CES 2017 | JANUARY 5-8, 2017

The digital revolution is reshaping our world as quickly as you can revise a document with a search and replace feature. Click. A rule that held us to the old way of doing things vanishes. Click. There goes another. With each new day, digital gives us an open, boundless space to do what we do best: Rewrite our future.

 

Digital is quickly replacing the old rules of healthcare, too. It’s erasing the old boundaries between stakeholders. It’s rechanneling the flow of medical data. It’s enhancing healthcare providers’ decision-making. Even the notion of Digital Health might very soon rewrite its own name to erase an unnecessary word. When digital fully revises the story of healthcare, this may be called, more simply, health.

 

The most innovative minds in the industry are convening to offer you the first glimpse at tomorrow’s breakthroughs, so mark your calendars, book your trip and strap yourself in for what promises to be a mind blowing experience!

 

What will the new rules look like? You’ll find out here, before they’re even written.

2016: THE  HIGHLIGHTS

We had an incredible summit at CES 2016, and now the most anticipated summit of the year that combined healthcare and technology in a truly revolutionary conference is at your fingertips!

The Digital Health Summit pushed attendees to think bigger, explore innovative ways to tackle new problems and continue to challenge one another to improve health and wellness outcomes.

Sandra Peterson, Group Worldwide Chairman from Johnson & Johnson, brought together key partners from WellDoc and Microsoft to showcase how partnership will transform outcomes, reduce costs, and increase access.

NY Times Best Selling Authors, Deepak Chopra & Dr. Rudolph Tanzi were interviewed by USA Today Journalist on their latest book, Super Genes, sharing how digital health has allowed us to understand how we can live healthier lives.

Validic announced VitalSnap, new mobile technology enabling real-time health data transfer from non-connected devices to healthcare organizations.

Pathway Genomics and IBM Watson announced the Pathway Genomics OME (personalized health) app combining Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities with precision medicine and genetics information to give users a more personal, in-depth look at their health.

AARP released their new study, Caregiving Innovation Frontiers, aimed at addressing the current and future needs of caregivers and those needing care, as well as identifying key business opportunities and in-demand solutions sought after by participants in this growing marketplace.

Otsuka Pharmaceuticals convened world-renowned experts from Cleveland Clinic, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and AARP to discuss the real-world challenges caregivers for Alzheimer’s face. They launched at the Summit a program to engage health tech innovators to develop tangible solutions with their hands-on guidance.

Fast Company rated Sleep Number’s IT bed one of the 7 best ideas at CES. Sleep Number built sleep measurement into a piece of furniture that will learn from your sleep patterns, and then sync up with your smart home to improve them. (For example: If you sleep better when it’s cold, your bed will tell your Nest thermostat to turn down the temperature).
