The next installment of our Open Mic Sessions features Dr. Joseph Kvedar from the Center of Connected Health and Partners HealthCare. See details below, and see you there!
The time is right to hack healthcare, but as entrepreneurs we often are setback because we can’t get to the people that are making the decisions in healthcare settings, government, and industry. To help fix this, Bob Higgins, Richard Foster, Jim Dougherty and Hacking Medicine have teamed up to bring you Dr. Joseph Kvedar, the Founder and Director of the Center for Connected Health within Partners HealthCare. If you ever want to sell or partner with a hospital, Dr. Kvedar is the ideal person to speak to because he is the one who makes the decisions about which technologies to bring into their Center and how to commercialize them. He also is a Co-Founder of Healthrageous, a personalized health technology company, which is based on the technology platform developed at the Center. The goal of this event is to help connect entrepreneurs to the marketplace and give you open access to Dr. Kvedar and ask him those questions you can’t find the answer to on any website. Also we are going to select 3-5 student entrepreneurs to give their 60 second pitch at the end of the event and get direct feedback from Dr. Kvedar himself. If you would like to pitch, please answer a couple of quick questions here.
