We are thrilled to announce our newest Solutions Lab topic!
- The community has expressed that a lack of clarity around how the health care system engages with entrepreneurs can be a barrier to innovation; therefore, Cambia Grove has selected the issue as our third Solutions Lab topic
- Our goals are to 1) clarify the roles and processes within the traditional health care system dedicated to engaging with entrepreneurs & 2) identify areas where Cambia Grove can provide additional support for the community
- To understand the full scope of opportunities, we interviewed ~40 stakeholders representing the traditional health care system and the entrepreneur community
Identify Challenges and Opportunities
- We then took the community's valuable insights and distilled them down to three common themes and 11 potential community-powered initiatives
- Based off of our findings, we launched the Impactful Innovation Exchange! The exchange is a comprehensive platform where changemakers can search for emerging and/or proven innovations to solve health care problems.
- Check out this working document of our initial findings that is guiding our efforts to build out projects from the community-powered inventory of ideas
