“We’re not going to re-imagine healthcare just through the largest and most powerful organizations that have dominated the space for the past fifty years. And it won’t happen with startups alone. We have to do it together. Because if we don’t, we are trending towards a five trillion dollar problem that can bring our country to its knees.
If you are passionate about reimagining healthcare, you have a seat at our table.”
– Mike Biselli, TEDx RiNo
