Hacking Medicine at MIT

Saturday, April 7, 2012

There are many days when I wish I could be back in Boston. There is a very interesting movement at MIT called "Hacking Medicine at MIT" and they have an event coming up on April 10th with the Chief Administrative Officer from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

The time is right to hack healthcare, but as entrepreneurs we often are setback because we can’t get to the people that are making the decisions in healthcare settings, government, and industry. To help fix this, Bob Higgins, Richard Foster, Jim Dougherty and Hacking Medicine have teamed up to bring you Eric Buehrens, the former Chief Administrative Officer from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), one of the largest and most prestigious academic medical centers in the world. If you ever want to sell or partner with a hospital, Eric is the ideal person to speak to because he is the one who makes the decisions at the top. Prior to his current role, he served as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of BIDMC. The goal of this event is to help connect entrepreneurs to the marketplace and give you open access to Eric Buehrens and ask him those questions you can’t find the answer to on any website.

Date: Tuesday, April 10th
Time: 7 – 9PM
Location: Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, One Amherst Street, E40-160, Cambridge, MA
