Healthcare innovators uniting next week will be rallied by two crucial figures in the business of healthcare: one is a leading pharmaceutical executive in the thick of his industry’s transformation and the other is among the most outspoken advocates of the health data revolution.

Adrian Rawcliffe, GlaxoSmithKline’s U.S. chief financial officer, and Bryan Sivak, chief technology officer of Health and Human Services, will share their views on innovation and other healthcare industry trends as the keynote speakers at MedCity CONVERGE on July 9-10 in Philadelphia.

Rawcliffe will kick off Day 1 of CONVERGE on July 9 and Sivak will launch the beginning of the second day of the event. They are among a series of executive-level leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and other leaders speaking at CONVERGE.

Rawcliffe is a member of GSK’s finance leadership team and has worked on a series of leadership roles within the pharmaceutical giant since 1998, including senior vice president for finance in North America and worldwide business development and research and development finance. He’s been responsible for all pharma R&D business development for GSK including co-development, in-licensing, options based drug discovery collaborations and some mergers and acquisitions activity. In short: He’s had an eye on everything include partnerships with GSK, the company pipeline and how it partners with investors and does its own investments.

Sivak will share how he’s working to leverage the Department of Health and Human Service’s two most undervalued assets – data and people – to further the transformation of healthcare and the delivery of human services to build the foundations of a next-generation government. He’s served as the HHS CTO since July 2011 and was previously the chief information officer to Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley. He’s been a ubiquitous front man for the health-data movement that continues to build among the most important stakeholders in the industry.
