San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
Hosted by Owen Thomas, Editor-in-Chief of ReadWrite, RxUX focused on the design and process involved with bringing innovative healthcare products to market. RxUX brought together thought leaders from healthcare companies, healthcare startups, researchers, investors and clinicians for a unique fast-paced case-study styled event.
“As promised, the event was not your standard fare. Our goal was for attendees to come away with three things: nuggets of wisdom applicable to their work, a chance to meet interesting people passionate about healthcare - all while having some fun. The response from attendees was that all three objectives were resoundingly achieved.” said Darci Moreau VP Startup Relations, angelMD
“The consumerization of health and wellness technology is reshaping medical devices and software much as we’ve previously seen with retail and enterprise tech.” said Jeremy Landis, Founder, Cainkade “At RxUX, we saw that the next wave of health tech is gorgeous, delightful to use and will enrich people’s lives in meaningful ways.”
