This group is dedicated to advancing innovations that focus on improving patient care with the active involvement of Patients, Physicians, Nurses, Administrators, Engineers, and even Lawyers.  If your interest is in improving the practice and performance of medicine, than this is the meetup for you.

Eugene Borukovich started the New York Health Innovation Group in 2008.  Not long after he affiliated with the Health 2.0 organization and became the first local chapter of the new conference company Our chapter has since grown to become the largest healthcare innovation focused meetup in the world, running events that focus on specific topics such as the impact of social media in Healthcare or our Startup pitch contest called "Pitch Yourself into the Shark Tank."  The investments, partnerships and collaborations that have come from this meetup are myriad, as we work to foster the genesis, growth and development of innovative technology companies.  A few of the companies that have presented: Phreesia, Zweena, ZocDoc, HelloHealth, Medivo, Avado, YourNurseIsOn, DrChrono, ComScore, HealthLeap, MyHealthExperience, Healthrageous, WellApps, and over a hundred more.  We have hosted HealthCamp and Todd Park, Bryan Sivak, Regina Holliday, and representatives from every major Healthcare Venture Capital and Angel group in the Northeast.  The net result is a community of health innovators, accelerators, venture capitalists, hospitals, doctors, patients programmers, and more with a can do attitude that is changing healthcare every day.

I organize this group as my way of saying thanks for helping my team and I launch FairCareMD in 2010 and MedStartr in 2012...but this isn't about me, it is what our thousands of members, creators and adopters of healthcare innovation can do for healthcare.

Who presents here?

  • Patients who have defined issues to be addressed and / or designed apps to improve their health and the health of others
  • Physicians who create innovative care models, develop solutios, or simply are looking for new ways to address the problems they see
  • Entrepreneurs who create new innovative healthcare solutions
  • Hospital Executives driving development and adoption of new ideas
  • Nurses who reinvent nursing management or point of care solutions
  • Investors, Angels, and VCs looking for the next big thing
  • Pharma, Insurance, and Diagnostics companies that look for new technologies and companies to work with
  • Pharmacists who design better medication management, adherence, distribution or other systems
  • Game Designers who make patient education fun
  • Quantification companies that help people self-monitor (see also Quantified Self meetup)
  • Engineers, Programmers, and Hackers that invent and enable new care paradigms
  • Designers who love to design Killer Apps for Healthy Living
  • Innovative Government leaders seeking positive change
  • Reporters and Bloggers who want to see the cutting edge before it happens and spread the word
  • and so many more amazing people and companies...

Mostly what we have are the leaders of the NYC healthcare innovation scene.  By putting us all together in one place, we are creating the future of healthcare and making New York the healthcare innovation capital of the world.

We are always looking for start-ups and individuals to present the ideas or products they are passionate about. Please be welcome to join the conversation, propose a topic, or suggest an alternative format. We are a largely user-driven group, so suggest a topic and we will do the most popular event.

We also enable more established companies to get their message out to the healthcare innovation community through sponsorship and speaking.  So if there is an event, challenge, or product release you would like to talk about, please contact me.

Thanks for visiting, we hope to see you soon!
