The size of the telehealth market is expected to expand to $30BN by the year 2020, yet many of the most well-funded telehealth startups continue to fail. The purpose of the conference is to identify best practices in the telehealth industry through an examination of industry case studies.

Fruit Street CEO and Co-Founder Laurence Girard will address the conference on the use of telehealth for weight management. Fruit Street will also be represented at the conference by Co-Founder and CTO Dr. Milton Chen, PhD who will deliver an address titled "The Telehealth Adoption Black Hole" in which he will analyze the challenges of Health Spot, Doctor on Demand, American Well and other leading telehealth companies.
Dr. Chen is also the founder of VSee, Fruit Street's joint venture software development partner, which is well-known for being selected by NASA as the provider of video software for use on the International Space Station and is the same video technology used in Fruit Street.
On the telehealth industry, Laurence Girard recently remarked that "obesity costs the US healthcare system over $147BN each year and two in three Americans are overweight or obese. Our healthcare system must use technology such as Fruit Street to find more cost-effective solutions to address the obesity epidemic."
