MIT CBI and Department of Biological Engineering to co-host major healthcare innovation symposium

On Feb. 1, 2011, the MIT Center for Biomedical Innovation (CBI) and MIT Department of Biological Engineering will co-host the Innovation in Healthcare Symposium: Systems Thinking from Discovery to Delivery at MIT’s Kresge Auditorium. The daylong event will be a forum to stimulate new ways of thinking to address today's greatest healthcare challenges. Speakers will include Michael Porter, Janet Woodcock, Peter Senge, and Don Berwick, among others.

The symposium will consist of three multi-disciplinary, expert panels structured around three major topics: improving healthcare delivery to patients, reversing the declining productivity of biomedical research, and applying lessons learned by other industries to guide a transformation of the healthcare system. Following the three panels, there will be a question-and-answer session comprising young leaders currently working in the healthcare field discussing how the issues raised by the previous panels impact their work.
