In addition to all the smart, insightful speakers talking about innovation in healthcare and all the entrepreneurs in the startup showcase at CONVERGE last week, there were more than 50 other startups at the event. Here are a few of the most promising ideas and growing companies we heard about in Philadelphia.

No more facility fees for emergency care

One doctor I spoke with is working on a free-standing emergency room. The idea is to provide urgent care that is more complex than what a minute clinic can provide. A free-standing center would not have a facility fee, which means cheaper care for patients. The entrepreneur was not ready to share many details, but I am looking forward to writing about the company soon.
