Finding, adapting and replicating health-care-delivery solutions from around the world to improve cost, access and quality

This project will identify successful innovations and support entrepreneurs to replicate successful innovations in health and health-care-delivery from around the world to improve cost, access and quality.

IPIHD will determine deliverables each year of the project's three years; for the first year, it has set out to (1) develop a website for innovators to share information; (2) establish a mentorship program that matches innovators with industry executives; (3) hold an investor-innovator conference; and (4) identify at least 12 delivery solutions from around the world.
