What can you expect to see at Health 2.0 San Diego?
Companies and creative leaders who are pushing the curve on innovation to tackle three major challenges of our time in health care: prevention, wellness, and the role of food; the user-driven disruption of traditional clinical research; and how smart technology and service design canlower the cost of healthcare. All with the audience mix and engaging format that only a Health 2.0 conference can deliver!
San Diego 2011
Following our biggest and highest rated Fall Conference ever, Health 2.0 announces its Spring Fling for 2011. Following trips to Boston and Paris in our two previous Spring Conferences, we’re returning to the scene of our first Spring Fling in 2008 — San Diego.
Monday – Tuesday, March 21-22, 2011
Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, La Jolla, CA
- – Just 15 minutes from the San Diego Airport! – -
Many things have changed since 2008, but the concept of having specific themes at Health 2.0 spring conferences has not. And this year so much is going on in the world of innovation in health care that at the 2011 edition we’ll be focused on three related themes. All three of these themes are essential for the future of health care and Heath 2.0 technologies and services will profoundly impact all three.
The themes are:
- Making health care cheaper
- The evolution of research
- Prevention, wellness, exercise & food
For each theme we’ll be showcasing new technologies, new services, and new partnerships, as well as catching up with leaders in health care, and Health 2.0. And all of these themes will be critical to the Health 2.0 community helping the heath care system evolve in a positive direction.
But that’s not all.
We’ll also be showcasing winners of the newest set of challenges from the online Health 2.0 Developer Challenge. And in the run-up to the Spring Conference, Health 2.0 will be announcing a series of very exciting regional code-a-thons around the United States focused on the themes of the San Diego conference, from low cost innovation, to childhood obesity and to the collaboration between researchers and developers. Stay tuned for the announcement about the code-a-thon series timeline and our partnering hosts – a code-a-thon might just be coming to your city! And yes, you’ll see the winners of those Code-a-thons featured on stage, along with our usual mix of demos, brief keynotes and engaging panels–not to mention a sparkling opening night party overlooking the sea.
