The Pacific Northwest health care industry has the potential to create hundreds of new companies with high-paying jobs, adding substantial value to the region.
We are partnering with stakeholders to build the 2.0 health care economy right here in Seattle. Working with the Washington State Department of Commerce, the Washington Biotechnology & Biomedical Association and organizations like the Washington Technology Industry Association, the Cambia Grove will publish an inaugural study focused on the region's health care industry and its economic impact. This study will help focus our strategies and work together to set a quantitative baseline and illuminate the health care industry’s opportunities for growth.
The report will be the first of many designed to track, measure and document our collective progress toward being the first region in the U.S. to achieve the Triple Aim (better care, better health, lower costs) in health care.
In addition, the Cambia Grove will align with the study to achieve our Community Pledge of transforming our health care system to be economically sustainable and centered on individuals and their families. Stay tuned for the first edition in fall 2015.
