MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Top officials with the world’s largest medical technology company, the nation’s biggest health insurer and one of the world’s premier academic medical centers are taking part in a conference in Minneapolis.

The Star Tribune reports that the Minnesota-based CEOs of Medtronic and Mayo Clinic will join the chief medical officer of UnitedHealth Group on one stage at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Tuesday.

They’ll address a crowd of thousands of health care executives and entrepreneurs from around the world at the medical-technology industry’s premier national conference, AdvaMed 2016.

Medical Alley Association trade group CEO Shaye Mandle says the industry needs improved health outcomes and lower costs, and the presentation will be an opportunity to get major players in health care talking about potential solutions.

The conference runs through Wednesday.
