Opportunities in the US Public Health Sector for Finnish Digital and Tele-health Companies and Research Institutions

Please join us to learn how digital health is implemented in the US public health sector – the Department of Defense, the US Navy, the Veterans Administration, and the NIH (National Institutes of Health). We will map out how each agency works, "How to" contact and talk with them, and explore possible opportunities for co-development, collaborative research, and pilots for Finnish companies.

You will learn about US healthcare structure, Biden administration's healthcare objectives, post-Covid trends and issues, and about the Federal Health IT Strategy.

The take-away: It is possible to work with the US public sector.
Need some guidance to navigate these agencies? We will explain how.
