ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sixth Annual Healthcare Unbound Conference & Exhibition, organized by The Center for Business Innovation (TCBI), will feature the coming together of consumer and healthcare technologies to facilitate participatory medicine. The Conference will take place at the Seattle Airport Marriott in Seattle, WA on June 22-23, 2009. Attendees will include a diverse representation of the many business segments that will be impacted by these innovative technologies, including health plans and health insurance companies; healthcare providers, including hospitals, home care agencies and other postacute care facilities; chronic care management and disease management companies; long-term care facilities and retirement communities; pharmaceutical and medical device companies; healthcare IT companies; consumer technology companies; wireless companies; ehealth and social media companies; the financial community; academics; and government officials.

Healthcare Unbound Defined

Consumer and healthcare technologies are driving opportunities to serve patients in new ways and in new settings. Forrester Research coined the term "Healthcare Unbound" to encompass the trends toward technology-aided self-care, mobile care and home care, defining it as "technology in, on and around the body that frees care from formal institutions." This rapidly evolving technology field includes sensor technology, wearable computing, home-based health monitoring solutions, and wellness and lifestyle support solutions.

About the Conference

"For the past 150 years, the U.S. healthcare system has been defined by 'place' -- primarily doctors' offices and hospitals. 2009 is shaping up to be a year of tremendous change for the U.S. healthcare system, and it's clear that every day we are getting closer to achieving Healthcare Unbound. This conference attracts the technical, clinical, and business leaders who are making Healthcare Unbound a reality," said Vince Kuraitis, JD, MBA, Principal, Better Health Technologies, LLC, a chairperson, conference advisory board member and keynote speaker.

The Conference will include over 80 speakers participating in panel discussions, case studies, workshops and keynote addresses. Sessions will include in-depth coverage of technology-enabled chronic care management and wellness promotion, impact of the economic stimulus bill on the marketplace, legal/regulatory and reimbursement issues, payer perspectives, wireless technologies, the medical home model and its technology implications, social media, ehealth and much more. The Conference will feature an Aging Services educational track that is co-sponsored by the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) and the Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST).

Nationally Recognized Speakers Drive Discussion

Keynote speakers include high-level representatives from Aetna, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, Continua Health Alliance, Critical Mass Consulting, Group Health Cooperative, Humana, Inc., Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, The Kibbe Group, The Regence Group and WellDoc, Inc.
