MIT Sloan Healthcare and BioInnovations Conference 2020

Patient-Centric Medicine: Improving Care Delivery Through Novel Treatments, Personalization, and System Optimization
February 28, 2020

Join us for the 18th annual MIT Sloan Healthcare and BioInnovations Conference (SHBC) on February 28, 2019 at the MIT Media Lab as we explore Patient-Centric Medicine: Improving Care Delivery Through Novel Treatments, Personalization, and System Optimization.

Patient-centricity is evolving the way we think about monitoring, diagnosing, and delivering healthcare. With the increased importance of approaches that better incorporate the real-life experience of patients, healthcare is faced with an influx of questions and challenges including:

  * How do we translate our understanding of the complex biology of chronic diseases and the complex day-to-day experience of patients into treatments that can make real impact?
  * How do we leverage digital technologies to enable these decisions in a way that is both scientifically rigorous and realistic?
  * What are the challenges to enabling access of these potential therapies across both developed and emerging markets?

This conference will look to provide perspectives from across the healthcare landscape that shed light on how thought leaders are tackling these issues to shape the future of medicine.

As an attendee, you will enjoy hearing from 30+ speakers, panelists and keynotes from industry luminaries to serial entrepreneurs. You will also have the opportunity to see MIT's most promising start-ups compete for $20K+ in prize money, learn about cutting edge research, and form connections across the broader healthcare community.
