Trends, innovation, and leading experts in the digital health market converge for a brand new look at technology’s impact on healthcare in America when Living in Digital Times presents the Digital Health Summit at the 2014 International CES®.
The two-day Digital Health Summit explores how digital tools are reinventing and reshaping the health industry. From the simple checkup to major surgery, and consumer empowerment to employer wellness incentives, major initiatives will be unveiled and explored.
"The Digital Health Summit is not your typical, ho-hum healthcare conference," said Jill Gilbert, producer of the Summit. "Because the Summit has the unique setting of CES as its backdrop, we can present some of the most creative and unique keynotes and sessions, respected experts and cutting-edge innovations in digital health that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s truly a cross-pollination of the best mix of medical, healthcare, and consumer brands all in one place."
"Consumers of health-related apps and hardware devices constitute the fastest growing segment of the technology market," said Robin Raskin, founder of Living in Digital Times. "The Summit will explore the rapidly growing wearables market, mobile health apps, sensor-based technology, telemedicine, the Internet of Things and more. It’s a must-see for those who see the potential for technology to innovate in the health arena."
