The Fantastic Voyage Into Digital Health: SVForum Announces Upcoming HealthTech Conference “The Future of Personalized Healthcare”

The Future of Personalized Healthcare is coming to SVForum on March 27th, 2014. Healthtech innovators will preview how the latest technologies—including mobile devices, 3D printing and scanning, big data, ingestible sensors, machine learning, and enterprise Cloud—are enabling the delivery of Health as a Service. Confirmed keynote speakers include Dr. Daniel Kraft of FutureMed/Singularity University, Clint McLellan of Qualcomm, Scott Summit of 3D Systems, and a Proteus Digital Health executive (TBA).

“The future of healthcare lies in its ability to utilize the disruptive technology at hand to deliver on-demand, personalized and cost-effective healthcare,” stated SVForum CEO Adiba Barney. “The healthcare industry covers 18% of the US economy, and with the implementation of Affordable Care Act—and the Federal Government’s commitment to delivering universal healthcare—this is an unprecedented opportunity for healthtech entrepreneurs to utilize the latest technology to move from reimbursement-based healthcare to outcome-based healthcare.”

Among the topics that will be discussed are digital health, mobile device as medical platform, genomics, the augmented human, electronic health records, HIPAA-compliant enterprise messaging systems, and enterprise healthcare SaaS.

"SCVSoft is proud to sponsor the ‘The Future of Personalized Healthcare,’" said CEO and founder Eric Miller. "It’s a great opportunity to hear thought leaders debate and forecast which technologies will win and lose in the coming months and years."

Matt Thompson, GM of Developer Evangelism at Microsoft, stated that "Microsoft is proud to be a sponsor of ‘The Future of Personalized Healthcare.’ We're excited to support healthtech entrepreneurs who are taking Health as a Service from imagined possibility to imminent reality."

The conference is sponsored by Microsoft, Qualcomm, and SCVSoft. It will be held at the Sobrato Center for Nonprofits in Redwood Shores, CA. The conference will begin at 12 pm, and conclude at 6 pm.
