Healthcare Innovation: The New Future in the Washington Metro Region

  • Fairfax County Economic Development Authority 8300 Boone Boulevard, Suite 450 Vienna, VA, 22182 United States (map)

The healthcare industry has experienced a tsunami of innovations aimed at enhancing life expectancy, quality of life, diagnostic and treatment options, as well as the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the healthcare system. In the Washington Metro area, multiple companies and hospitals drive the innovation in healthcare. 

Major innovation occurs especially between industries and disciplines and that is no different than between healthcare and technology. Healthcare innovation can be described as the introduction of a new concept, idea, service, process, or product aimed at improving treatment, diagnosis, education, outreach, prevention and research, and with the long term goals of improving quality, safety, outcomes, efficiency and costs.

During the luncheon two industry leading innovators will present their products with respect to patients and the healthcare industry.
