RESI NYC is just over 2 weeks away, on Monday, November 5th, and we are happy to announce the thirty finalists for the RESI Innovation Challenge. The Innovation Challenge finalists span from therapeutics to medical devices to diagnostics and digital health. The Innovation Challenge is designed to allow the finalists a chance to showcase their technology to the investors and strategic partners attending RESI, beyond the one-on-one Partnering Forum - make sure to stop by and look at their innovative technologies! Each attendee will receive "RESI Cash" to "invest" in their favorite company (or companies). The top three companies will receive prizes at the end of the day, so make sure to go through the exhibit hall and check out all of the IC Finalist posters...

These are the types of questions that will be addressed on the Health System Partners panel at RESI NYC, on Monday, November 5th, 2018.

Moderated by Brent Stackhouse, Vice President, Mount Sinai Ventures, Inc, our panelists for this session are:
