Collaborating Across a Supercluster

Massachusetts contains a supercluster of companies across all health care industries from health IT, biotech/life sciences, med device, health services, to consumer health like none other in the world.  Industry leaders are saying that cross-industry collaboration around transformative technology is driving tremendous opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship unique to the region.  But the opportunities also come with challenges. 

A New Event to Move Us Forward

CareFWD will CELEBRATE Greater Boston’s renowned health care innovations, hold a TOWN HALL to identify opportunities and challenges to maintaining Massachusetts as the premier destination for health care innovation, and INSPIRE with vision talks on trends transforming all health care industries.
