About LAVA Healthcare

LAVA Healthcare is an ongoing conversation about how we might fix our healthcare system applying innovation across a wide range of dimensions -- including technology, business models, patient involvement, offshore outsourcing, and training programs.

The main goal is to foster innovation and allow our community to learn, be inspired, make valuable new business relationships and re-establish old ones. And perhaps even perhaps even influence public policy.

Who should participate? Everyone with an interest in the U.S. healthcare system such as technologists, life-sciences professionals and vendors, medical practitioners, healthcare providers, policy makers, and consultants of all types.

LAVA Healthcare is produced and moderated by Richard Koffler, CEO of Greenwings Biomedical and past president of LAVA. He is also a member of the Tech Coast Angels, an advisor to the California Emerging Technology Fund and board vice-chair of El Centro Latino for Literacy.

Each meeting features a presentations by one a healthcare innovator or investor who believes his/her ideas will have significant effects on the cost and quality of our healthcare system.

Following the three-minute introduction by the innovator, the floor opens to the audience's questions. The conversation is directed and textured by the experience and knowledge of every member of the audience who poses questions, tells stories, and proposes answers.

Meetings are governed by five simple rules:

  • Have fun, explore new and old ideas, make new friends and reconnect with old ones.
  • Nothing is off topic as long as its about healthcare.
  • No talking-head lectures:
  • Everyone is a panelist.
  • No preset course: The group leads the conversation.
  • Self-promotions and sermons instantly lose the floor at moderator's sole discretion.
