The Health Innovators Collaborative, in partnership with UW Medicine and the Washington Biotechnology and Biomedical Association, seeks to assist the health care innovation ecosystem in Washington state as it adapts to the profound changes underway in American health care. The Collaborative will work with companies, research groups and educational programs to facilitate information exchange, educational opportunities, partnership development and shared resource utilization.
Goals of the Health Innovators Collaborative
- Facilitate information exchange about the needs and opportunities emerging as health care evolves
- Provide educational opportunities, especially ways for UW students to achieve an initial exposure to the changing realities of health care and thereby enhance their prospects for employment related to these changes
- Connect people and organizations with complementary interests
- Share current information about unique facilities and resources available to innovators seeking to advance a new idea
