Beg, Borrow and Steal: Repurposing Non-Healthcare Financial Instruments to Drive New Treatments to Patients
Bloom will describe how financial instruments used in other business sectors can be repurposed in healthcare: to deliver more treatments, reduce and manage direct healthcare costs, positively impact patients and payers, and provide opportunity for investors and industry.
Dr. Bruce Bloom is President and CSO of Cures Within Reach, a charity saving lives by repurposing approved drugs and devices to deliver a dozen fast, safe and affordable treatments for diseases that had no effective therapy.
