How will value-based care drive digital health companies to show outcomes and improve evidence generation?
Date: April 13, 2021
Time: 11:00AM – 12:00PM PST
By 2026, health systems will need to show a shift from a fee-for-service model to a value-based care model. This will require health systems, payers, and digital health companies to work together to determine what evidence is needed to demonstrate outcomes. Where do health systems and payers even start in tackling this challenge? It’s all in the numbers . . .
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- What does value-based care mean and what challenges does it pose to our current healthcare ecosystem?
- What evidence will digital health companies need to generate to convince payers, providers, and health systems in a value-based care setting?
- What types of outcomes do health systems and payers care about measuring?
- What types of studies should digital health companies be conducting?
- What do digital health companies need to do differently to increase their chances of adoption in value-based care settings?

Danish Nagda, MD, MBA
Founder & CEO at Rezilient Health
Danish Nagda is a surgeon, serial entrepreneur, and a caregiver for his father. He serves as the founder and CEO of Rezilient, a virtual-first care delivery platform that bridges the convenience of telehealth with the scope of in-person care. In partnership with large retailers, Rezilient is building neighborhood hubs where there are no waiting rooms and where every physician is available at every location. He built Rezilient to redistribute points of care from the traditional doctor’s office to clinical access points located within the community.
As a caregiver, Danish spent countless hours traveling to and waiting in doctor’s offices with his father. As a doctor, he recognized that telehealth could help mitigate these issues, but found it to be limiting, especially when it came to his ability to examine patients remotely. Having previously founded Schoology, which was acquired by Powerschool, Danish knew the power of technology to transform an industry, and he was determined to solve the distribution problem in healthcare.
Danish pursued his MD at University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and residency in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis.
