'A.I. Trends in Health Care,'Ang Sun, Cambia's Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer - Ang will share how A.I., combined with consumer experience research and human-centered design, is being used to make data actionable and create powerful consumer solutions to improve the health care experience.
'Cambia Grove's 5 Points Workshop,' Maura Little(link is external), Executive Director of the Cambia Grove - Maura will discuss how health care entrepreneurs face an uphill battle in accessing and understanding all of the stakeholders who have a say in their product. This workshop will give you an inside look by breaking down how health care verticals work together. Using human-centered design practices, you'll be guided through the development of your own health innovation design. All levels of health care experience are encouraged to attend.
If you're attending TechfestNW this year, be sure to stop by our recruitment booth on the demo floor(link is external). From senior-level engineers to tech internships, we are looking for professionals who want to change health care.
