VentureBeat Dives Deep into Healthcare at HealthBeat 2013

Join us at VentureBeat’s first health conference, HealthBeat 2013 — May 20-21 in San Francisco — to take a deep look at how technology is transforming health care. HealthBeat is putting the long-established and respected giants of the health care world, including Geisinger Health System, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, AARP and others on stage with CEOs of the nation's most disruptive health tech companies.

Together, they'll debate how IT can drive out inefficiencies on the hospital, practice, and patient levels. They'll share insights, analyze trends, highlight solutions, and showcase breakthrough products. The program is packed with over 60 industry leading speakers, high-level chats, breakout sessions, networking initiatives, and a brand new health-tech startup competition. 

The second day of the conference will feature the Grand Rounds Innovation Showdown, a lively startup competition where 10 digital health companies pitch their businesses live in front of an expert panel of Venture Capital judges and 500+ attendees. Throughout the two days, the team will help you forge and deepen relationships through a series of organized networking initiatives including roundtable lunch discussions, quick-connect sessions and business card bingo.

The focus of the conference is taking the consumer theme one step further, and focusing on the growing intersection between traditional and emerging consumer businesses and those of the broad-based healthcare system, as well as how the overlap of these sectors is necessitated by the changing healthcare policy and commercial environments.  They will also see examples of businesses that are taking advantage of the intersection of consumer and healthcare system opportunities to foster greater engagement, accountability and creativity from both sides.
