Interview with Karl Zachar

Karl Zachar, VP of Corporate Development, athenahealth
Athenahealth doesn’t need much of an introduction around here, but Karl’s responsible for its strategic partnership and acquisition strategy, which has gotten a lot more serious in the past couple of years–not coincidentally since he joined. For most of the last decade, Karl was President of IntrinsiQ, an oncology informatics company sold to Accel-KKR and then AmeriSourceBergen. Karl’s also a brave triathlete who spent several years helping run the experiential (and experimental) high school Shackleton School.

Interview with Jonathan Bush

Jonathan Bush, CEO, athenahealth
Jonathan has made quite a name for himself since founding athenahealth with Todd Park—who’s of course now the Federal CTO. Athenahealth’s products include not only the biggest cloud-based practice management system, AthenaCollector, but also Clinicals (EMR), Communicator (patient messaging) and Coordinator (care transitions). In the spirit of this conference, while Athena has grown its core cloud services, the last two products came by purchasing other technology vendors. We all know about Jonathan’s outspoken nature, his criticism of basically everyone in health IT, ONC, who knows where else, and many of you have seen him poking fun at the industry–and himself–at his annual HISSies presentation. It was very different in 1997, when Jonathan and Todd decided to set up an OBGYN clinic. In this interview you’re going to hear a whole lot about athena’s journey from start-up to $2.5 billion in market cap, including what partnerships and tactics worked and what didn’t. Yes, this is going to be fun.

Daniel Orenstein, General Counsel, athenahealth
Health Law 2.0 addresses the pressing legal issues for both large and small Health 2.0 companies in the regulated world of health care. There’ll be two tracks of programming — one focused on Patient/Consumer Legal Issues and the other focused on Legal Issues with Providers, Plans and Life Sciences.

The panels we have assembled include the leading experts in each topic who will provide an overview and important updates. The panel also will work through some interactive examples of problematic arrangements and provide insight on how to avoid legal risk. In every session, there will be ample time for questions.

This is a wonderful opportunity for all Health 2.0 companies to delve deeper into the legal issues so they can make better choices as well as identify potential opportunities and capitalize on them.
