Chicago - 8:30 AM - 5:15 PM
We are pleased to invite you to the inaugural â€œConference on Healthcare Innovation (CHI): improving healthcare value by increasing quality and decreasing costâ€�, sponsored by the German Marshall Fund via the Marshall Memorial Fellowship alumni leadership project.
Innovation to improve value in healthcare may be achieved via a multitude of pathways: by scientific, translational research, or novel ways to utilize technology or modification in process. Innovation occurs when the â€œdiscovery â€œ, be it drug, device, or process, adds value to healthcare by improving quality or reducing costs.
This convening seeks to educate, inspire, and forge networks regionally, nationally, transatlantically, and globally to lead to better healthcare value.
