Provider Highlight:
New Cluster Model to Enable Digital Innovation

Date: October 18th, 2018
Time:
12:40 - 1:30 p.m.

The value of a large institution, such as an academic medical center, is that they are filled with world leading experts, clinicians, cutting edge researchers, and overall innovators, all under one roof. These innovators span across every specialty and sub specialty, treating a diverse set of patients. However, his can make innovating within these large institutions and structure complicated. This can become even more complicated when innovative ideas are focused around areas of technology, that cover many different disciplines, departments and types of care environments.

The Brigham Digital Innovation Hub has begun to group together the internal innovation community here at the Brigham in similar project areas, such as the opioid epidemic and voice technology, to work together and collaborate in order to move their ideas forward.

Join members of the Brigham Digital Innovation Hub, and leader from the voice technology industry, Nathan Treloar, as they discuss their new cluster models to enable digital innovation. Register today.
