Ryan Kelly, PhD
General Manager, Innovation Lab
General Manager, Cleveland Clinic Innovations
Very often those closest to the problem are most equipped to know how to solve it! Unfortunately, in healthcare, the resources and capabilities have not always been readily available to help scale solutions that can be brought to market for the benefit of all. In this session, hear from industry leading organizations that are addressing the full continuum of provider-based “inside out” innovation. They will share insights in commercialization, development, funding, and collaboration to reach true impact.

Fast, Forward and Focused
Founder & CEO, Herjavec Group
Technology is constantly transforming, creating new possibilities and risks in the business world. This is true of all industries but none more so than in the healthcare space, where compliance requirements, privacy and patient safety are of the utmost priority. Founder & CEO of cybersecurity operations leader Herjavec Group, Robert Herjavec, will explore the evolving cyber landscape as it relates to the healthcare industry. There is no light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to cyber warfare – so how are healthcare providers adapting, transforming, and scaling their business strategies to face this battle head on?
