When you think of funding the future, hospitals may not immediately come to mind. But some are changing their role in healthcare in unexpected ways and taking on a new, bold challenge: becoming strategic investors. The panel will discuss how UPMC selects start-ups for its pilot program and leverages its clinical, operational and tech resources to accelerate advancement in health. The panel will also include a start-up founder transforming healthcare today.
