On February 14, 2017, TechTown Detroit will host the MedHealth Summit, an event that will bring together health care organizations and innovators in an effort to catalyze the development of solutions and adoption of technologies that use digital health solutions and medical devices to solve key health care challenges in Southeast Michigan and Southwest Ontario. The MedHealth Summit is intended to serve as a platform for collaborative innovation, providing a myriad of opportunities for networking and education about medical device and digital health innovation in our region.
The event will also hold the MedHealth Challenge, which is an opportunity for innovators to submit medical device and digital health concepts to meet the needs of health providers. Applications are now being accepted for two tracks – early stage companies and market ready companies – and closes January 6, 2017.
Finalists will be notified by February 6, 2017. Additionally, one-on-one engagements between innovators and "end-users" (payers & providers such as Henry Ford Health Systems, DMC/Tenet, Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, Ascension | Genesys Health System and more) will be conducted via a matching process for select startups that apply by January 6th.
A tentative agenda is available here. In addition to the MedHealth Challenge competition, the event will have a keynote speaker, panel discussions, networking opportunities and the debut of a "Medhealth Commercialization Pathfinder" tool.
