Digital Innovation Hub


For Industry

The iHub evaluates digital health solutions from startups and larger external companies for opportunities to enhance care delivery at the Brigham and across Mass General Brigham. We work with early-stage startups, venture capitalists, payers, as well as across industries including biotech and pharmaceutical. The team works to coordinate these external validation efforts with Mass General Brigham.

In collaboration with our partners at Massachusetts General Hospital, and other groups across Mass General Brigham, this process aims to:

Match hospital priorities to market solutions

Create infrastructure to scale innovation

Support internal innovators

Collaborate with external partners

Digital Health Startups
The iHub led and created a central repository for startup companies that reach out to the Mass General Brigham community through This resource encourages further communication and coordination between the various innovation sites at Mass General Brigham. 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.
