Welcome to the Health Technology Forum Innovation Conference!

This meeting explores innovations in healthcare technology that are making the best healthcare accessible to those with greatest need. Join us for:

Key Note Addresses by industry thought leaders on topics such as mHealth, healthcare policy, Innovation.

Program Highlights: NPR is presenting

Interactive Panel Discussions on the Future of Technological Innovation in Healthcare, Growth and Expectations. A sample of featured panels are-

1. Design Thinking for the Underserved

One of the panelists is Dennis Boyle, a partner and one of the leaders of IDEO's Health and Wellness business and a professor at Stanford Dennis will give examples and case studies about IDEO's approach and project work around the world in efforts to help alleviate the conditions of poverty, particularly in developing nations.

2. IT Challenges at Hospitals to Enhance Care Improvement

Five Bay Area Hospital CMIOs will be engaged in an interactive discussion on the needs for technologies to improve patient care.

3. Digital Media Law in Healthcare

Healthcare organizations are investing more time and resources in social media to engage the community in their health. In many cases organizations delayed (or sometimes are still delaying) participation on social platforms due to concerns with HIPAA and other legal concerns. Prestigious Law Firms will be joining in a conversation about current issues relevant to digital media law and healthcare.

Moderator: Renne Berry, Founder and CEO, goBeMoRe

4. Using Technology to Support Care for Dual Eligibles

Individuals who are dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid tend to have complex conditions, including mental health issues. They are often institutionalized, or at risk of being so. They also account for a large share of both Medicare and Medicaid spending. The federal government and some states are moving to test approaches to better integrate and coordinate care for dual eligibles to improve their quality of life and care as well as reduce costs. This panel will explore the role that ‘connected-health’ technology can play in programs for dual eligible, starting with understanding the characteristics of these individuals to the successful model pioneered by the VA. The panel will end with a discussion of key issues in designing and starting up programs for duals.

Moderator: Suneel Ratan, CEO and Founder, Care Architecture
Panelists: David Lindeman, PhD. Director, Center for Technology and Aging

Healthcare Technology Demonstrations in emerging healthcare innovations and Case Studies for best practices in technology deployment.

Registration includes full conference access, breakfast, lunch and a networking cocktail reception.
