With more than 100 workshops, talks, meetings, lunches, happy hours, brainstorming sessions, and demos, Philly Tech Week, April 17 – 25, showcases Philadelphia as a hub for innovation. A true testament to how big tech is in the city, last year 25,000 people attended 130 events organized by 250 partners. And the 2015 Philly Tech Week is set to break the record.
As part of our ongoing commitment to innovation, the Center for Health Care Innovation at Independence Blue Cross is a presenting sponsor of the Development track. We’re excited to fill our schedule with events that will continue to help us redefine the health care delivery system.

Wednesday, April 22: Business Day
Everyone has to start somewhere, and for those small businesses with big ideas, this is the day to take part in targeted business boot camps, get expert advice from investors, and learn from local leaders on how to make it in the entrepreneurial world. IBX’s Corporate Development and Innovation Director Tom Olenzak will be speaking to an audience of early-stage entrepreneurs, startups, and students at the Entrepreneur Boot Camp.
Thursday, April 23: Dev Day
From programming professionals to those just beginning to master their first codes, this full-day conference will include workshops on popular programming languages, and a dev-focused conference with more than 15 high-level developers — including a look at big-data case studies with IBX’s Senior Vice President and Chief Informatics Officer Somesh Nigam. The day wraps up with an inclusive after-party to celebrate all you’ve learned.
Friday, April 24: Ideas in Life Sciences
Our very own Center for Health Care Innovation will host an idea session where small groups will come up with ideas about how we can leverage new technology and social media to engage and impact the health care community.
Events will be held all over the city organized into one or more tracks: Development, Creative, Media, Civic, Business, or Access. There are opportunities to hear from industry experts, pitch your ideas to influencers, get hands-on with technology you love, and learn about developments you’ve never heard of…yet. Check out the full, packed calendar — there’s sure to be something that resonates with your industry or interests.
We hope to see you getting your tech on along with us!
