From chatbots to Apple Watches, blood tests to genetic data, technology is changing almost every element of healthcare.

That transformation is the focus of a new track at this year’s GeekWire Summit that will dive deep into how technologies like artificial intelligence and the cloud are having an impact on our health. Tickets are available here.

Among those joining us on stage on Oct. 3 at the GeekWire Summit:

  • Raj Singh, the CEO of health technology company Accolade, will shine a light on using technology to navigate the healthcare system, from understanding benefits to maximizing health outcomes.
  • Kimber Lockhart, the CTO of One Medical, will dive into how technology can reshape the everyday doctor’s visit, removing both literal and metaphorical headaches for patients, insurance providers and doctors alike.
  • Chad Robins, the CEO and co-founder of Adaptive Biotechnologies, will talk about how artificial intelligence and reams of biological data are changing diagnostic technology.
  • Heidi Hagen, the CSO and co-founder of Vineti, will share how technology plays a role in personalizing treatments for each individual.

Watch for more announcements in the days ahead. A big thanks to Regence for sponsoring this year’s health tech track.
