“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change (especially in Health Care Innovation!)” – Heraclitus

by Kristin Helps, RN  

The concept of one lifelong linear career is over! You might not be able to predict exactly where your career path will take you but if you can learn how to be resilient, you can be successful. If you are a clinician who is interested in expanding your career into the technology space or someone with a business or IT background with no medical background looking to transition into the health care space join us to hear from individuals who have done it!

Come meet a diverse panel of Seattle area health care technology and innovation leaders and learn how you can enhance your own career resilience. You will hear their unique perspectives on the strategies they have used to manage their own careers, what they have done to expand their skill sets, how they tackle uncertainty, drive innovation in their organizations and are transforming what it means to be in healthcare innovation. Making a change in healthcare is a marathon, not a sprint and we want to help our community prepare for the opportunities ahead. ​ Sponsored by the Cambia Grove, Seattle Health Innovators, and Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
