Turning Big Healthcare into Hubs of Innovation

Tuesday, March 17
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 203-204
110 E 2nd St

Patients and providers face challenges at our healthcare institutions on a daily basis. These organizations are ripe with real problems, real providers, and real patients. This makes them the perfect test environment and partner for entrepreneurs with new ideas and novel approaches to achieve impact. By creating meaningful connections between entrepreneurs, providers, and patients innovation can happen, the spread of new ideas can be accelerated, and we can begin to fix our broken system.

In this panel, we will describe our collective experience as clinicians providing front line care, institutions incubating teams from within, and institutions partnering with outside entrepreneurs to pilot, test, and validate results. We will explore processes we are using to advance ideas, establish clinical effectiveness, and allow for rapid implementation, adoption, and dissemination of the ideas that can transform healthcare.
