As you map out your communication and marketing goals for 2020, keep this roster of MedCity healthcare innovation events in mind.
It has been another busy year for M&A in health tech and life sciences, from Allscripts acquisition of specialty drug platform ZappRx, UnitedHealth Group’s purchase of PatientsLikeMe, JP Morgan’s acquisition of medical billing business InstaMed, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s deal to buy Celgene and Google’s acquisition of Fitbit.
The interest in tools to support social determinants of health to improve patient access to healthier dietary options and transport to their appointments has increased as payers and providers see them as a way to help people manage chronic conditions and reduce the need for emergency hospitalization.
Where will strategic investors prioritize investments in 2020? Which healthcare and life science startups will generate buzz next year? What needs to happen for artificial intelligence in healthcare and life sciences to gain wider adoption? What are some of the collaborations that will help advance population health?
As you mull over those questions, we would encourage you to include these MedCity events in your planning as you review where to allocate your sponsorship and advertising budget in 2020. They also offer fantastic opportunities to take part in conversations around vital topics in healthcare, hear pitches from exciting healthcare startups and, of course, network.
