Healthcare Technology Event in San Diego

Jun. 2 2014
Achieve Internet

Health IT MeetUp Co-Hosted by Achieve Health and Pillsbury

The healthcare sector is undergoing transformational growth and change, which presents a vast number of new opportunities within the industry and especially here in San Diego.  The most notable area of growth and the one that clearly can be seen here in San Diego is on the technology side. The Healthcare IT market has exploded and is expected to continue its upward growth by 65% over the next 5 years.

San Diego offers a unique composition of leaders in the software engineering sector and world-renowned health delivery systems, medical research facilities, medical device manufacturers, mobile health and life sciences innovators. At the confluence of these industries there is a robust Healthcare IT innovation scene here in San Diego. There are a number of promising local groups and organizations focused on Health IT, yet given the vast resources and world-class technology institutions; San Diego lacks the people network that could elevate the region to another level.

Our goal with our series of Healthcare IT Innovation events is to get people together and talking. We aim to put thought leaders, subject matter experts and industry professionals into the same room to generate new ideas and to encourage new innovations. Our events will do this through inspiring and thought provoking discussions based around the technology being used and the needed improvements to drive patient engagement, improve the delivery of care and reduce system wide costs.

We want to solidify San Diego as the place for Health IT advancement. Our first event will put us on the track to do just that. We will have a great group of panelists and we will be discussing how Open Source Software (OSS) is benefiting the healthcare industry. Additionally, we will dive into the ways in which technology can provide an even larger benefit to the sector with a wider adoption of cutting edge applications.  Our panel will discuss how they’re leveraging OSS to significantly improve system wide interoperability by extending legacy IT systems, which provides huge cost savings by avoiding IT disruption costs that come from replacing pre-existing software.

Our panelists will include:

Thomas Hall, Senior Marketing Manager at Dexcom
William O’Connor, Chief Technology Officer at Achieve Internet
Cody Johansen, Technical Operations Manager at SD Health Connect
