linking healthcare, technology + design

Exciting news from Essential! Next week, we’ll be hosting Essential Threads: linking healthcare, technology + design at the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center. The first of its kind, this event was created to bolster collaboration, conversation and most importantly, action within Boston’s innovation community.  

The inaugural event will examine the convergence of existing and emerging technologies and trends, and their impact on the design of healthcare systems, experiences and products. Speakers from across the healthcare spectrum, from patient-to-patient information sharing to chronic disease management among other topics, will share their perspectives and insights, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Editor and Co-founder of MobiHealthNews, Brian Dolan. The esteemed group of speakers we’ll be hosting include Dr. John Moore from the New Media Medicine Group at MIT Media Lab , Jeremy Gilbert, Head of Commercial Product at PatientsLikeMe, Anand Iyer, President and COO of WellDoc and Bill Hartman, Director of Research at Essential.

Hear what some of leading organizations in the industry are up to. Add your perspective and be part of the conversation at the event that’s sure to inspire and inform.
