Sep 24 2014

SAN DIEGO EVENT The arrival of digital health is radically transforming healthcare. Consumer empowerment in healthcare continues to grow and, as a result, is changing the way health data is tracked, sorted and shared on a regular basis. With the Quantified Self movement in full swing, crowdsourcing generating buzz and business models racing to keep up with the adoption of big data, the number of players in the healthcare industry has grown exponentially. Join us on September 18 while we step back to look at the big picture of digital health - where it's been, where it's headed, and the potential speed bumps along the way. Hear from a panel of experts from different areas of the digital health revolution, including open data, funding and the physician/patient relationship.

Our panel discussions are candid, interactive and informal. We hope you walk away with the real story behind how things work so you can make it happen for yourself. This panel will be followed by a networking reception.
