Research Connection Live Lunch: Creating an Infrastructure for Digital Health Innovation

The Brigham Digital Innovation Hub drives cutting-edge innovation within our institution and with external collaborators. The iHub-led Digital Health Innovation Guide (DHIG) creates a fast lane for innovators and disruptors to meet the necessary guidelines to accelerate the implementation and evaluation of digital health pilots. The DHIG toolkit enables innovators to predict and navigate the complex institutional processes which can often hinder pilots at an academic medical center.

Join Josie Elias, MBA, MPH of the Brigham Digital Innovation Hub and the Brigham Research Institute to learn more about the DHIG, and other ways iHub and the Brigham are aiming to be the collaborator of choice.

Please note: This event is for for those within the Brigham community only.
