TEDMED Live Streaming brings the TEDMED experience to the world.
Through web stream, powerful messages from our stage program travel to the far reaches of the health and medical innovation eco system. Last year, there were 1,500 delegates at the conference, but more than 200,000 people watched worldwide via TEDMED Live.
A variety of groups influence healthcare. Students, patients, nurses, government officials, researchers, advocacy groups, and entrepreneurs are making big changes. TEDMED Live Streaming members receive access to the entire TEDMED stage program with an opportunity to share ideas and build new connections via a virtual discussion board. The simulcast program allows centers of healthcare innovation such as medical schools, research institutions, and teaching hospitals to pause and take a step back to look at the larger healthcare picture and hear novel perspectives that can inspire new approaches and a forward-thinking mindset.
In 2013, more than 2,700 organizations leveraged TEDMED Live Streaming in ways that best fit their goals. Some universities brought their community together in lecture halls, adding to the TEDMED program with local subject matter experts that speak directly to TEDMED’s curated topics. Others chose to stream the select talks that aligned best with group schedules, and more still convened to watch the entire conference live.
TEDMED Live Streaming hosts saw transformations taking place in their organizations. Participants made new connections, floated creative ideas and held thoughtful discussions. One participant commented that the experience was “Inspiring! Not just for the great content, but for the way we leveraged TEDMED to move our organization to collaborate and begin to think differently about the challenges we face.”
For our 2014 event, TEDMED will again offer the entire program, streaming in high-definition, live and on-demand to everyone with an interest in the future of humanity’s health. Thanks to our generous partners, we are able to offer it free to teaching hospitals, medical schools, government agencies and approved non-profits.
As TEDMED begins to add global host cities to its worldwide stage —TEDMED Live Streaming also plans to expand by streaming to 100+ countries. By creating this vast health and medicine network, we can define problems more easily and expedite knowledge transfer. The world, from a healthcare perspective, is flattened. This is what TEDMED represents, and this is what TEDMED Live provides.
To take part in this vast network, individuals, groups and organizations need only to apply today. We will walk you through the simple and streamlined access, so that all you need to do is invite your community to experience TEDMED Live Streaming 2014, September 10-14, 2014, and be a part of a growing global community dedicated to sharing knowledge in health and medicine.
