Stanford Medicine X is an exciting new conference that will show you how emerging technologies will reshape the practice of medicine, right from the front lines of Silicon Valley. The conference will take place on the campus of Stanford University September 28-30, 2012.
We are proud to partner with Medgadget, one of the official media partners of Stanford Medicine X, to provide its readers with a special access program to attend our event.

When you attend Medicine X, you’ll get an unmatched opportunity to meet and network with world leaders driving the convergence of technology and medicine.
Here are just some of the questions that will be answered at Medicine X:
The Networked Patient: How has social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube transformed patients into active engaged participants in their own care? How will physicians need to adapt their practices to meet the needs and expectations of these patients?
mHealth and Gamification: Small, inexpensive consumer-oriented devices that measure and track health, such as metabolism, heart rate, and physical activity are becoming more common. How are people using these devices to track their own health? How can games be harnessed to encourage healthy behaviors?
Design Thinking: How will patient-centered design reshape the healthcare experience and the delivery of care?
And, if you’d like to try your hand at solving a patient-centered design problem, we’re also offering a “once-in-a-lifetime” chance to participate in a small-group workshop to learn the IDEO design process from IDEO designers at the IDEO world headquarters in Palo Alto, California, as part of our IDEO Design Challenge Workshop.
Medicine X is an academic conference for everyone. We hope to see you in September!
