Toronto, Ontario, Canada – February 17, 2015: Open Source Health Inc. (CSE:OSH), (Frankfurt:0OS), is leading the digital transformation of integrative medicine with its cloud-based healthcare platform. OSH puts control into the hands of women to educate, advocate and collaborate on their own healthcare and is pleased to announce that Sonya Satveit, CEO and Founder of Open Source Health will take the stage with other thought-leaders at the SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas on March 16, 2015.
“SXSW brings together the most creative people and the brightest minds in technology, film and music so being asked to speak at the first SX Health and MedTech Expo is an honour,” says Sonya Satveit. “This festival is world-renowned with over 72,000 people attending and is a great venue for OSH to communicate the disruptive impact we are about to make in the healthcare industry”.
The session is titled “Women Leading Changes in Digital Health”. With women traditionally seen as the nurturing caretakers of the healthcare industry, it is not surprising that female entrepreneurs are incorporating innovative technologies to transform healthcare. This transformation goes beyond wearables, IT systems, and medical devices as technology is also being used to engage patients, their families and communicate patient needs and wishes for their care.
SXSW is the premier interactive, film, and music festival, with over 72,000 attendees every year in Austin. The SX Health and MedTech Expo is new for 2015! Building on the success of past programming that has focused on Health and Med-Tech including Anne Wojcicki (CEO and co-founder, 23andMe), J. Craig Venter (Geneticist, J. Craig Venter Institute), Dr. Jim Olson (Presage Biosciences Inc., Tumor Paint) and more. The brand new JW Marriott Hotel will serve as home for this exciting first-year exhibit space.
Taking place March 16-17, the SX Health and MedTech Expo will incorporate the same ideals of SXSW Interactive, promoting creativity, innovation and collaboration, and will feature over 60 exhibiting companies from around the world that are pushing the limits of healthcare technology.
In addition to exhibiting companies, the SX Health and MedTech Expo will feature presentations from thought-leaders in the healthcare industry. The JW Marriott will also be home to more than 40 panels and presentations covering Health and Med-Tech.
