We have healthcare conferences galore in this city, but here’s one more that you’ll definitely want to mark on your calendar: the Mass Technology Leadership Council’s Healthcare Conference, which meets on December 3, 2014. The event will bring together payers, providers, patients and technologists, as per usual. But the speakers will also dive deep into technology innovations like cloud, mobile, big data and robotics, focusing on how those technologies can positively impact the healthcare system.
“This event will explore how technology innovations are the key to reinventing the healthcare system,” the organizers told us. “We’ll evaluate the impact on the delivery of service, patient engagement and responsibility, and costs for patients, providers and payers. We’ll cover predictive analytics, the convergence of healthcare and the digital consumer, innovations in robotics, clinical research and care environments, and security and privacy in the healthcare industry.”
We’ve said before that the biggest healthcare innovations may come from outside of healthcare and this kind of conference is aimed right in that direction. Plus, it sounds like a packed schedule and we can’t wait to see what they have in store. We also love their mission, which focuses on using the wealth of healthcare silos in this city to inform the audience but also to connect people to each other: “We want to enhance collaboration amongst the key players to revolutionize an industry.”
