Healthcare Innovation Expo
Due to the current work underway to renew the Cannon House Office Building during the Cannon Renewal Project, HLC will not be hosting the Healthcare Innovation Expo in 2017.
The Cannon House Office Building is the oldest office building on the Capitol campus, dating back to 1908. Due to its advanced age, the Cannon Building is undergoing a top-to-bottom renewal.
The Healthcare Leadership Council believes that members of Congress can make better-informed decisions on important health policy issues if they can see firsthand the new treatments, technologies and medicines that are improving the lives of patients and healthcare consumers.
That’s why, each year, HLC sponsors an Innovation Expo on Capitol Hill. This is an opportunity for HLC member companies and organizations to present their new and noteworthy innovations to lawmakers and influential congressional staff. Members of Congress have remarked at the event that it’s one thing to hear testimony about the benefits of, for example, health information technology, but another thing altogether to personally test the technologies that are improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of healthcare.
The 2016 event featured displays from Aetna, AMN Healthcare, Ascension, athenahealth, Boehringer Ingelheim, Change Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Leidos, McKesson, Medtronic, Merck, Nestlé Health Science, Novartis, Novo Nordisk, Premier, Stryker, Surescripts, Walgreens, and Weight Watchers.
