Next IT, the most trusted provider of A.I. solutions, today announced the launch of the Next Edge: Health Experience Summit. The day-long event will feature conversations from leaders who are improving the overall experience of healthcare. The summit will be held on November 3rd, 2015, at the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing.

The delivery of modern healthcare leaves room for improvement, indicated by everything from floundering adherence rates, stagnant results in the treatment of chronic diseases and rapidly rising costs. The Next Edge: Health Experience Summit will address the fundamental questions of how the practice of healthcare integrates into each person’s unique life and how it extends beyond the doors of the clinic, the hospital or the doctor’s office.

The event will bring together leaders from every part of the healthcare industry who are pushing forward the vision of person-centric care. Attendees will leave with new and diverse points of view as well as data and examples of how patients are managing their own care today, how providers are facilitating it and trends that will impact patient care in the coming decades.

“Much of the recent change in today’s US healthcare system has been made on the macro-level: high-level policy aimed at making life better for patients, and it’s had mixed results,” said Mitch Lawrence, Next IT’s President of Healthcare. “In order to take healthcare from policy to personal – or theory to action – we need solutions that will enable people to take charge of their own wellness.”

The summit’s program will feature perspectives from those designing and building the future of healthcare today, balancing both practical presentations on current technologies and visionary conversations about what lies ahead. In each keynote and breakout session, experts, builders, thinkers and pioneers will explore new technology, systems, models and future possibilities. They’ll talk about the challenges and innovations they are working on, as well as the realities they face.

“When person-centric care reaches each and every member of the healthcare ecosystem, only then will we overcome some of the most daunting global health challenges we face,” said Next IT’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Thomas Morrow.

Speakers and attendees will be drawn from all corners of healthcare. There are limited speaking slots available, so please contact the event organizers if interested in participating as a speaker.
