Adam Bosworth, Former Google Health Architect, to Discuss What Works and What Doesn't in Healthcare at World Healthcare Innovation and Technology Congress

Co-Founder and CEO of Health 2.0 Firm Keas, Inc. Set to Deliver Closing Keynote Address at Dec. 9-11 Conference in Washington, D.C.

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - World Congress, the leading provider of global healthcare forums, today announced former Google Health chief Adam Bosworth will deliver the closing keynote address at the 3rd Annual World Healthcare Innovation and Technology Congress titled "Physics, Speed and Psychology: What Works and What Doesn't in Healthcare and Why."

Bosworth, Google's former Vice President of Product Management and architect of Google Health, a planned online platform for organizing the world's abundance of healthcare information, left Google earlier this year and serves as co-founder and CEO of Keas, Inc., a new Health 2.0 company based in San Francisco, California. He will deliver his unique perspective on how America's Healthcare System can be fixed through an alignment of physics, speed and psychology.

The 3rd Annual World Healthcare Innovation and Technology Congress, which will convene more than 400 senior-level leaders from healthcare, technology and government, will be held Dec. 9-11 in Washington, D.C. at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Bosworth will deliver his address at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

In January 2007, Adam Bosworth addressed the team at Google's New York Office on why AJAX (a web development technique used for creating interactive web applications) failed when first introduced in a speech titled "Physics, Speed and Psychology: What Works and What Doesn't in Software and Why." Now, nearly a year later, Bosworth has left Google, and is helping people to live healthier lives by working with the health community. In his provocative closing keynote, Bosworth discusses how America's healthcare system, analogous to AJAX, can be successful through an alignment of physics, speed and psychology.

"We are extremely excited to add Adam Bosworth to our program," said Megan Antonelli, Executive Director of World Congress's Technology Sector. "Adam is one of the most insightful, engaging and thought-provoking leaders in the technology field. We are all eager to have him share his unique perspective on improving healthcare before a healthcare technology audience."
