The Health Innovators are preparing for the February 18 event, Advances in Adaptive Technology. We have a full evening of presenters for amazing technology that enhances the lives of thousands every year. It’s a look behind the scenes at what happens when technology makes it to the front end with client usage.

First however, the Health Innovators invite you to explore membership in Toastmasters. Our own Dr. Kal (Kalyan Kalwa, MD) is a Toastmaster President. Toastmasters is all about developing speaking and leadership skills. We would like to know how many supporters in the Greater Boston area would join us in becoming better communicators and public speakers. At this time the dates and place are TBD. Please send an email to, subject Toastmasters to show your interest..

Now, on the subject of health and innovation, Patient Talkback has received a warm welcome in the community. Still, we have a way to go in public and professional reception. PTB, as we have come to call it, will be available for demos on February 18. This smartphone app is easily downloaded by a QR code and ready for consumer use. If you don’t know what a QR code is, or if you have one on your phone, go to the App Store in iPhone or Google Play on Android, download QR Reader. Align the frame on your phone with the code you see here and Patient TalkBack installs. Your feedback is always welcome. We urge you to not only add this feature to your phone, but tell your health care providers about it. As easy as it is, it only helps accountable care if the provider elects to have a PTB dashboard on their system.

Along with our speakers, Julie Merritt and Jennifer Bartecchi, we will introduce a new segment; 15 minutes of fame. This will feature two start-up companies with 7.5 minutes each to tell you of their work. The presenters for this segment will be Connor Dahlberg, Wesley Ireland and Mohan Venkataramana.
