The World Medical Innovation Forum is a global gathering of more than 1,200 senior health care leaders hosted by Partners HealthCare in the heart of Boston. It was established to respond to the intensifying transformation of health care and its impact on innovation. The Forum is rooted in the belief that no matter the magnitude of that change, the center of health care needs to be a shared, fundamental commitment to collaborative innovation – industry and academia working together to improve patient lives.
The 2016 World Medical Innovation Forum will feature the newest technologies to diagnose, treat and manage cancer.
Top entrepreneurs, CEOs, investors, clinicians and scientists will gather in Boston this spring to share perspectives on the newest cancer therapies, cutting-edge diagnostics and unmet needs. Featured speakers will include CEOs of global companies including Novartis, BMS, Amgen, AbbVie, and dozens more, Harvard Medical School-appointed clinicians and investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, as well as senior investors and high-profile journalists—in total, more than 100 cancer experts will participate as speakers.
The World Medical Innovation Forum will be held April 25–27 at the Westin Copley Place Boston Hotel. Partners HealthCare initiated this annual event to solidify a shared, fundamental commitment to collaborative innovation in which industry and academia work together to improve patient lives.
