Today and tomorrow I will be attending the 2016 Connected Health Symposium at Boston’s Seaport Hotel. “The Connected Health Symposium is a change-agent conference that promotes innovative thinking and the application of personal consumer health technologies to support new models of care delivery.” (Source) For years I have longed to attend this conference, but have never been able to make it work with my travel schedule. This year it falls on a week when I just happened to be in Boston on business, so I jumped at the opportunity to attend. As I mentioned in a previous post, I read Joe Kvedar’s book, The Internet of Health Things, in preparation for attending the Connected Health Symposium. Having read the book, I am now prepared to be wowed by the conference!
Look for my Tweets and blog posts over the next couple of days. This will be a new experience for me and I look forward to sharing it online. Follow along as I join 1,000 innovators, digital dreamers, healthcare leaders, practitioners and thinkers who will gather for this event hosted by Partners HealthCare Connected Health. My guess is that the one thing that will unite all attendees is their belief that we can improve health and wellness through the development and application of digital technologies that fit seamlessly within the lives of individuals.
