The Healthcare Summit 2014

The healthcare transformation is in full swing. Though the ultimate payoffs, namely better care and better economics, have yet to be realized, the building blocks are quickly falling into place: increasingly sophisticated data and analysis tools in the hands of researchers and physicians, powerful healthcare apps and wearable devices in the hands of consumers, and new ways of discovering and developing drugs that might cure presently incurable diseases. In short, a new era is upon us—and evolving fast.

The second Xconomy Healthcare Summit, at the picturesque deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, will provide a unique opportunity to think broadly and deeply about this transformation. What are the most important new advances in medicine? Where do things really stand with the Affordable Care Act, and what does it demand of payers, providers, and patients? Will innovation finally break the cycle of ever-escalating costs and expand the reach of affordable, quality medical care? Will drugs really be tailored to individual genomes, and what will that mean?

Join Xconomy for this invitation-only summit featuring leaders in healthcare, personalized medicine and genomics, health IT, big data, venture capital, and more. Together with a high-level audience of some 90-100 innovators, we will look for entrepreneurial solutions to the challenges facing our healthcare system. The conference registration fee of $795 includes breakfast, lunch, and a post-event reception.

The Healthcare Summit is by invitation only. If you’d like to request an invitation, please send us an e-mail at Include your name and contact information, title, company, and a brief bio. If selected, we will send you registration information.
