CONNECTED HEALTH CONFERENCE • Boston, MA • October 25-27, 2017
Our new venue in Boston's Innovation District is proving to be the perfect setting for the 2017 Connected Health Conference (CHC17). We are positioned among some of the world's leading healthcare, academic and research organizations and our program and events reflect the innovation that will be surrounding us.
CHC17 is convening some of the most forward-thinking and innovative health systems, healthcare providers, companies and investors who are shaping the future of health and wellness. Here are just a few examples:
In our new Health System Innovation track, organizations like PULSE@MassChallenge, Healthbox, Intermountain Healthcare, Brigham Digital Innovation Hub, Johns Hopkins Medicine Technology Innovation Center and MITRE will discuss the novel partnerships that are disrupting and redesigning healthcare delivery. And, initiatives from companies like Intel, IBM, Cognizant, MDRevolution and Becton Dickinson, as well as groundbreaking programs from the CDC Immunization Project, HHS Idea Lab and data from the Digital Doctor Survey conducted by IPSOS, will be presented on the Innovation Lounge state. PCHAlliance and HIMSS Analytics will also come together to discuss results of a recent connected health survey.
Early stage companies also an important role in advancing personal connected health, and can often be credited with next-generation thinking. Ten such companies will participate in the HealthTech Standout! Competition, showcasing the most innovative and game-changing products in the industry. From virtual reality, a mobile app that supports end-of-life decisions and a mobile vision center and home exam and diagnosis solutions, we will get a glimpse of the future.
And, attendees will hear from the winner of the Connected Health Innovation Challenge (CHIC), an internal contest hosted by Partners Connected Health to foster innovation among employees and clinical faculty at Partners HealthCare. Clinicians and administrators from McLean Hospital, a leader in psychiatric care, research and education, and the largest psychiatric teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, will share their winning idea aimed at bridging the gap in access to group therapy treatment for individuals with both mood and substance abuse disorders. To address this problem, the team is developing a secure mobile app that could provide key elements of integrated group therapy treatment, including mood monitoring and check-ins, videos and other educational content for individuals with both mood and substance abuse disorders.
Join us in Boston at CHC17, connect with colleagues and potential business partners, and benefit from the nearly 50 sessions, dinners, meet-ups and special presentations featuring nearly 200 speakers sharing their wisdom, experience and vision. CHC17 is the place to be, October 25-27, and we hope to see you there.
