Early Stage companies in healthcare need momentum to succeed. Where do they get it? Like a wave, it usually starts with Patients and Providers saying, “That’s Awesome!” Next a Partnership or Pilot will be begun to test it out on a larger scale. Finally, investors and the rest of the healthcare system will start adopting the idea and you have Massive Growth. In our schedule you will find companies and leaders that are at different points in this generative cycle whereby many small things lead to big things. The Momentum talks will elucidate, educate, engage and inspire us all with insights from those who have done amazing things. Artistic performances will capture the imagination and spark creativity. And all day long you will hear from patients, providers, partners, institutional leaders, and investors that make Momentum happen in healthcare. Join us for #MedMo16 and ride the wave of Momentum. Surfs up!
