There are several digital health events happening in Massachusetts this December and each has something for everyone: startups, investors, job seekers, academics, you name it. In 2020, keep an eye on the Mass Digital Health events calendar to find more industry events – and discover why the world comes to Massachusetts for healthcare innovation. 

Healthcare Security Forum

December 9-10
Westin Copley Place, Boston

Healthcare information security breaches now happen at least once per day, according to HIPAA Journal. That rate isn’t showing signs of slowing down—patient data records now fetch more than credit card accounts on black markets. As the industry embeds tech into healthcare workflows and connects more medical devices, gaps in security are putting organizations at greater risk.

On December 9-10, attend the Healthcare Security Forum to understand how to prepare for the emerging threats in this area, learn how to maximize existing security, and get a peek at some of the most highly regarded healthcare security programs in use today.


Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit

December 9-10
Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Boston

The Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit (DHIS) unites the investors, entrepreneurs, providers, payers, and industry leaders who are developing the digital tools that create new therapies and deliver more efficient – and effective – care to patients.
