The Advantia_NEXT Speaker Series and Physician Meetup is an exclusive event for young physicians interested in understanding and applying emerging digital technology in healthcare practice. We are bringing together digital health leaders and physicians to exchange ideas and build a community imagining what's next for healthcare.
This event features a conversation about disruptive solutions to the health care conundrum. Leading stakeholders from hospitals, insurers, and critical regulatory bodies sit down with the technology industry’s top innovators, investors, and entrepreneurs to discuss how technology can unwrap the inefficiencies of the massive healthcare sector. This isn’t a showcase of gadgets. It’s the source of the conversation for healthcare solutions and opportunities, delivered through new and innovative technologies.
