Entrepreneurial Solutions to Health Care Challenges

Please join us for our 6th Annual conference to hear from the leaders who are reshaping the health care landscape and learn about innovative, bottom-up solutions from across a spectrum of health care and life sciences industries.

We are excited to announce that, for the first time ever, the conference will be held at a premier venue in downtown San Francisco:

Friday, February 24, 2012
The Westin San Francisco Market Street 50 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

The problems facing the health care system are numerous and well known, with health care reform only adding to this complexity. But healthcare companies and institutions are tackling these challenges head-on, increasingly taking entrepreneurial approaches to find ways of improving upon the status quo. These players are complementing theory with practice, ultimately favoring an experimental approach to developing solutions rather than waiting for the health care system to resolve itself. From governmental bodies utilizing the power of healthcare data to support health IT applications; to pharmaceutical companies turning to corporate venture funds to supplement R&D efforts; to new physician practice models designed to improve the primary care experience; examples of an entrepreneurial mindset in meeting the challenges of health care abound, often in unexpected places.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2012 conference, co-chaired by Sameera Chilakapati and Jeff Williamson. Please contact the co-chairs if you have any questions about the conference. Details on the 2012 conference will be added to the website as more information becomes available.
