When asked about the reasons behind creating this event, the host of the event, Rigved Tadwalkar, MD, Technology Co-Chair of the California Chapter of the American College of Cardiology said: “This upcoming conference will present a unique opportunity to understand the challenges that lie ahead and will provide significant opportunities for cardiologists to partner in shaping the future.” He went on to say, “They will be discussing topics that everyone has been curious about, but haven’t yet had a real opportunity to explore further. By having tech companies, app developers, key opinion leaders, and practicing cardiologists interface, the goal is to inspire change in the way medicine is practiced.”
