Please join Health 2.0 New Orleans for an evening with Dr. Anjum Khurshid, Director of Health Systems at the Louisiana Public Health Institute (http://www.lphi.org/home2/) (LPHI). Dr. Khurshid is the Principal Investigator for the new Louisiana Clinical Data Research Network (LACDRN), which received almost $7 million in funding for the deployment of a new health information technology infrastructure for clinical reporting with a focus on diabetes, obesity, sickle cell, and rare cancers. The funding comes from the National Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/pcori-funds-30-patient-outcomes-projects) (PCORI), and LPHI will collaborate with Tulane University, the Pennington Biomedical Research Institute and Ochsner Health Systems. The project is expected to drive several new opportunities in entrepreneurship, health information technology and job creation across the region.
In addition, Propeller Programs Manager Julia Stewart will briefly discuss PitchNOLA 2014: Living Well (http://gopropeller.org/pitchnola/pitchnola-food-health/). Propeller’s newest PitchNOLA competition offers $10,000 in total start-up funding for solutions that will encourage a healthier, more active and better-nourished New Orleans.
