Date:8/10/2009

ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Inaugural Medical Device Connectivity Conference & Exhibition, organized by The Center for Business Innovation (TCBI), will be held on September 10-11, 2009 at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. This groundbreaking conference and exhibition features an outstanding agenda with nationally recognized experts from academia, provider organizations, manufacturers and elsewhere. The attendees will include high-level IT, clinical engineering and biomedical engineering executives from hospitals and healthcare systems across the US as well as representatives from medical device companies, consulting firms, academia, healthcare associations, health plans and the financial community.

About the Conference

"This is the first ever conference devoted to the topic of medical device connectivity, a surprising fact for a market that emerged in the 1980s with diagnostic and critical care applications. Continued pressure to improve patient safety and outcomes, and the adoption of EMRs, are the principal drivers for connectivity today. Connectivity recently became more closely tied to EMR adoption as a requirement of Meaningful Use. In addition to the general scope of connectivity, this conference zeros in on the point of care, whether in the hospital, the patient's home, or anywhere in between," says Tim Gee, Principal, Medical Connectivity Consulting, the conference chairperson and a keynote speaker.

The keynotes and panel discussions on the first day frame the conference's focus on connectivity and tackle two of the biggest issues facing health care: industry standards and regulatory issues. Program tracks on the second day provide a survey of connectivity applications, clinical capabilities and outcomes, and explore the gap between regulated vendor-managed systems and the customer-managed and controlled environments in which these systems are used.

Conference Supported by Major Associations

Supporting organizations of the conference include: American College of Clinical Engineering (ACCE), ACCE Healthcare Technology Foundation, Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and Mass Technology Leadership Council.
