CVS Health Joins Forces with MassChallenge and Rock HealthAccording to details shared Monday with mHealthWatch, CVS Health is partnering with top startup accelerator MassChallenge and digital health venture fund Rock Health.

The objective of the partnership, we’re told, is to drive faster innovation and expand areas of focus for connected health solutions.

On the heels of the opening of its Digital Innovation Lab in June, these new collaborative relationships further demonstrate CVS Health’s commitment to driving rapid and impactful innovation in digital health solutions.

“We know that some of the best digital health innovations are already being developed, so we’ve made partnering a key part of our digital efforts,” said Brian Tilzer, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer for CVS Health. “We have broad scale and resources; MassChallenge offers a competitive startup accelerator program and Rock Health has an impressive portfolio of market-leading companies. By working collaboratively with each, we can rapidly design and test new ideas – ultimately bringing solutions to our customers that will dramatically impact the way they manage their health.”

As part of its digital strategy, CVS Health is focusing on “innovation areas” including mobile, personalization, connected health and digital therapeutics – complements to the work that many of the portfolio companies are already exploring.
