The future of cardiovascular medicine is today, tomorrow and just over the horizon. The ACC.18 Future Hub (Expo Hall #3517) has been designed to inform, educate, inspire and delight ACC.18 attendees by highlighting the latest innovations in digital health, medical devices and education technology.
Attendees can experience the latest treatments, technologies and therapies through thought-provoking “ACC Talk” presentations, interactive panel discussions and industry partner demonstrations. Fifteen industry partners are showcasing their services, technologies and devices that will help shape the future of cardiovascular medicine. Through interactive activities, Future Hub participants can see how the latest technology might play a role in health care, how it will change their practice and how to leverage technology to improve patient outcomes. Innovative product and service demonstrations include a medical technology/device “petting zoo” with individualized hands-on opportunities.
