The SoPE Raleigh Durham North Carolina Chapter is dedicated to advancing healthcare innovation. By linking clinicians, entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, corporate executives and policymakers, we help match business and scientific creativity with clinical understanding of health needs. We recognize that the driver for product innovation in developing and implementing best healthcare practices requires the informed guidance and support of physicians exposed daily to clinical problems in need of creative solutions. Via workshops, trainings, and collaborative forums of all sorts, we promote the knowledge-base and partnerships that make for a vibrant and relevant healthcare innovation ecosystem. We aim to facilitate fresh approaches to NC’s unique healthcare challenges, as well as empower the rich diversity of health care sectors in this state to be translated into goal-directed projects, products and services. Through a highly collaborative approach, we help stakeholders conceive and adopt novel strategies for meeting national and global health needs by leveraging NC’s world-renown health innovation sector.

We invite professionals interested in healthcare innovation from a wide range of fields to participate in NC SoPE events, contribute their expertise to healthcare innovation and join us as members. Clinicians, healthcare administrators, research scientists and engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, lawyers, public health workers, insurers, government officials, patient advocates, and business leaders are all important players in our healthcare innovation ecosystem. By serving a membership that crosses these fields we aim to foster the creative potential that can be realized through improved and expanded collaboration and coordination across sectors and professions. In particular, we strive to improve knowledge-sharing and collaboration among entrepreneurs across the diagnostic, therapeutic, biotech, health informatics, medical device, healthcare services and wellness sectors.
