Garfield Group Presents “Tech Waves Transforming Healthcare” Panel At Philly Tech Week Posted by Larry Garfield Apr 08 2016 All We get excited about Philly Tech Week every year. It offers us the perfect reason to geek out over technology in the Philadelphia region with a particular emphasis on something else we love - innovation. Last year, we wrote about our learnings from Philly Tech Week’s “The Future of Interactive Marketing” session. The year before, we posted a roundup of the events we attended with a nod to Philly Tech Week’s ability to connect people to the latest-and-greatest in tech. But this year, we’re doing Philly Tech Week like never before. We’re hosting an event called “Tech Waves Transforming Healthcare” on Thursday, May 5th, from 10:30am to 12:00pm at the offices of Picwell: 2200 Arch Street in Center City. Our President, Larry Garfield, will moderate a panel featuring some of the brightest minds who live at the intersection of healthcare + innovation. We’ll explore some of the challenges facing the $2 trillion healthcare industry - like consumerism and security - and discuss innovative strategies such as the use of big data and analytics to improve patient care while reducing costs.
