The Department of Health and Human Services has extended to Oct. 12 the deadline to recommend health care leaders to participate in HHS Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan’s Innovation and Investment Summit. Announced last month, the summit will meet quarterly over the next year to discuss emerging opportunities and how the government can facilitate and accelerate health care innovation. The public may recommend participants by emailing DeputySecretary@HHS.gov with the subject line “DSIIS Recommendation.” For more information, see the HHS FAQ. In comments submitted in July, AHA voiced strong support for HHS’s proposal to develop a workgroup to facilitate public-private dialogue on innovating and investing in the health care sector.
