The World Medical Innovation Forum is a global gathering of more than 1,000 senior health care leaders in the heart of Boston. It was established to respond to the intensifying transformation of health care and its impact on innovation. The Forum is rooted in the belief that no matter the magnitude of that change, the center of health care needs to be a shared, fundamental commitment to collaborative innovation – industry and academia working together to improve patient lives.

The 2018 World Medical Innovation Forum focuses on the advancements and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence.

The event will bring together industry-leading CEOs, Partners' HIT experts, investors and deal makers to share perspectives on how cognitive computation, machine learning, and big data are having a transformative impact on patient care. International experts will be joined by attendees from the senior ranks of the information technology, life science, pharmaceutical, government and health care investment communities, as well as top Partners HealthCare faculty and staff.

In addition to examining the cutting-edge issues in the field, the Forum will feature presentations from emerging investigators called First Look, the Discovery Café, and the “Disruptive Dozen”—12 emerging technologies with the potential to revolutionize the selected field over the next decade.
