accelerate Innovation

Curbing the growth of healthcare spending is better done through innovation, not regulation. We serve as both a promoter and supporter of new healthcare innovations in the state and welcome ideas to support your efforts. We address challenges that come with innovation, including lack of awareness, lack of partners, lack of reliable data to demonstrate value, and lack of funding.

Innovation Advisory Board (IAB) 

What is the iaB? 

The IAB is an appointed group of individuals who review requests for the Collaborative to support innovation projects. We are honored to have this distinguished board as a part of the Collaborative.
