Philly-based InstaMed, maker of a top healthcare payments platform, announced Steve Wozniak — Apple cofounder also known as “The Woz” — as headliner of its upcoming conference.

Happening April 9 to 11, the InstaMed User Conference will rally healthcare “providers, payers and partners” to talk trends in the healthcare space.

“Steve Wozniak has been a huge influence in my personal journey with technology and entrepreneurship,” said Bill Marvin, president and CEO of InstaMed. “I still have programs I wrote on the Apple II as a fifth grader back in the early 1980s, and I have followed his journey closely as an example of a true innovator. I am thrilled to announce Mr. Wozniak as the keynote speaker at the InstaMed User Conference 2018.”

In a press release, the Woz praised the company’s “steadfast focus on innovating around healthcare payments, a historically confusing and painful aspect of the healthcare experience.”

There’s an open call for speakers now, deadlined Dec. 15.

    Woz is a blast, and an absolute joy to host; you’re in for a real treat! He’s friendly with everyone, and so honest. He carried three pens with him – two paint markers (silver and gold) and a sharpie, so he could autograph any kind of phone or device for people. He was a big fan of Han Dynasty when we had him at Wharton a few years back!
