FAQ

About the Cambia Grove        

Why did you create the Cambia Grove?
Cambia Grove was launched in 2015 by Cambia Health Solutions to connect a community of health care changemakers. Cambia Health Solutions, a tax-paying not-for-profit business, has provided all funding for the Cambia Grove in support of its efforts to make health care more accessible, affordable and accountable to patients. We have grown and evolved since then to target system wide opportunities to drive large-scale health care transformation. 

Is the Cambia Grove a neutral convener?
Yes. We welcome and need everyone from across the health care sectors—patients, providers, policy makers, purchasers,  and payers –to join us in conversation, working together with a community of entrepreneurs and innovators to pursue a more person-focused and economically sustainable health care system.

It all starts with relationships — and trust — which is cultivated in communities over time.

What is Cambia Grove’s vision, mission, and goals?
Vision: A health care system that embraces innovation.

Mission: To bridge the gap between entrepreneurs and the traditional health care sectors to drive health care transformation towards a more person-focused, economically sustainable health care system.

Goals:

  • Build Community: Connect, nurture and expand a community of health care changemakers to support development of new health care solutions
  • Catalyze Solutions: Catalyze solutions to system level barriers preventing innovation in health care
