International Business Forum presents a full-day conference on innovation in consumer health. From the event site:
“Rapidly rising healthcare costs have led consumers to take an active role in making decisions about their health. This radical shift has presented a growth sector for investing, partnering and commercialization as consumers are choosing innovative, alternative approaches to the traditional models of healthcare.
Innovation trends such as personal medical devices, social media platforms and nutritional food products, offer unprecedented ways of engaging consumers to incorporate these wellness solutions in their daily routine. Consumer product companies, insurance companies and provider organizations are refocusing their strategies and rebranding themselves to serve the emerging healthcare consumer.
The inaugural Consumer Health & Wellness Innovation Summit, that took place February 9th at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, CA, was an unlike any other event as it brought together industry professionals from across the health and wellness spectrum to address the evolution of healthcare to a consumer-directed market.
The 2nd Annual Consumer Health & Wellness Innovation Summit, taking place June 11th at the Omni Hotel, San Francisco, CA, will take a deeper look into the consumer health & wellness ecosystem, identifying major innovation trends and emerging business models surfacing in the direct-to-consumer arena. Attendees will walk away with strategic information, marketplace opportunities and new approaches to maximize revenue potential
