The Cambia Grove convenes many organizations, large and small, that have a stake in the region’s health care sector. Among other things, it’s a space where providers, health plans and employers can discuss their business challenges with entrepreneurs and commission pilot projects that could lead to new companies in areas such as technology-enabled health care services, big data analytics, and new consumer-focused solutions that reduce costs.
Our Anchor Partners embody the spirit of collaboration and innovation that is the inspiration behind our space. Each Anchor Partner has committed to one pilot per year with us. We are honored they have taken this important first step.
