In collaboration with the Center for Primary Care, the Harvard Innovation and Commercialization course will broaden its scope to include aspects of digital health and diagnostics that are revolutionizing patient-centered primary care. The curriculum will be expanded to include subject matter experts and entrepreneurs from the digital health sector. In addition, faculty and staff from the Center will be available for mentorship and provide support for those interested in this area.
The Center’s mission is to transform primary care, and they envision high value health systems built on a foundation of strong primary care. To achieve these objectives, they are strengthening health systems through the transformation of primary care delivery. By creating new approaches to care and training physicians and health care leaders, they aim to discover new opportunities for delivering outstanding primary care.
The Center’s InciteHealth team focuses on designing and delivering innovation and entrepreneurship programming for the medical school community. The Center has supported 15 teams and provided over $450,000 in direct funding through its innovation work including MAVEN project, PRIMR, Sherbit, and Salubris Analytics. They have also supported healthcare related startups including: buoy, Rise, RubiconMD, CareMessage and Salubris Analytics.
Creating a supportive culture of innovation and entrepreneurship throughout the HMS ecosystem is central to what we do. By partnering with the HIC, the Center can continue to identify and support innovators that have an interest in care delivery, technology enabled services, and diagnostics related to transforming primary care.
