The future of healthcare technology belongs to the innovators. To find them, look no further than New York Presbyterian Hospital (NYP).
NYP has just opened what the representatives call a “dedicated innovation space.” The initiative was unveiled at Blueprint Health, a New York City-based accelerator and co-working space for health tech startups.
According to a statement provided to mHealthWatch, this new space “will help foster the hospital’s collaboration with the technology and startup sector in New York City and bring new technologies into use at NYP.”
Shrewdly, the first component of NYP’s new Innovation Center will focus on developing a portfolio of technology projects with particular attention being paid to mobile apps.
NYP, which will maintain full-time workspace at Blueprint Health, will offer opportunities for startups affiliated with the accelerator to pilot and scale projects with one of New York’s largest hospital systems; participate in mentoring programs with NYP’s doctors, researchers, and health care experts; and work alongside a pool of talented technologists developing clinical and patient engagement technology.
“At NewYork-Presbyterian, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation,” said Aurelia Boyer, senior vice president and chief information officer at NYP. “To consistently deliver the best care for our patients, we need to develop forward-thinking technology and build applications that are both sustainable and scalable.”
