Find me on:

This year’s MSD Healthcare Innovation + Technology conference is aptly titled “Better Together.” Recognizing the positive shift of post-acute healthcare providers embracing innovative technology solutions to improve patient outcomes, the MSD Better Together conference brings together leaders from across the industry to share their expertise and discuss emerging technology solutions.

Conference Highlights

The Pitch Tank and Reverse Expo are two highly anticipated events taking place at this year’s conference.

Pitch Tank 

The popular Pitch Tank is back for the second year in a row. Five entrepreneurs take the stage to compete as they pitch their innovative technology solutions. They will prepare a five-minute demo for the audience and panel of leading industry experts. This panel, moderated by Original Shark Tank cast member and successful entrepreneur Kevin Harrington, will select the winner, who will receive a $10,000 grand prize.  

Reverse Expo

The MSD conference is adding a new feature this year with the addition of the Reverse Expo. Putting a new spin on the traditional expo, their Reverse Expo will provide Premier, Platinum, and Gold level sponsors with the opportunity to speak with customers about their product and services. To facilitate this process, customers are assigned to a kiosk that sponsors may visit for a total of five minutes. This is a unique opportunity that allows both customers and vendors to connect with exciting new opportunities.

General Sessions At-A-Glance

All participants will have the opportunity to participate in the general sessions, which cover a variety of educational topics and keynote presentations by industry leaders.

  • Legislative and Regulatory Panel Discussion
  • Driving Digital Patient Enablement
  • Doug Kelly, Make-a-Wish Foundation
  • Keynote from Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel – Health Care; Moving Beyond the Hospital Walls
  • KeyNote from Dr. Javeed Siddiqui – Telehealth: Past, Present and Future
  • Book Signing: Prescription for the Future, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel
  • MSD’s Healthcare Innovation and Technology Expo
