It’s been a little more than a week since we announced CONVERGE, MedCityNews.com’s event focused on healthcare innovation and convergence. And in those 10 days, there have been multiple reminders of why such an event is long overdue.
- The federal government launched a new $200 million big data initiative led by, among others, the National Institutes of Health.
- New York’s Blueprint Health said it wants to recruit 100 healthcare entrepreneurs to its facility, while California’s Rock Health opened a second location in Boston.
- And the impact of personalized medicine? It will lead to “a handshake between clinical research and clinical practice.”
The speed of healthcare innovation just keeps getting faster. So join us July 10 in Philadelphia for CONVERGE, where we’ll discuss topics including digital health and personalized medicine, and outline where the puck is going across the new landscape of converged healthcare.
We’re also making it easy for you to attend and we urge you to take advantage now of our early-bird ticket offer. Tickets to the event are 40 percent off now through May 1.
The conference program is shaping up well and we’ll be announcing our first round of speakers soon, so I encourage you to keep checking the website. The program will feature some of the most promising early-stage companies; medtech and pharma executives; leaders from payers and healthcare providers; digital health, information technology companies and investors. And, we’ve already partnered with the likes of GSK, Medtronic, UnitedHealth, Safeguard and many others on the event.
We’re also offering some really innovative sponsorship opportunities and are still looking for speakers. More information about those opportunities can be found here: MedCityNews.com/events/converge/
