The second Fortune Brainstorm HEALTH conference was held May 2-3, 2017 in San Diego. We again convened a powerful new community of leaders at the forefront of the revolution that is underway in 21 st century healthcare.

At our inaugural Brainstorm HEALTH conference, we focused on the best and brightest ideas in the digital health care revolution. In May, we tackled how to speed up this disruption and seize the benefits now. We’ll dive deeper into what’s working, what’s not—and why? And we drilled down into some of the most urgent questions in this domain: How do we get investment into the right areas quickly—and overcome the barriers that stand in the way of progress. Our theme for our second Brainstorm HEALTH event says it all: “Accelerating the Health Revolution.” And yes, we did just that.

Confirmed 2017 speakers included Joseph R. Biden, Jr., 47th Vice President, United States, CEOs Chip Bergh of Levi Strauss & Co. Mark Bertolini of Aetna, Tom Hayes of Tyson Foods, Arianna Huffington of Thrive Global, John Mackey of Whole Foods, Mike McNamara of Flex, Denise Morrison of Campbell Soup, and Timothy Wentworth of Express Scripts, as well as Duke University Surgical Oncologist (and Time 100 honoree) Dr. Shelley Hwang, Tempus Co-founder and Chair Eric Lefkofsky, Stanford University School of Medicine Dean Dr. Lloyd Minor, Venrock Partner Dr. Bryan Roberts, and Human Longevity Co-founder and Executive Chair Dr. J. Craig Venter. They were joined by our co-chairs—Fortune Editor-in-Chief Clifton Leaf, Time Executive Editor Siobhan O’Connor and Dr. David Agus, one of the world’s most influential physicians.

Fortune Brainstorm HEALTH, in association with IBM Watson Health, gathers not only C-suite leaders of top companies, hospitals, insurers, and cutting-edge pharma and biotech companies, but also titans of venture capital, tech and telecom, and other industries, all of who are rapidly changing the face of health care.  The forum covered four pillars—personal wellness, intervention, research, and the value chain. Our aim is not only to push some boundaries in each of these areas, but also to show how businesses, both established and new, can lead the way. And, yes, as with all of our Brainstorm events, Fortune will disseminate these ideas on our website, in the magazine, on social media, and beyond. Select full sessions from the 2016 conference are available on demand on our Fortune Magazine YouTube channel.
