While it may not be as exciting as landing on Mars, there are several conferences this Fall worth noting:

  • Medicine 2.0 Boston with over 300 presenters and a wide range of topics from mobile and social media to education and personal monitoring devices from every continent.  I attended last year at Stanford but will not this year. Will miss the colleagues I have met over the years. Good to see ePatient Dave doing a followup on “Give Me My Damn Data”
  • Health 2.0 San Francisco – the ultimate showcase for health startups will including preconference workshops on Patients 2.0,Health  Law 2.0, Employers 2.0 and Doctorrs 2.0. Would like to see Clinical Trials 2.0 some year as well.
  • StrataRx conference by O’Reilly on health data. Looks like an excellent line up of speakers and topics although light on providers and EMR vendors.
  • AMIA 2012 Symposium in Chicago – Mayor Rahm Emanuel Declares October 30 to November 7, 2012 Informatics Week in Chicago. I will be attending and speaking at a preconfence workshop on Clinical Research Informatics Infrastructure.

I am sure there are many more, this is just a highlight of the Fall schedule.
