This invitation-only event connects market-ready tech companies with prospective healthcare clients looking to evaluate and implement vetted technologies and integrate these solutions into their organizations. Hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and payors will meet with hand-picked digital health companies that address their prioritized initiatives. The 2017 program matched 25 top healthcare organizations with 18 tech companies that fit their needs, through over 70 curated sales meetings.
