The World Medical Innovation Forum, hosted by Partners HealthCare, is a global gathering of more than 1,000 senior health care leaders in the heart of Boston. It was established to respond to the intensifying transformation of health care and its impact on innovation. The Forum is rooted in the belief that no matter the magnitude of that change, the center of health care needs to be a shared, fundamental commitment to collaborative innovation – industry and academia working together to improve patient lives. The World Medical Innovation Forum focuses on the advancements and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence.
This year’s event will bring together industry-leading CEOs, Partners’ HIT experts, investor and deal makers as they share perspectives on how cognitive computation, machine learning, and big data are having a transformative impact on patient care. International experts will be joined by attendees from the senior ranks of the information technology, life science, pharmaceutical, government and health care investment communities, as well as top Partners HealthCare, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Spaulding Hospital and McLean Hospital faculty and staff.
Forum keynoters will include the CEOs of NVIDIA, Novartis, Nuance, Vertex, Philips, Siemens Healthcare GNS Healthcare, Wolters Kluwer Health and dozens of top investors, emerging company CEOs, and senior Harvard faculty. Be part of the conversation – see how experts are driving AI into every facet of health care.
In addition to examining the cutting-edge issues in the field, the Forum will feature presentations from emerging investigators called First Look, the Discovery Café, and the “Disruptive Dozen-12 emerging technologies with the potential to revolutionize the selected field over the next decade.
As more and more data permeate medical practice, the care of patients has become vastly more complex. This era of so-called “big data”, while holding enormous promise for improving patient health, has also created big challenges that are straining the healthcare system. Artificial intelligence, or AI, offers a way to tame this massive complexity through computer algorithms that can think and learn much like a human, and approach — sometimes even exceed — the levels of human intelligence. The potential impact of AI on healthcare is significant, with $450 billion projected in annual savings (out of $3 trillion in annual healthcare costs), and a $1,000 annual reduction in medical costs for every man, woman and child. Learn how this rapidly growing market is poised for creative disruption in healthcare, including more rapid diagnoses, innovative new treatments, reducing medical errors, and much more.
