Innovative Ideas on the Agenda

Networks, platforms, and applications to use for technology-enabled participatory medicine will be key discussion points at the 7th Annual Healthcare Unbound Conference & Exhibition. The meeting organized by The Center for Business Innovation will take place at the US Grant Hotel in San Diego on July 19-20, 2010.

“This year’s Healthcare Unbound comes after stimulus funding was provided for health IT and after the passage of national healthcare reform legislation. History will mark 2010 as the tipping point enabling healthcare unbound technologies, clinical systems, and business models to rapidly move forward,” said Vince Kuraitis, JD, MBA, and Principal for Better Health Technologies, LLC, a chairperson, conference advisory board member, and keynote speaker.

The Conference will include over 60 speakers participating in panel discussions, case studies, workshops, and keynote addresses. Sessions will include in-depth coverage of technology-enabled chronic care management and wellness promotion, impact of health reform and the economic stimulus package on the marketplace, legal/regulatory and reimbursement issues, payer perspectives, wireless technologies, the medical home model and the technology implications, social media, ehealth, games and entertainment to engage consumers, and much more.
