We want your thoughts on how Pennsylvania should prioritize the growth of its healthcare industry.

It’s part of our mission with Grow PA, a reported series on economic development across the state, produced in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia.

For the past five months, we’ve been reporting on best practices and trends in three of the Commonwealth’s strongest industries: Infrastructure, healthcare and post-secondary education.

If you’ve been following along, you might have taken our infrastructure survey earlier this month. Now we’re asking for your help prioritizing Pa.’s healthcare innovations.

Should we be incentivizing innovations that lower the cost of healthcare while improving outcomes and access?

Should a study be commissioned to target areas that can be improved?

How about an investment fund for high-growth startups working within health and medicine?

You tell us.

Take the survey

The results will be shared at our Grow PA event in Harrisburg next month. But in the meantime, sign up for our weekly curated newsletter here and keep an eye out for the final survey in the coming weeks.
