Thrive at ViVE!

Have you caught your breath since last year’s inaugural ViVE Conference? Are you ready for another jam-packed four days of inspiring conversation around healthcare transformation?

At Carium, we’re not just rested and ready—we are VERY prepared. We’ve mapped out a plan for making the most of everything ViVE has to offer, and we thought, “Why keep it to ourselves?”

Check out our Top 5 Most Anticipated ViVE Sessions below, and don’t miss our 2023 Event Season Survival Guide. If you see us at any of these events, we hope you’ll say hello!

Make Healthcare Easy on Me

Country Stage, Show Floor — Monday, 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM CDT

Make healthcare easy. That’s the simplest way of stating the very complex challenge ViVE attendees are trying to overcome. The session description states that “On average, patients spend 123 minutes getting medical care, and this time burden is 25-28% longer for racial/ethnic minorities and unemployed individuals.”

So how can virtual care have the greatest impact in helping patients navigate this environment? AI, mobile apps, consolidated solutions—it’s all up for discussion in this session featuring leaders from Solv Health, Highmark Health, Ro, and GoodRx.

Digital-First: Live and Let Die

Hip Hop Stage, Show Floor — Monday, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM CDT

Aside from reminding us of the Paul McCartney earworm that we now can’t get out of our heads (thanks ViVE…), this session has us excited for some honest conversation about digital transformation and its effects on the business of healthcare.

That transformation is no longer on the horizon—it’s here. Fitness and sleep trackers are ubiquitous, and patients now expect tech-enhanced care experiences.

Facing a challenging economy and staffing shortages, many are questioning whether they can afford to start their digital transformation now. But according to the Chief Digital Officers leading this session, you can’t afford not to.

Techquity: Readout from the First Industry Survey & Technology’s Impact on Children & Families

Techquity Impact Stage, Show Floor — Monday, 12:30 PM - 1:10 PM CDT

Like the first session mentioned above, this Techquity readout will address longstanding inequities in healthcare. It’s great to see so many conversations focused on virtual care’s potential for closing care gaps.

According to the session description, we’ll hear findings from the first-ever healthcare industry survey on digital health design, including the impact of accessibility on populations that have historically been marginalized from the healthcare system.

Sounds like a much-needed temperature check on the advances healthcare has made through virtual care…and the work still left to be done.

A Little Change Would Do Incumbents Good

Country Stage, Show Floor — Monday, 3:15 PM - 4:00 PM CDT

Nothing generates meaningful change like fresh perspective. But for every disruptor hoping to change the system for the better, there are always incumbents pushing back against that change—often to serve their own interests.

Disparate digital file piles that can’t talk to each other. Cold and clinical care experiences that make patients feel like passive observers—not active participants—in their own healthcare journey. Everywhere you look, you’ll find evidence that healthcare is long overdue for innovation.

This session asks, “Where will that innovation come from? Incumbents or new entries into the market?” Leaders from Walmart, One Medical, Instacart, and CVS Health will give their answers.

Digital Health Funding Going Down Swinging

Country Stage, Show Floor — Tuesday, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM CDT

First, can we acknowledge that amazing session title? Any Fall Out Boy fans out there??

This session promises real talk on our economic situation and its impact on virtual care investment. When the usual financial pressures are compounded by reimbursement uncertainties, shaky global markets, and a looming recession, it’s no surprise to see “corrections to old VC customs that have gone the way of the dinosaur.”

How should startups navigate a more selective funding environment? The VC experts in this session are ready to share their wisdom.

These topics are music to our ears. Reaping financial rewards, closing care gaps, simplifying tech stacks—we address all of these and more in our latest whitepaper on Virtual Care ROI.


Here’s the full ViVE agenda. We'll also be showcasing our Care Experience Platform in the Panda Health booth (#1519) on Monday from 12:00 - 12:45 PM and in the CHIME Theatre.

And if you miss us at these sessions or at our kiosk (#750-4) in the ScaleHealth Pavilion, you’ll probably find us helping Captain the dog raise money to fight cancer.
