Health Innovators to Gather in Boston

Partners Healthcare as the host for the Boston “2015 Connected Health Symposium on October 29-30, will gather a multi-disciplinary and diverse audience of 1,000 health leaders worldwide, hospital executives, community-based MDs, health plan leaders, fortune 500 employers, policy makers, researchers, technology developers, leading investors, patients, advocates, leading investigators, start-ups, and fortune 500 companies.

The theme this year is “The Internet of Healthy Things: Integrating Connected Health into Real World Care Delivery.” The idea is to emphasize real world examples of how connected health is impacting improved patient engagement, care outcomes, and successful business models while still educating the market on what we see coming 5 to 7 years out.

By focusing on trends at the intersection of technology and new models of care delivery, the Symposium will assemble thought leaders with the goal to grow the rapidly expanding connected health marketplace.
