Sanjay Shah represented the session sponsor, California HealthCare Foundation. Co-Founders Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya co-moderated a session of rapid-fire demos from Health 2.0 buzz-worthy newbies on “Launch!”. Demos included SmartPatient, Medvoy, Genetrainer, Medlio, InvolveCare, Recovery Record, Vimty, Liviam, Mevoked, and OM Signal. At the end of the session the audience overwhelmingly voted Stephane Marceau from OM Signal as the winner with his wearable sensor woven directly into the fabric of a t-shirt! The prize is bragging rights and an invitation to demo on the mainstage at the 8th Annual Fall Conference in 2014.
