Robotics, accelerators, startups, apps and regulations…the roadmap for the future of healthcare is turning into a crowded highway. How can businesses take advantage of the burgeoning digital health sector without making a wrong turn?  Living in Digital Times’ Digital Health Summer Summit is designed to foster healthy business outcomes by giving attendees the opportunity to connect with others in their industry, understand the full spectrum of issues, share business intelligence, and get hands on workshop experience, all in an intimate and candid environment.

Now in its third year, Digital Health Summer Summit is moving to San Francisco to be right in the heart of the thriving digital health industry and be among today’s brightest technology and life sciences start-ups and entrepreneurs. Registration is open for pre-summit bootcamps and summit sessions which take place at the Terra Gallery, June 18-20, 2014.  

“Digital Health Summer Summit offers a unique forum for entrepreneurs, key industry players and others to cross-pollinate ideas, get to the core of the industry’s most pressing questions and understand every element of a successful venture,” said Jill Gilbert, summit producer.

For the first time, Digital Health Summer Summit will host three pre-summit, hands-on bootcamps to help attendees navigate their way to a successful digital health venture.  Experts will equip attendees with unique strategies, resources, how-tos and more that will inspire the next generation of innovation. The can’t miss bootcamps include:

Rise of the Machines – Leading robotics business advisor and startup evangelist, Andra Keay, will offer a deep dive into the surging business of robotics and what it will take to succeed in a market expected to reach $46 billion by 2017.

Product Development Lab – Join Ximedica, a leading healthcare product development accelerator, as they guide attendees through the intricate product development process – what works and what doesn’t – helping set the stage for success.

Startups Transforming Healthcare – Join experts and frontline leaders from the ONC and leading accelerator Rock Health as they  help entrepreneurs understand the rapidly changing healthcare landscape and how they can utilize best practices to usher the industry forward.

 The bootcamps will be followed by a two-day summit offering four main areas of focus:  helping businesses understand the entire roadmap to product development and success, strategies for changing consumer behavior and how to reach consumers in the smartest way, finding and building crucial partnerships, and discovering key opportunities and growth potential .  A few of the highlights include:

Digital Health at Warp Speed - Join Joe Flower, one of the most important healthcare futurists of our time, for a provocative one-on-one conversation with Forbes Magazine Contributor and avid digital health enthusiast, Dan Munro.

Innovations from Scratch – In a first-of-its-kind look at what the key essentials of success are, we’ll hear high profile CEOS who share both success and “almost famous” stories about their failed ventures.  Both scenarios are worthy of scrutiny.

Building Killer Partnerships – Take a deep dive into three model case studies inviting each side of the partnership to share their insights:

MC10 & Reebok
IBM Watson & Welltok
Humetrix & VA

“Not only will the summit touch on all the hot-button issues in digital health, but attendees will also take away valuable insight as to how to shape the industry moving forward,” said Robin Raskin, founder of Living in Digital Times.
