  • IBM Innovation Center, 404 Wyman St., Waltham  MA
Join leading thinkers, physicians, and technologists for a “deep dive” into the new frontiers of healthcare — a free symposium on June 29th. Featured speaker and panelist: Dr. Jason Hwang, Executive Director of Healthcare at Innosight Institute, and co-author of The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care. 

  • Keynote talks
  • Panel discussion and Q&A
  • Updates on IBM’s “Watson” technology in healthcare 
  • Networking sessions before and after
The ground is shifting in American healthcare.  At 17% (and rising) of our GDP, even small changes are huge, and these are not small changes.

  • Disruptive, or business as usual?
  • Revolution, or evolution?
  • What’s next?  Who benefits?  What part does technology play?  Where are the opportunities?   

This event puts you directly in touch with leading thinkers, innovators, and pioneers who intimately understand the healthcare landscape and its most promising trends and technologies.

Join nationally recognized healthcare reform leader Dr. Allan Goroll and his guests for a “deep dive” into these questions during an evening that promises to be provocative, insightful, and of lasting value to anyone interested in identifying opportunities in healthcare, today and in the future.
