MedX has transformed "patient-centered" from a buzzword into a way of thinking and collaborating.
The finely orchestrated Medicine X program amazed me. The team was poised, accessible, and proactive. Dr. Chu is a perfectionist who surrounds himself with other perfectionists.
MedX has stolen my heart. The feeling of physically being in the same space with others who are passionate and inspiring is truly awesome. Awestruck.
Medicine X was the first medical conference I attended that included patients. It totally changed my perspective and enriched by practice.
This conference has immediately inspired a change in career trajectory and lit a fire within me to learn how I can build and design patient-centered health care solutions.
From the outside, #MedX can seem like a happy place where everyone agrees on the betterment of health care–but it thrives most with difficult topics and people who care enough to challenge the status quo.
The Medicine X conference has a strong sub-theme of design and patient-centered focus. It's my absolute favorite and most impactful medical and health conference.
There is no other conference that let's you get so close, and so personal to the end-users of your technology.
Medicine X is a collection of the most visionary, passionate people from all corners of health care.
Medicine X is a unique blend of patient voices and medical perspectives. The discussions are real and sometimes raw.
Attending Medicine X brings you into an active community of people who are driven in ways that attendees of most conferences are not.
By immersing myself in the Medicine X culture and vision of how design, research, and entrepreneurship can be integrated into technology, I was inspired to build 11health.
I won't just take information, ideas and contacts away with me–we are sharing them all online! I expect the new ideas and contacts fostered here will continue to grow and be nurtured long after Medicine X.
The conference was transformative, enlightening, hugely inspiring and more complete than I could have imagined.
This is the best organized conference I've attended in my life!
Medicine X has changed how I view myself and healthcare forever!
This was more than a conference. It was a convocation of folks who have diverse but common interests in advancing health care as a humanistic, inclusive, technology-infused, egalitarian process wherein the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Best food at a conference. Ever.
Lots of new ideas, contacts, access...I feel so motivated to become a better communicator and advocate and researcher.
