Keynote Speech


Dr. Jason Hwang discusses how we can attain affordable healthcare for everyone by applying disruptive innovation to the medical sector. For sometime now cycles of disruptive innovation have been rampant in the business world; today we see this in the form of small start-ups creating a product that enables people to do something for themselves instead of paying an “expert” to do it for them. This innovation renders larger companies who were once experts in providing that service, obsolete.

In the case of medicine, Dr. Hwang explores why disruptive technologies have been slow to reinvent healthcare and what can be done to remedy the problem. Surveying the various reasons often cited as the cause of healthcare’s woes (costly technology, insurance agencies, lawyers), he admits, “None of these reasons never really seemed right to me…There had to be something deeper and more systemic going on, and it just felt like we were misdiagnosing what was happening.”

Jason Hwang: Keynote


Dr. Jason Hwang shares how frustration in his clinical work drove him to study innovation and become one of the biggest shakers in the healthcare industry. Tired of only having a few minutes to “patch up his patients,” he was convinced that there must be a better way to deliver healthcare and give patients the attention that they truly need and deserve.

Using the lessons he’s learned from Harvard Business School legend Clayton Christensen, Dr. Hwang examines how health professionals and patients can take some tips from other industries and generate disruptive innovation to “democratize health care.”


Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


Dr. Jason Hwang shares his groundbreaking research into disruptive innovation, which has transformed many industries and can do the same for health care. He describes how new medical technologies have fueled the transition from intuitive to precision medicine, allowing previously complex disorders to be diagnosed precisely and treated with predictably effective therapies.

When these innovations are integrated into new business systems, they will spearhead vital reforms in the healthcare industry, offering solutions to the core problems currently crippling the nation′s healthcare system: skyrocketing costs and the lack of access to quality medical care.

The basic elements of Dr. Hwang′s presentations cover:

  • Description of disruptive innovation and applying the lessons of innovation from other industries to health care
  • The role of precision (aka "personalized") medicine as the technological enabler of disruption in health care
  • Business model innovation: the different types of business models and how they apply to health care
  • Analysis of the unsustainable business model of today′s hospital and what can be done
  • Analysis of the business model of the physician′s practice and the rise of retail clinics
  • Establishing a new value network in health care to disrupt the existing one, and who can lead the charge
