The Global Healthcare Team: Creating Jobs and Improving Lives with American Exports

International Patient Day: Saving Lives Through American Innovation

What Is International Patient Day?
The goal of an International Patient Day is for foreign government regulators and high level officials to see the personal impact U.S. medical technology has on their local population. International Patient Day seeks to build the human connection through sharing personal stories of how U.S. technology is improving lives in their country.

  • International Patient Day Events will take place around the globe from March through June 2017. Each country program will be 2-3 hours in length and will feature presentations from local doctors and patients who will talk about how US technologies have improved their lives. A networking reception where regulators can speak with US healthcare technology firms will follow these presentations.
  • Confirmed locations include:

North & South America

Europe

Middle East

Asia

Argentina

Austria

Egypt

Australia

Italy

Israel

China

Canada

Marketing Partnership Opportunity

International Patient Day will provide marketing partners with valuable exposure to and engagement with foreign government regulators and other critical decision makers. Marketing partners will be responsible for:

  • Locating a doctor or patient in the target country who uses your company’s technology and would be willing to speak at the International Patient Day.
  • Attending the local International Patient Day to discuss new technology or answer questions.

Marketing partnership includes:

  • Inclusion of sponsor’s logo in all marketing materials as well as on International Patient Day printed program materials
  • Sponsor table at International Patient Day Program
  • Up to three company attendees may attend the International Patient Day program
  • Networking opportunities with all attendees
  • List and contact information of International Patient Day program (to be distributed following the event)
  • Social Media Promotion

**Important Notes:

  • International Patient Day is not a policy platform! Rather, this is an opportunity to make a soft pitch for US technologies.
  • At this time, the program will only include medical device and Health IT companies. We will work to include all sectors of the healthcare industry moving forward.
  • Offerings may vary according to the needs of different markets.

Partnership Levels

  • $1500 per country
  • $1000 per country (when sponsoring 10 or more markets)
