Health Care Innovators
Health Care Innovators is a select and diverse assembly of senior representatives from countless health care sectors who will meet periodically to address technological trends, breakthroughs and patient issues critical to hospitals, urgent care, pharma, bio, insurance and much more.
For example, in October 2018, senior representatives from area hospitals including Tower, Penn Medicine and Main Line Health, plus Rothman and Cerner along with several other community leaders noted the remarkable health care offerings in the region.
The Innovators also viewed the primary challenge that needs to be met in terms of the overall health of the area is: insufficient access to Behavioral Health (Mental and Addiction) facilities—an urgent need compounded by the Opioid Crisis.
Improved transportation for staff and patients along with workforce challenges were also discussed.
In support of a healthy economy and the growth of the health care industry, our goal is to have the “innovators” create more ingenious storylines and inventive solutions dedicated to the dynamic field of health care that will drive the work of our organizations.
