Spring 2018 Newsletter - AI and Precision Medicine Top This Year’s Innovation Conference and Showcase

By Lauren Mock, Innovation Committee Chair

With over 200 in attendance, our sixth Innovation Conference and Showcase at the Intel Auditorium in Santa Clara was a tremendous success. A stellar array of thought leaders explored how topics such as Artificial Intelligence and Precision Medicine are maturing and their impact on patient care, and how the advancements made by technology leaders in non-healthcare industries can positively impact the healthcare ecosystem.

This year’s conference addressed four main topics:

  • Precision Medicine - the challenges and opportunities of shifting from a one size fit all approach to personalized treatments.
  • Artificial Intelligence - will the hype live up to the expectations?
  • Public and Private Partnerships - examples of public and private entities joining forces in the name of innovation.
  • Beyond Healthcare - what lessons on innovation can healthcare gain from other industries?

Our keynotes and panels presented perspectives from inside and outside healthcare on how innovative thinking can be applied to clinical and consumer workflows, and to healthcare delivery systems.

A huge thank you to our sponsors for helping us put on this event -- Intel, Add on Data, Sirius Healthcare, Deloitte, Oxford, Net App, covermymeds, Entisys360, servicenow, Connection, Allstar Networks, UC Davis Health, California Cancer Registry, and TEK Systems.

Planning for the next ICS is underway, and we anticipate it exceeding this year’s best ever. See you at next year’s 7th Annual Innovation Conference and Showcase!
