Konya, in addition to developing innovation strategy, also serves as a key liaison for innovation-related projects. He specifically targets engagement opportunities with startups, investors and the healthcare innovation community at large.
A panel of Wisconsin experts will join Konya to discuss how these initiatives play out locally and statewide. Panelists include Dan Blake, partner at HealthX Ventures; Ben West, chief technology officer at Health eFilings; and Subbu Ravi, chief operating officer at Forward Health Group.
“Wisconsin and the Madison area, in particular, are hubs for healthcare information technology,” said Tom Still, president of the Tech Council. “We’re thrilled to offer this chance for Wisconsin’s strong companies and investors to hear this federal perspective on national trends.”
