(The Consumer Electronics Show also starts the 8th. Implications for JPM19?)
I love healthcare investment conferences. I suppose it's the dramatic combination of predicting the future plus placing enormous bets on those predictions.
With 10,000 attendees, many ready to write big checks, and 450 companies pitching their visions of transforming healthcare, the annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference is at the very top of healthcare investment conferences. While the exhibitor list is only available to attendees, here is a list of press releases from attending and presenting companies. JPM, nicknamed the Davos of the pharmaceutical industry, is mostly about drugs & money (sounds like a rock-and-roll song!). Read Drugmakers ‘flush with cash’ and hunting for deals for history and current trends. But medical device and data analytics companies, for example, also attend.
Oh, and that online guaranteed Amazon is garanteed to make news...
J.P. Morgan healthcare conference topics "Whatever Amazon ultimately does in healthcare, part of its strategy will likely capitalize on the power of voice - not simply as a means of helping physicians streamline their workflows, but also as a clinical tool for diagnosing everything from colds to depression in patients"
Then there are the other special interest conferences before, during, and after JPM.
See: CES 2019: What to expect "China is going to be a big topic at CES for other reasons too. Look for Chinese companies rolling out more innovation than some of their US competitors, like powerful camera lenses in shrinking devices. There is a new DJI mini gimbal camera that could knock companies like GoPro to its knees"
Then of course there is the massive CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas starting on the 8th.
Will AI transform healthcare? What about AI plus consumer electronics? In doing so, will it make someone a lot of money? Are there limits? Practical? Technical? Ethical?
