How Crowdsourcing Is Saving Your Life

This panel will discuss ways in which crowdsourcing has been used to change the landscape of healthcare in the United States. Audience members will learn how the Affordable Care Act has opened the door for new health tech companies and just how big the opportunity is to provide technology solutions. New crowdsourcing companies are empowering patients to take their physical, emotional, and financial health into their own hands. The audience will hear stories of how existing crowdsourcing has saved lives and will get a first glimpse at a new startup that will revolutionize the way diabetics control their insulin. Panelists will also discuss how they are utilizing data compiled from crowds to shape their product offering and change the way we approach our health.
