Work with the Innovation Hub
Letter from the Director
Welcome to the Brigham Digital Innovation Hub (iHub) and thank you for visiting our site! We have been a part of some incredible projects since our official launch in September 2013 – and with countless opportunities on the horizon, we’re just getting started.
We are excited to be a part of Boston’s healthcare innovation ecosystem, where so many smart, creative and energetic people are working to have a positive impact on patient care.
Our mission is to drive more seamless, efficient, patient-centered, and safe care for our patients through the development, evaluation, use and commercialization of digital health platforms and tools. We do this by:
- Identifying and evaluating internal and external technology to address the challenge at hand,
- Matching potential solutions to meet hospital needs,
- Advancing early-stage ideas from internal BWH clinicians, scientists and employees.
Within our hospital walls, our team has led internal hackathons — we call them Innovation Series — with Pulmonary, Surgery, Radiology and others to address clinical problems and pain points. It has been immensely rewarding to watch those challenges turn into solutions – products and services to improve patient care.
How is iHub different? We are disrupting from inside one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers. We have support from our leadership to help digitize our healthcare system to provide all of our stakeholders with the kind of service and value that we all believe is necessary now and in the future. And we involve everyone in the process – no matter who you are or what you do at BWH, we want to hear from you.
We want to make innovation part of your daily routine – even if it’s just thinking about what isn’t working for you and what digital health could do to improve your day-to-day work. Think about it while you’re commuting, waiting in line for coffee or walking down the Pike.
Please join our community and disrupt with us – you’ll be making a huge impact by driving change in healthcare using digital health. Sign up for our mailing list below to stay in touch with us. Better yet, stop in and say hi. We are located in the new BBF at 60 Fenwood Rd on the third floor. We can’t wait to hear your ideas.
