Energizing Health Collaboration Series
A five-city event series to catalyze collaboration and innovation
The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in collaboration with Health Data Consortium will host the Energizing Health Collaboration Series, a series of events across five major U.S. cities — Boston, Pittsburgh, Houston, Kansas City, and San Francisco — to connect healthcare innovators.
At each event, a group of selected entrepreneurs will have a chance to meet and discuss collaboration and development opportunities with key stakeholders within healthcare.
Participants will include hospital systems and care centers, payers, technologists, and other industry leaders.
