HealthTech Capital Announces HealthTech Conference 2012

Written by Don Ross // 03 August 2012 // Conferences, healthtech, HealthTech Capital,

While our healthcare system is in a state of flux, new opportunities are exploding and a flood of new technologies are appearing from outside the healthcare domain. The onset of new mobile technologies, personalization, real time information, persistent monitoring and other innovations promise to remake the way healthcare is delivered.

 But these technologies often arrive without an understanding of unique challenges presented by our healthcare system. The HealthTech Conference 2012 is specifically designed to be an interactive practical experience with ample networking opportunities. We’ll explore the real pain points of providers with CEOs of major hospitals. Thought leaders will look at the enabling technologies remaking the healthcare landscape. Leaders of successful companies will share their lessons learned in the HealthTech domain.

Top venture capitalists will share how they evaluate HealthTech companies. Top emerging HealthTech companies will be in the Demo Hall. Audience voting combined with the investor input will select the “Most Promising 2012 HealthTech Company.

 Major networking opportunities are planned throughout the day, which wraps with a reception and conversations recapping the event.

October 26 at Mission Bay in San Francisco--hope to see you there!
