Event Details

Tremendous change is sweeping healthcare, much of it driven by legislative reform and the convergence of the healing arts with advances in wireless, Internet, and other information technologies. So far, this transformation has taken place chiefly around electronic medical records and ways to make traditional medical practices more efficient. Yet what about the consumer? Can advances in remote sensing enable patients to convalesce at home while their physicians monitor and interact with them from afar? Can employers tap emerging technology to help their employees not just save money but improve their health and productivity? Will healthcare-management apps and social networking enable people to more successfully take charge of their own health?

The short answer is: quite possibly, yes—and San Diego, with its cluster of wireless and IT technologies and renowned centers of medical research, is at the forefront of this revolution. So Xconomy is rallying top clinicians, entrepreneurs, investors, and technology innovators for a lively forum about this critical transformation. Through their experiences and visions for the future, and lots of audience interaction, we’ll give you a unique look at the promise and reality of innovations on the consumer side of healthcare IT.
