We are barely a month out from Qualcomm Life’s annual Connect 2013 conference that will take place August 5th – 8th in San Diego at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
Last year’s Qualcomm Life customer summit was so successful that for 2013 we are expanding the conference to 2 1/2 days in order to provide attendees with more networking opportunities, more thought provoking presentations and more conversations aimed at driving innovation and discovery in the always-evolving world of wireless health.
As you may have heard, this year we are starting off fresh with a new agenda, laser-focused on how the most innovative mHealth companies in the Qualcomm Life Ecosystem are collecting, transmitting, aggregating and visualizing biometric data to create entirely new health service offerings. Connect 2013 aims to highlight the current state of wireless health, where it’s heading, and how we can maximize growth and connectivity within the space to further increase care accessibility and decrease the costs of health management.
I cannot think of a better place to gather for an insightful discussion on this topic than here in San Diego, and I’m not just talking about the coveted Southern California weather. With over 3,000[i] wireless companies and 600[ii] life sciences (biotech) companies based in this city, San Diego has become the hub of the wireless health industry.
You can expect to meet the leaders comprising our global Qualcomm Life Ecosystem collaborators, including executives from medical device, analytics, health services, chronic disease management and pharmaceutical companies. We also have an exceptional line up of speakers confirmed including Dr. Eric Topol, Professor of Genomics, The Scripps Research Institute, Amir Rubin, CEO of Stanford Hospital & Clinics and our very own Paul Jacobs, CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated. The agenda can be found at the Connect 2013 website.
Personally, I am really looking forward to showing you how Qualcomm Life is working to transform health data around the world, and I cannot wait to hear your perspectives and ideas.
