Health Technology Forum (HTF) will hold the sixth annual Innovation Conference at the Stanford School Of Medicine on May 1-2, 2017, highlighting health and wellness enhancements made possible through technology and implementation of key health policies and strategies.

The two day conference includes keynote speakers, panels, demos, workshops, and an expo that focus on important use-cases demonstrating barriers and break-throughs impacting healthcare delivery for underserved and underrepresented communities. HTF’s unique panels will explore how Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Reality (VR), and other transformative technologies can positively affect the health care issues facing communities such as undocumented immigrants, the elderly, women, substance abuse sufferers, and mental health patients.

HTF is proud to provide three new exciting programs for conference attendees this year:

  • Healthy Aging Challenge presented by DesignMap: All conference attendees can apply to join a hyper-fast-paced 2 hour workshop lead by design experts to answer the question: “How might we use AI to encourage elderly patients to take the medications on time?”
  • Innovation Showcase: An exclusive networking session connecting startups and the investment community to develop strategic partnerships.
  • Continuing Education Credit (CE): Attendees will have the option to receive highly specialized accreditation to bolster your educational and professional needs.

These new programs, in concert with a diverse speaker and attendee demographic that includes health providers, entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policy makers, physicians, and academics, provide unparalleled value for our attendees and sponsors.

“This year’s conference promises to be exciting and thought provoking as the pace of ideas in the health technology space is quickly accelerating,” says HTF founder Pronoy Saha. “It’s especially an honor to bring our community to Stanford on our 6th year anniversary where more than 80 speakers will take the stage.”

The conference’s strong mix of content and stakeholders in the healthtech community has attracted top thought leaders in the industry, highlighted by closing keynotes with Vinod Khosla (Khosla Ventures) and Neil Jordan (Microsoft) with press attendance from Aarti Shahani (NPR).

“Looking forward to being part of this collaborative gathering of key innovators and thought leaders from across the medical and health spectrum. How often do we see key players from such diverse ecosystems as innovation medicine, health, AI technology, philanthropy and the investment community working together towards common goals for the common good?” commented Dennis Robbins, PHD, MPH, who is a person-centric strategic advisor for government and NGOs.
