Cleveland Clinic Personalized Healthcare Summit: May 6 & 7, 2013

The time and need for personalized healthcare has come. Our rate of healthcare spending in the United States is unsustainable, especially given our low scores compared to other developed countries on measures of quality and access. We are not delivering the kind of care we want for ourselves, our families, and our communities. We need to do better, and one of the proposed solutions is to move from one-size-fits-all care to personalized care.

We invite you to join us for a time of discovery and dialogue, as we experience personalized healthcare from the eyes of varied stakeholders. We encourage you to team with us in our journey to transform the delivery of healthcare and to better the health of our communities.

The 2013 Personalized Healthcare Summit is designed to explore the progression of personalized healthcare from concept to practice. The one and a half day summit will feature topics that highlight and explore new personalized healthcare discoveries with the potential to improve patient care. Participants will gain knowledge of tools to aid in the integration of personalized healthcare into clinical care. Through interactive discussion and collaboration, thoughts for the future of personalized healthcare will be discovered and developed.
