THINC30 - Resilience & Recovery: The UNSDGs in the New Now: Relevance and Recovery
October 22, 2020 | 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Creating a more just, equitable, sustainable society has never been more urgent.
Please join us - virtually - for this year’s THINC30 Summit in October to learn how the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are more relevant than ever in offering us a roadmap for creating the society we want.
This year’s crises of the coronavirus pandemic, the country’s longstanding racial inequalities and the continuing economic uncertainty have spotlighted a range of disparities that can no longer be ignored -- in health, education, work, housing, community development, economic opportunity and the environment.
At THINC30 summit, you’ll convene with thought leaders, changemakers, social innovators and people who love Pittsburgh and want to accelerate partnerships and local action around the UN SDGs to correct these disparities.
This year, THINC30 will be held over three days in two-hour sessions, with each day devoted to one of the three pillars of sustainability – social, environmental, economic equity.

OutSystems and CDR - Virtual Happy Hour: Distilling Information in the Surging Connected Care Market
October 29, 2020 | 4:30PM - 5:30PM
Hosted by Cloud Development Resources and OutSystems, with special guest, Mine Hill Distillery
Connected care leverages digital technologies such as remote patient monitoring (RPM) and telemedicine in a way that helps providers care for their patients outside of the confines of a traditional office. COVID-19 has accelerated the need for reliable, easy to use, secure, telemedicine solutions.
In fact, the connected care market is expected to grow 250% in the next five years. The upside of this tremendous growth is it opens a whole new revenue channel for healthcare providers. Integrating RPM and telemedicine solutions into your practice will have a direct impact on both patient satisfaction and the ability to generate more revenue from your practice.
Join us for this session to learn how connected care solutions can assist healthcare providers, facilities, homes, and care givers to save time, money, and improve patient satisfaction.
For a fun twist, as an added incentive to join this virtual happy hour - we're pleased to announce that the founder and head distiller of Mine Hill Distillery, a craft distillery in Roxbury CT will join to discuss how they make their award winning gin and sweet vermouth. In addition, we will learn how to make a classic cocktail - the Negroni. So, bring your martini glasses, a shaker and the raw ingredients and get expert advice on creating your new favorite cocktail.
