Hundreds of regional and national digital health thought leaders, healthcare executives, physicians, entrepreneurs, investors, technologists and academics are exploring digital health-related topics during the Summit.

The annual event was created to pair investors and strategic partners with Colorado’s digital health entrepreneurs, Prime Health said.

Since its inception in 2012, Prime Health has grown to nearly 1,000 collaborators with grassroots chapters in Denver, Boulder, Centennial, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins.

Nationally recognized digital health accelerators Rock Health and StartUp Health have identified Colorado as the sixth-largest digital health community in the U.S. based on institutional investment.

Prime Health said it is focused on enhancing the state’s leadership position based on its per-capita metrics and market segment leadership.

“Colorado has more than 120 digital health companies and the number is growing,” said Jeffrey Nathanson, Prime Health CEO. “We believe this Digital Health Summit serves as a springboard to tell our story and announce our mission to become the No. 1 digital health ecosystem in the U.S.”

Today’s Summit will include presentations and panel discussions with digital health experts that include John Mattison, Kaiser Permanente; Chere Parton, WellMatch; Roger Holstein, Healthgrades; Brian Ancell, WellTok; and Jim Greiner, iTriage.
