Dollars and Sense: The Business of Health Care

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is no shock that the health care industry is booming and about to boom even bigger.  In 2014, we saw record breaking investment in the health care industry, closing the year at just over 4.36 billion. Courting VC's is no longer the only way to get on the map - many hospital groups are also putting skin in the game by launching incubator programs.  The industry saw freshman start ups touch the triple digit mark, which begs the question: who is really succeeding in this cacophony of funding and innovation? The Business of Health Care is going to decipher the economics of these influxes, evaluate business models that are working and why, and examine the multitude of players, including non-clinical roles, being introduced into the sector.
