About Us

Health Innovation NW is a Washington non-profit corporation.

We are a grassroots organization formed because of the need to create deeper connections within the health innovation community in Seattle. We started by organizing the Seattle Health Innovation Forum in May 2013. From the caliber of speakers to the non-stop mingling among our members that we have had, we knew we had formed something bigger than just a meetup group. After 3 years of organizing events together, in 2016 we founded Health Innovation NW, a Washington non-profit corporation, so that we can take our collaboration to new levels. There is so much more we can do together to make a positive impact locally and globally.

Our mission

Our mission is to empower individual change agents in health and life sciences to connect, to educate the community, and to directly advance health innovation.

What we’re doing

We produce educational forums, research projects, networking opportunities, leadership development programs, and collaborative initiatives to advance health innovation

In healthcare, in order to challenge the norms and push the boundaries, we need to first understand the current state of healthcare, and then to empower those daring innovators by creating a supporting community around them.

It’s simple. You are the innovators and we want to be your support.

Health Innovation NW exists to address the need to support innovators working on the technologies, business models, and services to transform healthcare as we know it to achieve better results in an economically sustainable way. We hope to provide a way for innovators to connect with each other and with the community.  We provide a forum for sharing insights from startups, existing healthcare institutions, life science researchers, and individuals interested in the dramatic changes occurring in the global health system.

Call to action

We would LOVE for you to give back to the community by volunteering to help; whether it’s speaker recommendation, sponsor opportunity, sharing of your own story, participating in a service project, or simply be an advocate for the group. Feel free to contact usWe look forward to working with you!

    Hi,

    I would be glad to help you out in any number of ways.. I was the national project director for HHS/Office of the National Coordinator in DC last year (I live in Seattle) and taught 63 regional extension centers how to develop new health care service lines and have been a judge and mentor for RWJF, PCORI, Microsoft/Techstars etc.

    I was also the president elect of HIMSS Washington and have served on multiple health boards (INHS Beacon project) and committees (Puget Sound Health Alliance, Washington State Hospital Association) across the region and state with a focus on patient centered design and health informatics.

  1. Xerox’s innovative heritage did not stop at the copier. We’ve invented the mouse, touch screen, and numerous other innovative breakthroughs. We own the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) and continue to innovate particularly in the realm of healthcare. We would like to contribute to the innovative atmosphere at Seattle Health Innovators.
    I hope to be involved as the Pacific Northwest Regional representative for Xerox Health at Seattle Innovators. When is the next event or meeting that I could attend?

    Thank you and I appreciate your consideration.

    Sincerely,
    Morris Pettit
