Deputy Secretary Hargan Announces Collaboration to Accelerate Innovation and Investment in Healthcare – Call for Participants

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking recommendations for private sector leaders to participate in the  “Deputy Secretary’s Innovation and Investment Summit” (DSIIS) working group, a yearlong collaboration between innovation and investment professionals and HHS personnel. The DSIIS will produce a dialogue around accelerating new investment and research in healthcare. DSIIS participants will participate in quarterly meetings and an “Industry Day” gathering.

This effort is a follow-up to the June 2018 HHS-issued request for information regarding the formation of a working group to encourage investment and innovation in healthcare.

HHS is accepting recommendations for participants until October 3, 2018.  More information about selection criteria and submission instructions is available here.
