The 5 Points of Health Care is a Cambia Grove original framework designed to better understand the health care system by breaking the system into five distinct sectors: Patients, Payers, Providers, Policymakers and Purchasers.
Utilizing this framework, Cambia Grove has designed a programming series with the goal of lowering the barrier to entry for innovators seeking to make changes in the health care system. Throughout the program, entrepreneurs will be introduced to the primary stakeholders in health care in such a way that they understand the challenges and where they can fit in to find innovative solutions to the critical issues facing the system.
Under the Boughs is an event series hosted by the Cambia Grove in partnership with the University of Washington BioEngage program. The series brings together national thought leaders from around the country to discuss the future of health care with series founder, moderator and UW President Emeritus, Lee Huntsman.
During the course of the 90-minute fireside chat, Huntsman guides an interactive dialogue covering an array of issues relevant to health care transformation.
The Traction and Implementation Lead to Solutions (TRAILS) is a competition designed to provide promising startups access to real-world testing and application within the health care system to gain working knowledge of how the system works. Through this experience, startups can iterate on their solution to make it a lean, high-value product.
We know that innovating in health care is hard — there are system-level barriers preventing our health care system from truly transforming to be more person-focused and economically sustainable. Moderated by Cambia Grove’s Executive in Residence, Dr. Bob Crittenden, these roundtable meetings are designed to bring together subject matter experts and the innovator community for a vigorous conversation about successes along the road to implementation.
Cambia Grove’s mission is to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs and the traditional health care sectors. We know that innovating in health care is hard. There are system-level barriers preventing our health care sector from transforming to be more person-focused and economically sustainable.
Join Dr. Bob Crittenden, Cambia Grove’s Executive in Residence, for a small roundtable discussion focused on listening to you, the innovator. Dr. Bob will be asking various questions: What barriers are you facing? What has worked well? What has not worked so well? How can Cambia Grove help the community catalyze health care innovation?
Office hours are one-on-one appointments hosted by members of the Cambia Grove Sounding Board, for those working toward health care transformation.
Lunch & Learn at Cambia Grove, presented by Echo Health Ventures, is a monthly lunch dedicated to educating and preparing startups for the investment pipeline. Through the Lunch & Learn series, service providers provide lunch, networking and an intimate Q&A experience with companies that health care startups may work with as their businesses develop.
For entrepreneurs, Lunch & Learn offers opportunities to connect with other innovators over lunch and to expand their subject matter expertise through an investor’s lens. The emphasis is on actionable insights, not sales pitches.
Cambia Grove open houses bring together leaders from the health care community as well as investors, entrepreneurs and other professionals eager to fuel innovation. These informal, quarterly breakfasts are an excellent opportunity to make connections that can lead directly to your next business venture. We invite you to gather with other community members for coffee, bagels and networking.
Cambia Grove and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center are pleased to announce the inaugural Cambia Grove Innovator Fellowship program. This program is designed to break down barriers to innovation by connecting a select group of entrepreneurial fellows with real world data challenges. The first cohort will have the opportunity to work with scientists and meet with leaders from one of the nation’s leading cancer research institutes to tackle big data challenges.
This series was built upon the idea that the community has all the right ingredients to solve big health care challenges. Cambia Grove convenes stakeholders around high-priority topics, identifies specific challenges and opportunities associated with each topic, and catalyzes solutions to support system-wide transformation.
