MedFuse 2018 has ended
While innovation in the medical space can be daunting or challenging, MedFuse will be a place where both seasoned experts and aspiring talent are welcome together. Not only are there many ways in which the medical field stands to benefit from new perspectives, but there are also many tangential fields to medicine that innovations present in other IoT solutions can serve with fewer barriers. Fields like home monitoring, health and wellness apps, or wearable devices. So if you or your company have ideas, are looking for ideas, or just want to be inspired, MedFuse is the place to come tap into a network of innovators, thinkers, but most importantly, doers. So whether or not you are a trained medical professional, MedFuse is right for you.
