"BIO International Convention is the place to do business, with a record-setting number of scheduled business meetings happening every single year," said Jill Gilbert of Living in Digital Times, producer of the DHSS.  "Partnering with BIO not only gives our Digital Health Summer Summit attendees the opportunity to take advantage of BIO's proprietary One-on-One Partnering™ online business development tool, but it also gives them unprecedented access to C-level executives on the biotech and pharma side of the table."

More than 35,500 scheduled partnering meetings took place over the course of just three and a half days at the BIO International Convention in 2016—more scheduled meetings occurring under one roof than any other conference.

"We are excited to announce that we have continued our partnership with Living in Digital Times and Digital Health Summer Summit to deliver the digital health tech agenda that our attendees want," said Sarah Arth, BIO's Vice President for Education. "Digital Health Summer Summit has been the long-standing conference to attend if you want to put your finger on the pulse of the rapidly growing digital health sector and the technology driving it."

This year's DHSS will focus on "Going Vertical: Digital Health's Fast-Paced Climb" with two immersive days of keynotes and panel discussions designed to help companies evolve shrewdly and scale to new heights, on Monday, June 19th and Tuesday, June 20th.  Conference content will tackle four key digital health areas:
