22nd April 2010

The Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA) is now accepting registrations for its fifth Annual WLSA Convergence Summit, a three-day conference sponsored by the premier non-profit trade organization dedicated to creating value and improving health through wireless communications technologies. The conference is scheduled for May 11-13 at Estancia Hotel & Spa, La Jolla, California.

The conference between the leadership of wireless companies, global product companies, consumers, payors, providers and service organizations, offers attendees the distinct opportunity to discuss the most significant emerging market trends, address and propose solutions to industry issues, create new partnerships and demonstrate new solutions.

Among the organizations presenting are senior management from WLSA members, including Ascension Health, AT&T, CareFusion, Johnson & Johnson, OptumHealth, QUALCOMM and St. Jude Medical, who will provide insights into their interest in the field and best practices for incorporating innovative, new wireless technologies into new products, applications and services, as well as how to bring these to providers and patients.

"WLSA created the Convergence Summit to bring key elements of the wireless health community together to meet, share ideas and demonstrate new products and solutions," said Robert B. McCray, WLSA President & CEO. "Our goal is to provide a forum that directly addresses emerging wireless technology in healthcare and enables participants to gain a thorough understanding of how to succeed in this dynamic market."

The event begins with the Investor's Meeting and Triple Tree I Award Program for Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance on Day 1, followed by the WLSA Convergence Summit on Day 2, and ends with Commercialization Day on Day 3.
