The intent of the conference has been described as “a gathering of geniuses” that brings together “some of the most innovative, thoughtful pioneers of healthcare technology, media, and entertainment into one big four-day ‘dinner party’ to learn from one another and mix people up from different disciplines and industries to solve big problems in healthcare.”
Hodosh recreated TEDMED and launched its first conference under his guidance in San Diego in October 2009.
In January 2010, TED.com began including videos of TEDMED talks on the TED website.
In 2011, Jay Walker and a group of executives and investors purchased TEDMED from Hodosh for $16 million with future additional payments of as much as $9 million. The conference was then moved to Washington, DC.
