More than a few of you may have heard me say this in-person lately, but I think it may be true: The most lucrative sector in mobile health today just might be the events business. Events are literally on top of each other this fall. Here are the ones MobiHealthNews will be attending as well as a few other events of note.
FNIH mHealth Summit: Washington, DC. Given the announcement this week that William Henry “Bill” Gates III will be keynoting the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health’s mHealth Summit in November, it’s worth discussing this one upfront. Gates joins media mogul and UN Foundation financier Ted Turner as a keynote speaker of the increasingly prestigious event. MobiHealthNews is proud to be the official media sponsor of the event — we’re also running a concurrent session track. Be sure to let us know if you’re interested. Register here
HIMSS Health Insurers Innovation Forum: Dubai, UAE. This week MobiHealthNews interviewed a true mover and shaker in the mobile health industry, Kenneth Seymens. Seymens is putting together an event in Dubai focused on the Middle East region’s adoption of HIT technology, including mobile health. It happens to be the same day as the FNIH mHealth Summit: November 8. Register here
mHealth Conference & Expo: Dubai, UAE. Speaking of Dubai, MobiHealthNews will be making the trip out in September to attend Clarion Event’s mHealth Conference, which features a number of international mobile operators and care providers. I’ll be chairing part of the event. Register here
2nd Annual International Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit: London, UK. Shortly after the Dubai event, we’ll be heading to London to speak at Informa’s mobile health event, which had a strong UK and European focus last year. The UK’s NHS was well-represented last year and we expect the event to broader its speaker roster for its second annual. Register here
Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance – Wireless Health 2010: San Diego, CA. As many in the wireless health industry know, the WLSA puts on a good event. Their Wireless Health 2010 looks to continue that tradition with an academic and research focused stable of speakers for their October event. Register here
MobiHealthNews Presents: Everywhere Healthcare: San Francisco, CA. We will be once again producing a one-day event at the CTIA Enterprise & Apps conference this fall. Unfortunately, our event falls on the same day as the WLSA conference. Silicon Valley healthcare locals and other wireless industry execs will be joining us for a compelling afternoon of panel discussions and presentation focused on a variety of pressing mHealth issues. Register here (ALL CTIA attendees are welcome to Everywhere Healthcare)
Partners HealthCare’s 2010 Connected Health Symposium: Boston, MA: There’s no place like home for the MobiHealthNews team and Partners HealthCare has always done a fantastic job of bringing the connected health industry to Boston. I’m excited to moderate a panel for the first time at this must-attend event. If you’ll be in town for the event, be sure to drop me a note. Register here
While seemingly exhaustive, this list is just the beginning. I enjoyed speaking at and attending the Healthcare Unbound event in San Diego a few weeks ago and also participating in the World Congress Mobile Health event in Boston last week. There’s still many more upcoming get togethers: Check out our events list to your right for other mobile health-related events this year.
In all likelihood: See you soon.
