Field notes from a Brigham Innovation Manager at JPM18
The business cards are sorted, the follow-up e-mails have been sent, and my Twitter thumb muscles are iced and recovered – that’s right, #JPM18 is over.
There are a thousand articles recapping health care trends, “startups to watch” and #overheard moments this week as we all head back to our offices. There are plenty of reporters and thought leaders more JPM-seasoned than I am, so I’ll leave that to the pros.
Instead, I’ll cover why I believe hospital innovation teams can benefit from attending.
