I am struck by the innovation that is happening in healthcare today. Many healthcare providers are driving change throughout their organization via “Digital Health Innovation Accelerators.” These accelerators work as change agents to combine mobile apps, wearables, smart devices, and the ideas from clinicians, researchers, and technology partners to transform healthcare. The benefits include increased access to care, higher quality of services, greater affordability, and better outcomes for patients, providers, payers, and pharma.
Last week Kinvey and Google hosted a webinar featuring Carla Small, Senior Director, Innovation and Digital Health Accelerator at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) – a great example of a digital change agent. Carla oversees innovation and commercialization programs geared towards accelerating the transformative ideas of BCH’s clinicians and researchers to extend access, reach, and scale of BCH’s expertise to improve child health globally.
Carla shared with us some innovative use cases that might interest you.
