Steering Committe Selected for HealthTech Day at OneMedForum SF 2011

trayCombing the newest information technology and healthcare ideas to create products that help reduce costs and allows more patient control is one reason why Health Tech is one of the fastest growing sectors in the life science, and healthcare industry.  This rapidly advancing market is why OneMedPlace has selected the topic of Health Technology as a special session at this year’s conference, on January 13th.   The Health Technology Session is part of the OneMedForum’s three-day conference, held January 11th-13th in San Francisco, which runs concurrent to the JP Morgan conference.

The format of the Health Tech session is panel based.  The first panel, The Provider as a System, focuses on the changing role of clinics and hospitals.   It will highlight how clinics and hospitals are using new information management and technology to change and develop their business structure.  Panel discussions will include topics from responding to the latest regulatory changes to what is the meaning of accountable care organization.

The second panel, The Patient as Consumer, is designed to explore the patient/consumer in the delivery of healthcare.  This topic will focus on how the role of the patient and the healthcare system is developing into more transparent, patient centered care.  Discussion topics during this panel with include how the individuals are starting to demand greater control of developing their own healthcare plane, as well as a how the employer and corporation is changing the delivery of healthcare.  Presentations from companies with innovative product ideas for each of these panel topics will follow after both panel discussions.
