Innovation

With a robust healthcare sector and a fast growing technology and innovation industry, Massachusetts offers an ideal climate for eHealth innovation. MeHI's innovation initiatives focus on providing assistance through healthcare market know how in order to help identify points of entry, make investor connections, and open opportunities for innovation among the eHealth community.

Specifically, the Digital Health Innovation Initiative aims to cross-fertilize and deepen domain expertise among innovative product organizations and healthcare organizations, to bring a common understanding and clarity to the healthcare market environment.

A key goal is to identify, promote and accelerate dissemination of emerging digital healthcare technologies, including, evidence-based clinical decision support, image exchange tools for advanced diagnostic imaging services, cloud-based Big Data technologies, and innovative care management approaches. For this purpose, we perform match-making activities to connect market needs with emerging technologies and create opportunities for early stage products to prove viability in live environments.

All of MeHI's initiatives promote innovation as a core goal, and MeHI's Digital Health Cluster Initiative in collaboration with the Innovation Institute work to provide opportunities for Massachusetts healthcare related firms and organizations.
