Event Details

The current healthcare debate and resulting legislation is a watershed moment for the delivery of care to patients. Old institutions and inefficiencies are being done away with in favor of technological advances that encourage high-touch care and patient empowerment. As occurs during industry turning points, opportunities for entrepreneurs are abundant. Identifying these opportunities and acting on them requires the ability to see and understand the interplay among many seemingly disparate groups.

The forum is set to represent a diverse set of sectors, from suppliers (pharmaceuticals, biotech and medical devices) to healthcare delivery and services, as well as a broad range of functions, from marketing to business development to investors.
