Matching Public Health Data with Real-World Business Models

If you’ve ever considered starting something using health data–whether a product, service, or offering in an existing business, or a start-up company to take over the world–this is something you won’t want to miss. In this highly-interactive, games-based brew-ha, we pack the room full of flat-out gurus to get an understanding of what it takes to be a healthcare entrepreneur. Your guides will come from finance and investment; clinical research and medical management; sales and marketing; technology and information services; operations and strategy; analytics and data science; government and policy; business, product, and line owners from payers and providers; and some successful entrepreneurs who have been there and done it for good measure. We’ll take your idea from the back of a napkin and give you the know-how to make it a reality!
