The Burrill Consumer Digital Health Meeting

March 22, 2010 - March 23, 2010
The San Francisco Airport Marriott
Burlingame, CA





In the not too distant future, nearly all of healthcare will be digitized. Mindful of the coming changes, Burrill & Company, in association with the University of Illinois, Mayo Clinic, Pfizer and Google, is for the first time holding The Burrill Consumer Digital Health Meeting to help prepare the life sciences community for this new era.

Learn how PDAs and smartphones will become personal healthcare assistants capable of receiving vital signs and even body fluid samples for analysis and transmittal of results. Wherever patients are in the world, they will be able to connect with their physicians. And their doctors, in turn, will be able to practice medicine virtually anywhere and at anytime, with instant access to the information and systems they need—right at their thumbs.

 Here is what people are saying about the event:

"The University of Illinois is a world leader in genomics, information technology, and imaging, and the Consumer Digital Health Conference captures the University's vision for leveraging these technologies to address global health challenges."  - Lawrence B Schook, Direction, Division of Biomedical Sciences.

"To successfully engage university research to the new “digital health” market place, we must identify and build partnerships with outstanding organizations whose strengths compliment the research excellence at Illinois. This effort will represent the major advances in health treatment that are possible only through such synergies." - Interim Chancellor and Provost Bob Easter, University of Illinois.

"At Pfizer, our vision is quality healthcare without barriers of cost and access, and we believe the time is ripe to shape this vision by advancing consumer-centric, technology-enabled health and wellness. We are proud to sponsor the Burrill Consumer Digital Health Conference, and excited by the opportunity to lead disruptive change through collaborations with innovators and entrepreneurs to transform the delivery of healthcare." - Pfizer Representative
