HHS Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan on Sept. 19 unveiled the Deputy Secretary's Innovation and Investment Summit, a yearlong collaboration between agency personnel and private sector leaders.

On an annual basis, the summit will invite selected healthcare innovators and investors to participate in quarterly meetings to discuss emerging opportunities within the healthcare space, emphasizing ways the government could facilitate more investment and accelerated innovation throughout the industry.

The initial summit meeting will evaluate key areas of interest to explore, while following meetings will focus on promising opportunities and whether government policies are accelerating or delaying potential innovations.

HHS will accept recommendations for summit participants from Sept. 19 to Oct. 3. The agency will consider selection criteria including field of expertise, executive or other organizational leadership experience, private equity experience, and lending experience within the healthcare sector.

Mr. Hargan's announcement follows a request for information HHS issued in June, seeking public comment on an initiative to spur innovation and investment in the healthcare industry.

"Collaboration between HHS and private sector investors and innovators is critical to advancing new solutions and evolving healthcare in America," Mr. Hargan said in a news release. "We believe this will produce new approaches that will improve the health and well-being of the American people."
