14oct3:30 pm6:30 pmDigital Diagnosis – Harnessing Digital Technology to Improve Personal Health


Event Details


In less than a generation, digital technology has become ubiquitous, with the majority of Americans now walking around with more computing power in the palm of their hands than was needed to power early NASA missions to the moon. The advancement of digital technologies has enabled devices to monitor and analyze your body\’s vital functions, a huge improvement over early health monitoring devices, like a traditional home scale. How can we harness this technology to improve our personal health? Where are these technologies heading in the future?

A panel of experts will discuss current digital health tools and their benefits as well as the promise for the next generation of digital products to improve health outcomes and empower consumers. See live demonstrations from companies developing new health monitoring technologies.

Our panel discussions are candid, interactive and informal. We hope you walk away with insights and knowledge that can help advance your work or overcome roadblocks. The panel will be followed by a networking reception.
