Health innovators and entrepreneurs from around Indiana are invited to join the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) presented by KSM Consulting in partnership with TechPoint, Barnes & Thornburg, and Regenstrief Institute for Indiana Startup Days with HHS.

Indiana Startup Days with HHS, which are hosted around the country, give health innovators and entrepreneurs an opportunity to discuss the hottest topics in healthcare, technology, and innovation. Join HHS’s Chief Technology Officer and acting Chief Information Officer, Ed Simcox—as well as other HHS leaders—and delve into HHS’s current vision, priorities, and processes.
