The New Orleans Business Alliance created the NOLA Health Innovators Challenge (NOLAHI) in 2017 to drive healthcare innovation and investment in the city. The organization, in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana and Ochsner Health System, are continuing to build a community of collaboration and connection in their second year.
On November 9, the partner businesses will host a launch event at the New Orleans Jazz Market featuring opening remarks, the challenge statement for 2018, a fireside chat, and words from other stakeholders in the local healthcare community.
The Health Innovators Challenge will eventually culminate at a pitch event during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week in the spring.
“NOLAHI is another proof point that economic development matters because people matter,” said Quentin L. Messer, Jr., president and CEO of the New Orleans Business Alliance. “More than the promise of attracting the most creative digital health companies to New Orleans, NOLAHI’s potential to transform health outcomes of patients throughout the state is why NOLABA is so honored to be a part of this initiative.”
