Xconomy Texas — 

Innovations in the lab, in software, and in how doctors, hospitals, patients, and scientists view the world and relate to each other are transforming the way healthcare is delivered and consumed. Join us for a very special event as we bring together approximately 75 leaders in drug development, healthcare, venture capital, big data, and more to discuss advances in the way we not only treat illness, but in how we can improve care and promote health.
