Event description


After the hype of Fitbit, Misfit & Jawbone that democratized the internet of things for personal healthcare, what is the state of the art of connected devices for our health?

Beyond measuring our steps or heart pulse, smart devices now tracks more data. They also use AI to help us to make sense of this raw data. Insurance companies start to consider the value of these data to reward data-proven health customers. Some devices like Sana (see below) do not only track data but also directly have a direct action on us. Beyond individuals, labs & hospitals are getting also equipped with IOT to keep making the world healthier.

L'Atelier BNP Paribas North America is pleased to invite you to its #HealthIOT event.


The evening will start with a keynote run by analyst from L'Atelier BNP Paribas NA presenting the major trends within Health IOT.

Then, 3 top health IOT innovators will pitch their startup for 5 min + 5 min Q&A before to join for a 30-min common panel discussion. These speakers will dive into the subject with us to share their project and vision and understand the healthtech innovations currently occurring within the healthcare industry.

The event will end up with a networking session with drinks & savory. You'll have also the opportunity to test some Health IOT devices.
