The Anatomy of Innovation: Opportunities, Risks and Pitfalls

Monday, April 13

4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Room E353b


To say that 2014 was a record year for health start-ups is an understatement. $4.1B was invested into a new generation of health start-ups, more than the total of the previous three years. This panel discusses how large health systems can most effectively engage that innovative spirit emanating from young, single minded start-up businesses. How can health systems best engage the entrepreneurial community? What lessons can we learn from past failures and successes? What are the best ways to identify and assess winning ideas? How should a start-up begin to engage a large health system? What is the anatomy of a successful collaboration?
