New Healthcare Innovation Economy
Coalition Lead Applicant: Greater Phoenix Economic Council
Region (applicant-defined): Greater Phoenix, Arizona
Cluster Sector(s): Business and Technical Services; Education
Led by the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, this coalition proposes to capitalize on the rapid shift in healthcare from disjointed care across traditional hospitals and clinical settings, toward seamless continuity of care in home and community settings. If provided an implementation grant, the "Driving the New Healthcare Innovation Economy" project proposes to make risk capital more readily available to Arizona’s early-stage bioscience firms, further develop research infrastructure at state universities, attract industry and research anchors, and develop ties to economic partners in neighboring markets.
