On Thursday, March 21, 2019 the New Jersey Innovation Institute and the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute will host the 5th Annual Innovation Showcase at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, NJ. 

This year’s theme is Using Data to Drive Value Innovation, which we’ll dig into by facilitating conversation between technology experts, policy experts, and providers. Before our exciting breakout sessions to dig deeper into topics such as Government, Innovation, and Value, two esteemed speakers will deliver Keynote addresses: Michael O. Leavitt, former Governor of Utah who served as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (2003-2005) and secretary of Health and Human Services (2005-2009); and Aneesh Chopra, President of CareJourney, author, and first ever U.S. Chief Technology Officer (2009-2012).

This Annual Innovation Showcase is funded in part by our generous sponsors and in part by the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative, a CMS funded program that aims to help clinicians achieve transformation that will help them maximize their success under the new MACRA law. 

Attending the 5th Annual Innovation Showcase is free of charge, and enters you to win one of four $250 cash prizes! Complimentary light breakfast will be served.
