HIMSS NCA Education Session — Public Private Partnerships: Creating the Marketplace for Health Innovation
September 18, 2014
Rosslyn, VA
HIMSS NCA

The U.S. public sector is under financial pressure to reduce costs, especially in healthcare, and at the same time step up the pace of health care innovation. With the national health system undergoing significant transition, new and exciting opportunities for public-private sector collaboration are present. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) offer a mechanism for governments to finance better healthcare infrastructure, biomedical research and clinical service delivery. They represent a solution, bringing private investment to healthcare in a beneficial model for private enterprise and resource-constrained governments. In the United States, federal agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and National Institutes for Health (NIH), and private sector efforts such as the eHealth Initiative and Data Transparency Coalition have created programs for establishing and sustaining public-private partnerships for specific purposes, such as facilitating collaborations to improve public health through open data and participative biomedical research. Join us in the conversation with government and private sector executives who will discuss their challenges and barriers with PPPs.
