HHS Extends Deadline for DSIIS Recommendations
Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that it is extending the application deadline for the Deputy Secretary’s Innovation and Investment Summit (DSIIS) to October 12, 2018. As announced on September 19, 2018, the DSIIS will be a yearlong collaboration between healthcare innovation and investment professionals and HHS personnel who will meet quarterly to engage in high-level dialogues about emerging opportunities and the government’s role in facilitating more investment and accelerated innovation in the healthcare sector. Due to strong interest and requests for additional information regarding DSIIS, the Department is extending the application deadline as well as posting a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) for further guidance.
Recommendations of DSIIS participants must include a resume/CV and a brief description of why the individual recommended would be a good candidate to help deliver on and advance the goals of the DSIIS. Recommendations should be submitted to DeputySecretary@HHS.gov by October 12, 2018, with the subject line “DSIIS Recommendation.” Individuals wishing to update an existing recommendation can do so by emailing the same address using the subject line “Additional Information for [NAME] Recommendation.”
