iHub Early Stage Innovation Matchmaking

Leading the digital transformation in healthcare, iHub collaborates with a spectrum of companies from early-stage to worldwide enterprises. The collaborative effort allows the Brigham to understand the evolving digital health landscape and identify opportunities for meaningful engagement. As one of the emerging leaders in digital health, we strive to be both the provider and collaborator of choice through increased usage, adoption, and implementation.


Collaboration and Matchmaking Success Stories:


Engagement with Digital Health Startups

iHub frequently engages with early stage and maturing digital health startups. The intake process is one mechanism that allows us to evaluate and assess fit within our institution. Typically, once companies have completed the form, if there is alignment with strategic initiatives and priorities at Brigham Health, an introductory meeting will be held to better understand opportunities and potentials for adoption.
