The Minnesota Health Care Roundtable is a semi-annual conference that examines topics affecting the evolution of health care policy. Hosted by Minnesota Physician Publishing, we assemble a panel of between six and eight different stakeholder group perspectives and present a moderated discussion in front of a live audience. Through a three-phase curriculum development process, panelists are involved with co-creating the conference themes. The events generate an eight-page report, published in Minnesota Physician and Minnesota Health Care News and posted online.

Regenerative Medicine Minnesota

Transforming the future of health care

Regenerative Medicine:

Efficacy, Economics, and Evolution

Tuesday, December 12, 2017, 1-4 pm

The Gallery, Downtown Minneapolis Hilton and Towers

We will define regenerative medicine and trace its development. We will explore what the pharmaceutical, device, and insurance industries are doing now with regenerative medicine and how they can work together moving forward. We will discuss the challenges that face regenerative medicine and offer potential solutions. We will look ahead so that, as we enter the third decade of the 21st century, the pace of  innovation can expand in a way that is accessible, affordable, and sustainable.

Several recent studies have reached troubling conclusions. A huge percentage of prescription medications produce little to no therapeutic benefit for many patients. In large part this relates to a drug development paradigm and medical care model centered more on treating symptoms than curing root causes. An emerging solution to this problem is the field of regenerative medicine—an approach that directly repairs or replaces damaged tissues and organs. Though initial research and development costs present significant upfront investment, the promise of better outcomes and eventual savings are impossible to ignore.

 

Panelists include:

Blake Johnson, MD, Center for Diagnostic Imaging

David R. Brown, MD, Children’s Minnesota

Meri Firpo, PhD, Stem Cell Institute

Roger Hogue, MD, Minnesota Regenerative Medicine

David Largaespada, PhD, Institute for Molecular Virology

Matthew Thorson MD, Stem Cell Centers

An 8-person expert panel will represent various stakeholder positions before a live audience of about 100 registered attendees. The conference is recorded and transcribed. The 20,000 word transcription document generates a 7,000 word 8-page report that is published in Minnesota Physician, Health Care News (57,000 total copies) and posted in several places on the internet. Conference sponsors receive electronic copies of this enduring document with full copyright access to post on their own websites or distribute as collateral materials to prospective and existing clients.

Panel Dynamics:

 

The afternoon event will facilitate a policy discussion from different stakeholder perspectives. The goal is to promote deeper understanding, identify common ground solutions, and create an enduring conference report in print and online. A panel moderator will pose questions for panelists based on a curriculum that sponsors help to develop. For the last 30 minutes, he will pose questions from the live audience. Refreshments will be served before the program, during the break, and at the closing reception to encourage dialogue between panelists and healthcare leaders in the audience.
