How many new health apps do you see each month? Tons. It's fantastic that consumers are so empowered to manage their own health, but apps can't do everything. Furthermore, businesses that rely solely on apps struggle to generate value. Medical devices are the primary consumer interaction for many conditions, yet there are countless old school devices still being used today which haven't changed in decades. This session will feature entrepreneurs who have developed medical devices that address a wide range of healthcare needs. In this panel, they will share their experiences on why devices are key to their business success and how to think about new ventures in healthcare.
