Farewell to the silos (in health care innovation)

Health care was infamous for its separate and siloed industry sectors. But health care has changed. It’s no longer about silos. Health care reform, mobile apps and big data are forcing connections, convergence and collaboration across all sectors.
MedCity CONVERGE on July 10 in Philadelphia is one of the few events that gathers the entire health care innovation ecosystem to chart the path for the future of medicine. How will the federal government and insurance reimburse for big data? What mobile apps are favored by the pharmaceutical industry? And which health technologies do investors favor most?
The most comprehensive answers will come at CONVERGE. See the agenda and buy your tickets with a 30 percent off GigaOM offer code: GIGAOM.
Who is coming to CONVERGE? Executives making investments for and driving innovation at places like UnitedHealth Group and Pfizer. Innovative startups charting health care’s digital directions like Docphin, GestSure and 1DocWay. And health systems like Penn Medicine and Children’s Hospital Boston, who are applying technology to transform how patients are treated.
They’re joined by investors, big thinkers, hospital executives and other leaders who will spin off, invest and collaborate on tomorrow’s innovations.
Join them all at CONVERGE.
