Digital Health Hackathon


COVID-19 has changed our world for the long-haul and systems, payers, clinics, and other organizations must move faster to be prepared for what the Future of Healthcare will be.

The Digital Health Lab is a collaborative initiative designed to surface new opportunities, more rapidly define partnerships and identify new solutions that create more accessible and lower cost care while improving patient outcomes.

The Lab offers the opportunity for companies to rapidly test products, work on proprietary projects or to create customized versions of the Lab to accelerate Digital Health initiatives focused on specific challenges.

Some options include:

  • Strategic vetting and validating of partnerships, technologies and new market opportunities
  • Incubating new business models and ideas
  • De-risking R&D and exploring and experimenting with cutting-edge technologies by executing in a neutral “external lab” setting
  • Developing POCs and MVPs and running pilots faster
  • Testing products and services in a rapid experimentation framework
  • Keeping an eye on the horizon of rapidly changing technologies in healthcare

Health Tech Innovation at Speed and Scale

The Lab is focused on identifying real-world applications for health tech solutions, exploring and experimenting with novel technologies in healthcare, de-risking R&D for industry partners, and providing opportunities for collaboration with startups, universities, and other companies. Current challenges and projects include:

  • Tracking COVID-19 through remote monitoring and developing predictive and prescriptive models for addressing resource scarcity and demand
  • RPM in a simulated AI predictive analytics platform to rapidly test and iterate to understand physician acceptability of data and insights for monitoring chronic conditions
  • 3D scanning of home environments to understand the impact of environment on health and behavior
  • Injury risk reduction and performance optimization
  • AR and location-based services to enhance customer / patient experience
  • Opportunities to improve access to mental health resources using VR
  • Exploring the potential for wearables in non-medicinal pain relief and chronic condition monitoring
