August 6, 2020 | Virtual Summit
3rd Annual Northwell Health Innovation Summit

Northwell Health will once again be convening an elite group of leading executives, investors, philanthropists and entrepreneurs to come together virtually to form strategic partnerships and elevate the field of health innovation.


The Constellation Forum
Elevating the Field of
Healthcare Innovation

This year’s forum is more important than ever, as the COVID-19 Pandemic has shone a spotlight on the increased demands on healthcare innovation — and on those who come together to bring it to life.

Whether in accelerating research and investment, managing supply shock and demand spikes, balancing patient triage with distance care and telehealth, coordinating system-wide load management while dealing with cost-sharing and overruns, and more, we have seen smart innovation and groundbreaking technology play a key role in overcoming this ongoing crisis.

Northwell Health has been at the center of this storm, treating more patients than any other system globally, and has seen first-hand the challenges we are facing and opportunities that lie ahead. In an ever more globalized world, The Constellation Forum will explore what we can learn from our efforts today in order to prepare others — and ourselves — for whatever comes tomorrow.
