Harvard Business School and Harvard Medical School's Forum on Health Care Innovation invites you to an exclusive opportunity to debate what's next in health care.
"Some of the greatest health care innovations have taken decades to reach widespread adoption, yet the iPhone had more than 500 million users in 7 years. There is no good reason why we can't accelerate the pace of innovation in health care to improve care and reduce costs."
Barbara J. McNeil, MD
This invitation-only event convenes global experts, Harvard faculty, and influential alumni from all sectors of the industry.
Building momentum for change—across sectors—is the goal. Participants are key contributors, not passive attendees. Come share your ideas on how to move health care forward, more quickly.
Registration is closed for this event.

Here’s what alumni had to say about the previous Health Care Forum:
“Certainly one of the best conferences I have ever attended.”
“Diverse group with expertise in a wide array of areas. Lots of great ideas and insights.”
“I liked the participatory aspect that involved the audience. It added a lot to the conversation.”
