Speakers will cover diverse topics, including how and why technology has become a critical cornerstone to combat chronic disease. Attendees can expect to hear the industry’s innovative solutions to complicated problems, including the following topic areas:

Machine Learning and Big Data – The ethical, financial, and employment-related changes that will arise from the fundamental paradigm shift for providers, insurers, and patients

Information, Device, and Mobile Solutions – How these solutions traverse beyond the silos and can make a difference in public health

Breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics – How technologies can both assist and empower patients with chronic disease to achieve better outcomes, while coping with the feelings of isolation that often exacerbate chronic illness


Featured speakers such as Patrick Wayte, MBA of the AHA’s Center for Health Technology and Innovation and entrepreneur Corey Kidd, PhD will guide in-depth discussions and Q&A sessions: designed to advance the field of medical technology, and voice tangible, concrete solutions for clinicians looking to utilize and apply technology to elevate their practices.
