CONNECTED HEALTH CONFERENCE • SAVE THE DATE • October 16-18, 2019 • Boston, MA
Several years ago, my friend Lucien Engelen of Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands, decided to create the designation #PatientsIncluded to indicate conferences that intentionally welcomed patients to be fully engage. We at the Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance), since we focus on consumer-facing health technology, decided that we should seek this designation for the Connected Health Conference.
Here is our progress to date as we plan to apply for this important designation:
We also have patients participating in several panel sessions:
- moderated by Nick LiBassi, United Spinal Association
In addition, the Connected Health Conference will include these events: WEGO Health Awards for patient leaders will be announced in the exhibit hall on Thursday, October 18; and the Society for Participatory Medicine will host a meeting as part of the conference on Wednesday, October 17.
As the leading connected health event, we are pleased to include patients, to provide important perspective and motivation.
