Innovation Insider: Unlock the Future of Health Care

We exist to improve the world through innovation. We know many of you seek to do the same, and we want to better enable you to do so. That’s why we are launching Innovation Insider.

Drive Healthcare Transformation

Innovation Insider is a monthly gathering where we assess current health care trends, news, and businesses through the lens of theory.

In applying theory, we’ll uncover unique insights about industry happenings, and how you—as a health care innovator and leader—should think about responding.

The result?

You feel more confident about how you’re facing the future in a volatile and uncertain environment.

What to expect:

  • Gatherings will be held via Zoom
  • Monthly meetings will last an hour, with a 30-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute Q&A session
  • Gatherings will be recorded, so you can watch them on your schedule if you can’t attend live


Annual Membership: $500
