medicine x 2015 by the numbers:
Xponential Impact | September 12 to September 18, 2016
At Medicine X 2016 we will meet the innovators who are disrupting health care throughout the globe. We will see the emerging technologies of today and learn how they will impact the health care we deliver and receive tomorrow.
We will explore the drivers of change through organizational leadership and creative collaboration outside of health care’s traditional silos.
We will be inspired by moonshot thinking and learn how to grow pockets of excellence and innovation to large-scale change. We will experience empathy and compassion. We will gain an understanding of the problems that matter most in health care.
Be ready to use what you learn at Medicine X to create a shared vision of collaborative and participatory medicine of tomorrow.
Everyone Included™ is a framework for health care innovation, implementation and transformation based on principles of mutual respect and inclusivity. It is the culmination of six years of co-creation with a diverse group of health care stakeholders at Stanford Medicine X that has resulted in a series of design and leadership principles intended to drive collaborative health care innovation efforts.
For one week in September, Northern California becomes home to the world’s premier gathering of patients, providers, researchers, designers and technologists who are leading disruptive innovation in health care. A series of world-class programs, workshops and events begin on Monday and culminate on Friday with the start of Stanford Medicine X – an Everyone Included™ event and the most-discussed academic medical conference in the world.
