CONVERGE Summit for Healthcare Innovation

This summer, anyone with a vested interest in healthcare will get the chance to engage in discussion, debate and brainstorming with some of the industry’s most forward-thinking executives and innovators. Pfizer’s head of clinical innovation will talk about Big Pharma’s transition in a new era for medicine, the chief innovation officer of Children’s Hospital Boston will outline a vision of telemedicine, and a vice president from Medtronic will discuss how the digital health movement can best serve the medical device industry. It’s all happening at the first ever CONVERGE summit for healthcare innovation on July 10 at The Hyatt at The Bellevue in Philadelphia, Pa.
