Inspire 2017

Cincinnati’s premier healthcare event and awards celebration

Plan to join us November 1, 2017 to celebrate health and healthcare innovation in Cincinnati

At The Health Collaborative, we’re passionate about finding new ways to use data, engaging in projects that advance patient safety, and identifying innovative ways to bring our stakeholders together to improve care across the continuum. But we can’t do any of it alone – our members and partners across the region help make it all possible. That’s why we take time each year to recognize and celebrate the important work being done to advance the triple aim of better health, better care, and lower costs in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

The Renaissance, 36 East 4th St., Cincinnati, OH 45202
