The Golden Gate Beckons

The San Francisco 49ers aren’t the only thing happening when the New Year begins in that beautiful city by the bay. The day after the top seeded Niners play the lowest remaining seed in the NFL playoffs the J P Morgan Healthcare Conference opens at the Westin St. Francis. So after attending CES in Sin City which begins the week before we head to JPM with high expectations.
The early schedule is out and while there are plenty of the usual suspects a few new names have appeared.

Monday at 3:30pm Verily presents, followed the next morning at 8:30am Livongo presents. Also new to the list is Novo Nordisk who presents on Tuesday at 3:30pm after Sanofi who presents at 10:30am and Lilly who presents at 2:30pm, so guess we should classify Tuesday as insulin day at JPM.

Dexcom opens the conference Monday morning at 8am with Abbott the next morning at 9am.

Other notable presentations Medtronic Monday morning at 9am, Insulet Tuesday at 11am and for the first time Companion at 2pm Wednesday.

As per usual we’ll be reporting from both CES and JPM and given both conferences are in the Pacific time zone expect posts to come out late east coast time.

Our best guess for both shows with digital health being hotter than Georgia asphalt is digital will dominate much of the discussion. But as per usual we always expect the unexpected particularly at JPM which always seems to yield a surprise or two.

So stay tuned.

Until then enjoy your New Year celebrations – Happy New Year Everyone may it be a healthy and prosperous New Year for all.
