Games for Health Getting Down to Business Panel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel brings together a number of games for health field participants who are focusing ever more on commercial efforts. The transition of the field from one focused on research, early prototypes, and work-for-hire, to one of products, and services, sold through app stores, enterprise sales, and direct provider sales, is still an early stage effort. Learning from what's worked, and what hasn't so far, and taking into account the constant and quickening changes happening in technology & health, what is the outlook for the next year for building sustainable business(es) from a games for health perspective? The goal of this panel is to examine the past, but make smart, if not bold, predictions for the next year and beyond.
