Second annual Health Pitch event set for August 14

Health Pitch, a regional event that showcases innovative health care ideas, is set for its second annual appearance in Fargo on August 14, 2014. Family HealthCare, a patient-centered non-profit, is hosting the event at The Stage at Island Park from 3:30 – 6:30 pm.

cropped-fhclogo_redgreenFamily HealthCare’s mission includes providing affordable, compassionate, dignified, and respectful medical and dental care to people in Cass and Clay counties, regardless of age, nationality, or ability to pay. To that end, for the second year in a row, they have invited 15 regional leaders and experts in the field to pitch new and fresh ideas to solve healthcare problems and to improve the well being of the community at large.

“At Family HealthCare, we always look for ways to become more efficient and deliver the best patient experience,” said Pat Gulbranson, Chief Executive Officer at Family HealthCare. “The Health Pitch event will help us and other healthcare providers stay abreast with technology advancements and new concepts for delivering care, so we can serve patients at lower costs, while maintaining the highest quality standards.”

Industry leaders and participants have three minutes to pitch their ideas in front of an audience of peers and community members. Pitch topics will include mobile healthcare apps, new medical technologies, mental health awareness, and more.

Headlining the event is keynote speaker, Shane Waslaski, president and CEO of Intelligent InSites, an innovative software company which transforms healthcare with operational intelligence that improves care, enhances the human experience, and increases efficiency.

Other speakers include:

All community members interested in improving regional health care are invited to attend. Proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Family HealthCare, with each $25 ticket covering the health care costs for a patient who would not ordinarily be able to pay for such care. Health Pitch 2014 has been made possible through community sponsors, including the Dakota Medical Foundation.
