MIS2018 Topic Announced! The 16th Annual Medical Innovation Summit will Explore the Future of Disease Prevention and Population Health

Healthcare is in the midst of a dramatic transformation from hospital-based care focused on illness and disability to community-based services that focus on the prevention of illness and disability before they occur. The moral and economic benefits of this new approach are clear. As a result, markets are emerging that focus on the ever-growing data gleaned from sophisticated sensors and biomarkers of healthy populations to keep patients out of the hospital.
