This event is a "pre-conference" before Swedish's 2010 Health Care Symposium. While the Symposium focuses on Innovation in the Era of Health Care Reform, this pre-conference is dedicated to exploring innovation in health care - in the age of social media. You will hear from an e-patient as well as physicians, who will paint a realistic picture of social media in health care today. They'll also share their wish list and give us a sneak peak at potential opportunities and future innovations.
