Several selected finalists competing in our National Innovation Contest will pitch their ideas for solving the “Inventor’s Dilemma” for cost-lowering health care technology before a distinguished panel of health care entrepreneurs, executives, and venture capitalist for cash prizes and the opportunity to take their ideas to the next level!

Patel, Director of Penn Medicine Nudge Unit and Assistant Professor of Medicine and Health Care Management at the University of Pennsylvania along with panel discussions, and concurrent breakout sessions.
