The Healthcare Summit 2014
Friday, February 21, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM (CST)
Advances in genomics, mobile technology, and data collection and analysis are poised to transform healthcare from drug development to patient care and hospital management. But what will it take to realize their promise in the age of the Affordable Care Act, and what does this require of payers, providers, and patients? How can we finally utilize new innovations to hold the line on medical costs while improving care and promoting health rather than just treating illness?
Join Xconomy for an elite, invitation-only summit featuring leaders in healthcare, personalized medicine and genomics, health IT, big data, venture capital, and more as we consider the future of medicine and health and look for entrepreneurial solutions to the challenges facing our healthcare system.
