On January 8th, the inaugural Digital Orthopaedics Conference was held in San Francisco, California. Leaders from around the country met to discuss orthopedic healthcare trends. Topics included healthcare consumers, patient engagement, telemedicine, wearable technology, and the future of healthcare. I was able to catch some of the action through the live video stream provided by Code Technology. Visit their Facebook page to check out videos from the conference. I also kept up with the hashtag #DOCSF17 on Twitter throughout the day. Here are the best tweets from the 2017 Digital Orthopaedics Conference.
