Uncommon Clarity – 05/24/10

MAY 24

Following our co-hosting of last weeks’ fifth annual Wireless-Life Sciences Investor Day & Summit with our partners Qualcomm and Johnson & Johnson, we couldn’t be more bullish about the healthcare innovations on display.

The recurring theme of the event was improving healthcare access, quality and affordability – which was echoed by presenter Dr. Hyung Kim, MD; Vice President of Research for Ascension Health as he talked through Ascension’s key initiatives including:

  • Operating more effectively in terms of cost and quality
  • Remaining focused on serving the poorest and most vulnerable people in the communities they serve
  • Getting physicians closer their patients
  • Managing the uncertainty of reform
 

Here are some news stories we’re watching this week:
