Event Details

The international Society for Pediatric Innovation (iSPI) is holding its annual Leadership Forum at Cleveland’s Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. This year’s forum will focus on Human-Centered Design, Biomimicry, Rare Disease Diagnosis, FDA Processes, etc.

The purpose of iSPI is to continue to build an open and global community of pediatric hospitals, all joining forces to leverage innovation to improve the lives of children everywhere. iSPI provides a unique forum for pediatric innovation leaders representing hospitals from around the world to come together, exchange ideas, share knowledge, and learn from the collective experience, so when it comes to under­standing and adopting new innovations, hospitals everywhere will have the same opportu­nity to benefit from the collective wisdom, as we enter an unheralded era of “exponential convergence”.
