Each week Taproot brings together the latest on the research, technology, companies and people changing health and healthcare for the better in Edmonton. If you have a suggestion for a future edition of the roundup, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
Here are some highlights from this week’s Health Innovation Roundup:
You’ll have to travel for:
- The T4M Start-up World trade show for medical technology innovators will be held in Stuttgart, Germany on May 7 to 9.
- Abstract submissions for eHealth 2019 have closed, but there is room at the conference for delegates. The conference runs from May 26 to 29 at the Beanfield Centre in Toronto, ON.
- Inventure$ 2019, an “un-conference” for entrepreneurs and startups to connect with investors, will be held in Calgary from June 7 to 9. The deadline to apply to pitch is March 15.
- TechCrunch reports that California-based company Meditab leaked medical records because a fax server was not properly secured. The electronic fax server had no password and the data was not encrypted.
- Discover Magazine wrote about a study of a woman who can smell Parkinson’s disease. Now researchers are trying to train dogs and to develop laboratory machines to sniff out the disease in its early stages.
The Health Innovation Roundup, sponsored by Health City, is a weekly email newsletter written and published by Taproot Edmonton.
