About the event

Health costs and demand for health services are both steadily rising across the world. The need to control healthcare expenditures and at the same time improve health outcomes become ever more pressing.

These goals are achievable. Swiss Re Corporate Solutions, together with Emory Healthcare, hosted the Transforming Healthcare - Health policy, digital health and data privacy: Who pays the bill? conference to discuss how best practice can be cultivated and developed within healthcare providers.

Alongside sessions on the economics of healthcare and improving healthcare, the conference considered digital security within healthcare hearing views from the cutting edge of the healthcare debate.

This was the second in the Transforming healthcare series. The first was last year's event "Transforming healthcare: Telemedicine, best practice and you" which took place in February 2015.

Cyber: in search of resilience in an interconnected world

Following several high-profile cyber security breaches over recent years, a growing number of corporations perceive cyber as a high risk. Swiss Re therefore expects the demand for cyber insurance to rise. These are the findings of a joint study Swiss Re and the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted in 2016.
