How am I inventing the future of medicine

Seismic changes are underway in American healthcare and there are significant implications for innovators – those who wish to create products, procedures or policies that contribute to the this transformation.  The University of Washington and the the array of health related institutions and companies in Washington State are well positioned to be leaders in these changes.  Success will bring enormous benefits to healthcare, the economy and society as a whole.

Bioengineering, in partnership with the School of Medicine, the Washington Biomedical and Biotechnology Association and other regional entities, has established the Health Innovators Collaborative to advance information sharing, resource availability, joint projects and creation of new initiatives related to seizing the opportunities presented by the unprecedented changes in healthcare.  The Collaborative, its mission and its programs are described under the Innovations tab on the Bioengineering departmental page.
