Health Innovations Forum
Mission & Objectives

The Health Innovations Forum (HIF) was established to identify and evaluate technology or solutions-based startups with the potential to improve employee health and/or the efficiency, delivery or consumer experience within the health care system. The Forum’s goal is to accelerate adoption of disruptive and effective innovations.

 

The HIF provides a venue through which startups can be assessed by HR and Benefits executives from several of the world's largest companies. Leveraging the Business Group platform, startups with the most compelling value proposition will gain exposure to and potential entry into the large employer market.

Forum Participants

The HIF consists of Business Group member companies with a strong interest in innovation and experience as early adopters of new solutions. Forum members will help assess the value proposition and operational readiness of startups offering new solutions for the large employer market.

Application FAQs

Applications may be submitted to the Health Innovations Forum using our online application tool. Apply Here.

The application is divided into two steps:

  • 1 | Assessment: Six questions seeking basic information about your health care solution. Your answers determine whether your proposed solution will pass the applicability and value proposition factors that large employers are seeking. Assessments typically take 5 business days to determine if you meet the criteria.
  • 2 | Full Application: If approved, you will be asked to complete the full application. The application will ask you to share additional information about your company, its operational readiness and capabilities, as well as the cost and requirements to implement the solution.
The application will include questions on:
  • The Value Proposition for Employers;
  • The Effectiveness of the Solution;
  • Operational Capabilities and Readiness;
  • Cost; and
  • Requirements for Implementation.

There is no fee to complete the application. However, if selected to present to the Health Innovations Forum, there is a fee of $3,500 required to secure your spot.

The application will be open at all times; however, we will have specific deadlines for each of the three annual Forum meetings to allow sufficient time for review and selection. Applications that come in after the deadline will be held until the next review period.

Applicants will receive a response within 5 business days of submitting their preliminary application. This response will either advance them to the full application, or terminate the process for those who do not meet the criteria for the large employer market. The second part of the application must be completed before the application deadline to be considered for the next HIF Council meeting.
