On September 18-19, 2006, Partners Telemedicine will hold the Partners Telemedicine Third Annual Symposium at the Conference Center at Harvard Medical School in Boston's Longwood Medical area. This year's symposium, titled "Connected Health ‐ Empowering Care Through Communications," will bring together thought leaders from multiple aspects of healthcare and technology, to discuss the innovative applications of new healthcare communications technologies. We found last year's event to be exceedingly helpful in understanding the state of "connected health" and look forward to attending again this year.
