Convene Stakeholders

  • Based on feedback from our stakeholders, we chose to focus on data as the first topic for the Solution Series
  • Health data is a complex topic, and challenges and opportunities in this space vary greatly depending on perspective
  • To understand the full scope of opportunities, we interviewed 74 stakeholders representing 55 unique organizations* 
  • Our interviews covered the traditional health care sectors, the entrepreneur community, and enterprise organizations committed to innovation in health care 

Identify Challenges and Opportunities 

  • We then took the community’s valuable insights and distilled them down to 8 common themes and 19 potential community-powered solutions
  • We created an inventory of initial findings and immediately began to work on the highest priority opportunity 

Catalyze Solutions

  1. Data Resource Directory: While data is abundant in the health care system, it is difficult to access. To bridge this gap, we built a Data Resource Directory, which connects our community with the resources they need  
  2. Fellowship Program: It also became clear that the community wants to use real data to drive towards meaningful change; in response, Cambia Grove and Fred Hutch will provide entrepreneurs with an opportunity to tackle big data challenges through a joint Fellowship Program
  3. We continue to revisit our inventory and develop solutions for other high-priority challenges; to learn more about this Solution Series topic and next steps, please visit this blog post and stay tuned for updates in the upcoming months by signing up for our newsletter

*NOTE: All stakeholder interviews were conducted in confidence to enable candid discussion and open dialogue; feedback has been anonymized and summarized.
