Update: After Event at The Vault at Pfaff's, 643 Broadway between Bond and Bleeker
I know many of us just returned from HIMSS Conference and were inspired to listen to Cardiologist and researcher Eric Topol, M.D. expound on his vision of the future of medicine - powered by robots, measurement devices, and empowered patients. To reconcile such visions with the current reality of medical practice requires more than a little imagination, but less every day as we watch Medicine become the change that we have imagined and are helping it become. This is easy to perceive from the perspective of one who is immersed in the Healthcare Startup scene, but honestly, it is probably not reality compared to how Practicing Physicians, Nurses, and other Care Providers see it. We started the Providers 2.0 Series in the first place to bring the Providers of care into the conversation, gaining their insight, perspective, and mentorship.
Providers Perspectives 2.0
In this event, we will engage a panel of Physicians and hear from several thought leaders on the topic. Please make sure you answer the questions on registration and submit your questions so we we can pepper the panelists with your questions ahead of time.
