The older I get, the more often I am reminded of big problems in our healthcare system. I don’t have the answers, but I do have some questions. One of them is how much technology can help solve these problems—long wait times, high costs, failures of communication—and how fast that could happen.
On November 17, we’re gonna get some answers. Xconomy is convening the cream of the crop in healthtech leaders across hospitals, startups, big companies, and investment groups. What’s Hot in Boston Healthtech is a special afternoon conference that will address everything from personalized medicine to telemedicine, primary care to digital health, and brain monitoring to synthetic biology.
It’s all happening at the Broad Institute in Kendall Square (Cambridge, MA), and you can see the full agenda here.
Just a few of the highlights:
—Dennis Ausiello from Massachusetts General Hospital will discuss “a path to defining wellness.”
—Gary Gottlieb from Partners in Health and Robert Wells of GE Healthymagination will talk about Boston as the center of world health.
—Roy Schoenberg from American Well will talk about (and demo) virtual doctor visits.
—Rushika Fernandopulle from Iora Health will chat with Michael Greeley of Flare Capital Partners about the future of primary care.
—Jason Kelly from Ginkgo Bioworks will discuss his vision for synthetic biology, including “living factories run by robots.”
I don’t want to miss this. You don’t want to miss this. We have just a few tickets left, and you can register here. See you on Nov. 17.
