About this conference

On October 15 and 16 in New York City, WIRED and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will launch a new conversation on the future of healthcare with 200 expert leaders from the worlds of medicine, science, technology, and business.

The WIRED Health Conference: Living By Numbers will deliver a clear, compelling argument that today there is a new opportunity to bring data into real-time decision-making for doctors, researchers, hospitals, and individuals. This combination has the potential to transform people's lives.

The conference will span the gap between healthcare and technology, connecting pioneering researchers with ambitious entrepreneurs. First and foremost, it will be a forum for ideas. Expect new connections, new opportunities, and new insights in how better data is driving us all toward better health.


WIRED is the first word on how technology is changing the world. WIRED's focus is less on the technology itself, and more on the impact of technology: on business, science, and culture. WIRED sees change as opportunity. We embrace the future and help foster innovation, invention, and disruption. WIRED is the guide for what's next. The WIRED mission is to tell the world something they have never heard before in a way they have never seen.
