Virgin Pulse honored for 2018 innovation; Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rajiv Kumar joins “Platform Wars” panel on data’s critical role in delivering, measuring and increasing user engagement and business results.
October 29, 2018, Providence RI – Virgin Pulse, the world’s only digital health and wellbeing company that combines software, services, personalization and analytics to drive engagement, behavior change and outcomes across individuals and organizations, today announced that Dr. Rajiv Kumar, the company’s Chief Medical Officer and Head of the Virgin Pulse Institute, will discuss how organizations can use data and analytics to engage users in improving their health at this week’s Healthcare Revolution Conference in Orlando, FL.
The conference, focused on transforming the business of health, brings together leading employers, brokers, consultants, TPA’s and payers to discuss innovative solutions and disruptive ideas to address common problems and challenges in the industry.
Dr. Rajiv Kumar, chief medical officer and president, Virgin Pulse Institute, will join other industry leaders for the panel discussion, “Corporate Wellness and the Platform War for More Data.” The panel will highlight the critical role that data plays in delivering and measuring user engagement, and how data innovation will continue to transform health and wellbeing solutions.
“The theme of this year’s conference, ‘Healthcare is broken. It’s time to fix it,’ is not an exaggeration,” said Dr. Kumar. “One of the biggest challenges we face is how to strategically aggregate all of the disparate and fragmented data sources available in order to deliver proactive, personalized and meaningful user experiences. When done right, this can deliver real and sustained results—for the individual, the population, the business, and for the industry overall. Companies like Virgin Pulse that transform data complexity into radical simplicity for customers are catapulting the healthcare industry forward.”
As the industry pioneer, Virgin Pulse has also been nominated for Healthcare Revolution’s 2018 Innovation Award, highlighting its work with Montgomery County Government (Maryland). The award honors companies who are changing and reshaping society for the better. Montgomery County nominated Virgin Pulse for transforming the health and wellbeing of its employees, as well as its overall culture.
Both the 2018 Innovation Awards and the data panel discussion take place on Tuesday, October 30, at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. Dr. Kumar’s panel discussion begins at 2:00 ET in Room 300. Innovation Award winners will be announced at 4:00 ET.
