LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 9, 2018) – The Louisville Healthcare CEO Council is seeking information about large-scale solutions for optimizing the healthcare experience of patients and caregivers.
The organization released its first-ever request for information as it seeks opportunities to transform the experiences of the patient and caregiver by assessing their unique needs, providing answers to healthcare questions, and quickly and easily connecting the patient and caregiver to resources that are ideally local, community-based, and accessible.
The global RFI responses will help inform the LHCC’s efforts to solve pressing healthcare problems in our region and beyond. LHCC plans to use responses to inform a Request for Proposals (RFP), to be released in September, which will solicit solutions for caregivers and their families. The proposal selection process will culminate in LHCC’s first global reverse pitch in late fall.
The Louisville Healthcare CEO Council is made up of 12 CEOs who play an active role in the local and national healthcare community. They are committed to highlighting and utilizing all the resources of the Louisville community to bring jobs, innovation and investment to Louisville.
Members include CEOs from Kindred, Humana, Trilogy Heath Services, Passport Heath Plan, Norton Healthcare, Hosparus Health, Anthem, Apellis Pharmaceuticals, Signature Healthcare, Galen College of Nursing, Baptist Health System and PharMerica. Together, these CEOs are working hard to see Louisville become a center for excellence in aging innovation.
The companies in the Louisville Healthcare CEO Council are titans in the industry, collectively representing over 240,000 employees and $165 billion in revenue.
“We have all three legs of the success stool to provide you anything you need to grow your idea, start-up or mature business: infrastructure, intellectual capital, and investors,” said York Day. “If you can’t find support for your aging innovation idea here, you won’t find it anywhere.”
The goal of LHCC is to raise the spotlight on Louisville as a robust and competitive catalyst for innovation. The goal is simple, but profound. LHCC will foster collaboration in this sector to create jobs, innovation and investment in Louisville.
