New England Healthcare Network (NEHEN)

NEHEN is a professional platform that assists many different collaborators in the life science, biotech, device, pharma industries; consumables payers and providers.  This unique program not only brings together companies and investors but all people that are involved from reporters, scientists, academia, trade organizations, international partners et. al. Our program introduces our participants with relevant timely introductions whether through the website, email or the personal touch at the NYC Medtech Forum.

New England Healthcare Executive Network is a member-focused community of senior healthcare executives representing a broad range of market verticals including medical devices, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, health IT and healthcare providers.  The members are professionals committed to building relationships, sharing knowledge, and gaining insight into the key issues and opportunities affecting the industry.  Focused on individual members vs. the corporations, the organization is dedicated to professional development within the industry.

Since its inception in early 2010, as a referral only network over 400 people have become NEHEN members with over 1,500 contacts in the database.

Programs and activities are designed to enhance the experience of individuals through:

  • Expanded industry relationships

NEHEN offers regularly scheduled educational and social events averaging 80-90 participants that encourage a dynamic flow of information among all members.  Educational programs deliver diverse and interactive forums on current topics impacting the individual and the industry as a whole.  Social events provide casual and engaging opportunities for connecting, networking, and collegial discussions of topics affecting healthcare.
