It’s almost here! The 12th annual Connected Health Symposium will take place October 29 & 30, 2015 at the Seaport Hotel and Trade Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The Symposium is an opportunity for today’s best and brightest minds to help create a place where “health, technology, research, human behavior and public policy intersect.”
This year’s theme is “The Internet of Healthy Things℠: Integrating Connected Health into Real World Care Delivery.” With a full lineup of renowned speakers and a comprehensive agenda to explore connected health’s growing impact, I can’t wait to see what the Symposium has in store.
Take a look below at a few sessions that I’m personally revved up for. For the full agenda, click here.
Wearables, Apps, and Social Media Panel
If you have any stake in the relationship between consumers and digital health, you know a thing or two about the growing role of wearable technology, health apps, and social media platforms. On October 29 at 9:00 a.m., this panel will explore and dissect the boom in personal health devices.
Can they truly impact the delivery of care and how patients manage their health? This panel will address some key tools, the progress they’ve made in disseminating into the market, how they integrate into our daily lives, and the prognosis for their long-term role in healthcare.
Innovators Challenge Product Demo
One of my favorites (and the highest-attended session at the Symposium)! Ten finalists will each take the stage on October 29 at 10:20 a.m. to demonstrate their products and convince the audience that they hold the key to a new, genuine innovation that can truly make a difference in healthcare.
Jumping into the Patient Shark Tank®, these products will be reviewed by patients as they’re presented live. The most disruptive innovation will be announced on Day 2 by Sarah Krüg, CEO of patient advocacy organization CANCER101. And then hopefully, we’ll get to see it blossom into the marketplace in the coming years.
Debunking Telehealth Myths Panel
Telehealth is popping up everywhere and showing no signs of slowing down in terms of growth. It’s incredible to think of the time and resources that telehealth can save, as well as the overwhelming convenience for both caregivers and patients.
On October 30 at 2:05 p.m., this panel will discuss all of the groundbreaking developments and trends that are taking place in the field, as well as address some important myths that may be hindering the ability for telehealth and telemedicine to be seamlessly adopted into real world care settings.
