2018 HTF Innovation Conference

Come Together For Health™


154d 3h 34m 0s

Conference Overview 01

The 7th Annual Health Technology Forum Innovation Conference is a two day conference that will explore the latest innovations in improving outcomes in three key areas: healthy aging and resilience, next generation engagement, and innovative tools and technologies for behavioral health. Attendees across diverse disciplines will convene with a shared goal to accelerate bringing solutions to market for acute pain points in these areas.

For example: How can AR/VR transform therapies administered for those suffering from anxiety or PTSD? How can technology aid or emulate the emotional and physical support of a high touch caregiver? How can we use AI, robots, smart clothing, or animation to promote long lasting engagement instead of solely focusing on adherence? .

Conference Agenda 02

experiMental: Tools to Help People in Mental and Behavioral Health

Individuals with mental and behavioral health disorders are a severely underserved, and often overlooked, community in healthcare. By utilizing technology to increase the awareness of mental health issues and stimulate innovation, more individuals can gain access to life-changing resources to better manage their mental health. Innovative technologies will also help providers more effectively engage and serve their mental health patients.

Featured panel: “How AR/VR is bringing change for behavioral health”

Next Generation Engagement

Empowering each of us through information, technologies, devices, support systems, and mobile solutions are a great way to initiate the process of behavioral change. True engagement and behavior change require continuously available, real-time, personalized and targeted nudging that is distinctive and meaningful to that person. The right tools and technologies for the right person at the right time can help create a culture of health and optimize care.

Featured panel: “Moving Beyond Illness and Disease to a Culture of Health”

Healthy Aging and Resilience

Health is a skill whose excellence is acquired over time with appropriate help, guidance, and oversight. Technology allows us to monitor health conditions and promote and sustain health in the home, clinic, and workplace to add years to our lives and life to our years.

Featured panel: “Caught in the Middle: Technology helping or hindering caregivers“
