Biocom’s DeviceFest & Digital Health Conference will be held on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 in Southern California. Since its inception in 2007, this conference has focused on supporting the medical device and diagnostics industries by giving our members access to key decision makers and thought leaders who have helped them expand their businesses and increase exposure for their products. Fast forward 12 years to the advancement of innovative technology, we are beginning to notice a fundamental shift within the healthcare industry.

With digital health and consumer-driven data now on the forefront of healthcare, there has been a convergence in the medtech and digital health industries. In order to better deliver on the needs of our members and conference attendees, the conference has been adapted to focus on medical device, diagnostic, and now, digital health.

Through a blend of panel discussions, keynote presentations and case studies, this conference is aimed at giving attendees a deeper look into the convergence of the medical device and digital health.

This year’s theme – The Product Life Cycle – aims to walk attendees through the process of creating a product all the way from creation to reimbursement. We will begin with sessions focused on creation where panelists discuss the importance and value of the value proposition. From there, we take you through the challenges of financing as we hear from panelists on raising funds for your medical device company and on forging strategic partnerships. From there, we walk you through reimbursement and regulatory strategy.


Closing out the conference will be our popular ‘Hot Seat Challenge’ where three innovative companies will have the opportunity to give their five minute pitches to a panel of judges and investors, while receiving on-the-spot critiques. This hot seat is a fast, fun, and interactive forum, giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their technologies in front of world-class leaders and investors. Voted on by audience members using their mobile devices, one entrepreneur will be crowned the “hottest” device company in Southern California.

Hot Seat Winner Will Receive:

$5,000 Cash Prize (Underwritten by Thermo Fisher Scientific)
