no immediate evidence of the benefits? Are data helping payers evaluate risk and liability as they consider new practices and technologies?

Archana Dubey (Global Medical Director, HP) and  Frances A. Ayalasomayajula (Senior Manager, Worldwide Healthcare, HP) moderated the discussion. Panelists are Esther Dyson (Executive Founder, Wellville; Angel investor), Hemalee Patel (Lifestyle Medicine Physician, Crossover Health / Facebook), Munjal Shah(CEO & Co-founder, Health IQ), David Utley (President & CEO, Carrot), Seth Serxner (Chief Health Officer and Senior Vice President of Population Health, UnitedHealthcare Optum), Pankaj Vij (Kaiser Lifestyle Medicine, President - American College of Lifestyle Medicine), Daniel Chao (CEO, Halo Neuroscience)
