Boston has something special going on in terms of health-related technologies and applications: world-renowned medical facilities, training institutions, academic researchers, health IT companies, startups, and investors.
Yet the future of healthtech—and Boston’s place in it—is uncertain. As things like health analytics, genomics, telemedicine, and wearables become more integrated into hospitals and home life, new opportunities are emerging for patient care—and for business.
On November 17, Xconomy is bringing together a select group of healthtech leaders to talk about the future—and the present. Our special forum on “What’s Hot in Boston Healthtech” is taking place at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, MA. This afternoon conference will highlight the ways in which some very different technology approaches are poised to transform healthcare in the post-election era.
A few speakers to highlight:
Colin Hill, CEO and Co-Founder, GNS Healthcare
Dennis Ausiello, Chairman of Medicine, Emeritus, Mass. General Hospital
Michael Greeley, General Partner, Flare Capital Partners
Rushika Fernandopulle, CEO & Co-Founder, Iora Health
Jason Kelly, CEO & Co-Founder, Ginkgo Bioworks
Roy Schoenberg, CEO & Co-Founder, American Well
Gary Gottlieb, CEO, Partners In Health
Kyle Armbrester, Senior Vice President & Chief Product Officer, Athenahealth
Nick Dougherty, Program Director, PULSE@MassChallenge
We’ll have more to announce soon, but you can count on an intriguing mix of talks, discussions, demos—and lots of networking. Tickets have been going fast, but you can still grab a seat here (student and startup rates may apply). Hope to see you all on Nov. 17.
