ACHE of Massachusetts Fall Conference

A Forum on Healthcare Innovation

This conference will bring together thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and providers from across the healthcare industry to share how they are re-engineering healthcare delivery.  With estimates by the Urban Institute suggesting national health spending is on to track reach $4 trillion by 2019, healthcare is looking to solutions that transformed other industries ranging from finance and commerce to transportation. 

Armed with the latest technologies including wearable devices and telehealth, as well as advanced analytics and contemporary approaches to healthcare delivery, innovators are boldly revolutionizing our industry.  At the same time, innovators won’t discover the right solutions to pain points in our delivery system without first completely understanding its problems. 

The Forum on Healthcare Innovation will not simply showcase the slickest gadgets and the newest start-up companies, but rather create a forum for providers, payers, consultants, and vendors to come together and explore how innovation can promote better care for patients at lower costs.
