How do we create the future of health? That’s the question HLTH is seeking to answer.
From Oct. 27-30, more than 5,000 executives, investors and entrepreneurs will converge in Las Vegas at the largest health innovation conference in the U.S.
Through 18 thematic tracks and over 100 sessions, conference attendees will learn about the latest advances in health sciences, technology, care services and investing.
These sessions will feature over 300 speakers, who will discuss how they are addressing key healthcare issues. Among their specialties are precision medicine, digital therapeutics and drugless therapies, and the use of voice, artificial intelligence and virtual reality for improving diagnosis, treatment and health management.
HLTH’s speaker lineup features CEOs, founders and investors from leading organizations focused on health transformation, including CVS Health, Kaiser Permanente, Google, Amazon, Lyft, 23andMe, Pfizer and more.
In addition to industry insights, the conference provides a number of networking opportunities for health entrepreneurs.
HLTH’s Funding Founders program connects health startups to leading healthcare investors through seven-minute “speed-dating” style meetings. Participating investors include Andreesen Horowitz, GV, Cigna Ventures, Arboretum Ventures, Comcast Ventures, Digitalis, Menlo Ventures and other top venture capital and private equity firms.
“HLTH affords startups with an unparalleled opportunity to form key relationships with investors, and facilitates investors in identifying the latest innovations, meet the greatest disrupters and hear from the most ambitious leaders driving transformations across the industry,” Jonathan Weiner, CEO and founder of HLTH, told Karma.
Matching Sellers and Buyers
Startups will also be able to exhibit and participate in HLTH’s Hosted Buyer Program, where founders are matched with qualified buyers seeking to purchase health solutions for their organizations.
Conference attendees will also have access to HLTH’s variety of networking programs, roundtables and events. These include curated meetups, such as Table Talks, in which groups of qualified attendees discuss a particular health concern; and Tech Talks, which are six-minute presentations from HLTH sponsors showcasing the latest in health technology.
Additionally, HLTH has launched WOMEN at HLTH, a program that highlights the low percentage of female leaders in the health industry.
“The health industry has significant room for improvement in promoting and supporting women executives,” Weiner said. “Through mentorship, matchmaking, thematic content and informal networking programs and events, WOMEN at HLTH will pave paths for the entire industry to participate in achieving parity in leadership roles in healthcare and health tech.”
Attendees will be able to participate in several WOMEN at HLTH programs, including Get On Board: Break into the Boardroom, which will match pre-qualified female executives seeking boardroom positions with companies looking to add board members. Participants can also sign HLTH’s ParityPledge™, which asks health organizations to commit to interviewing and considering at least one qualified woman for every open C-suite role.
HLTH is a leading event for the healthcare industry and is a strategic partner of Karma.
