State of Biomedical Innovation Conference
On July 16, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings hosted the second annual State of Biomedical Innovation conference. The goal of this conference was to assess U.S. biomedical innovation and discuss policy solutions that ensure the nation remains a world leader. This year, the conference featured an update to last year’s discussion of the drivers of innovation and how best to track them through use of comprehensive metrics. In addition, the conference specifically focused on novel sources and applications of big data in innovation, with senior-level thought leaders from government, academia, industry, patient advocacy, and clinical care present to share their views and recommendations.
