Boston Children’s is one of the foremost hospitals in the US – and has served as a trailblazer for the field of paediatrics. Upon the realisation that many great innovations came from their own staff, they have developed a set-up which allows those in the hospital community to pitch ideas, receive coaching, and potentially spin out entire new companies – in the belief this will result in better care for patients.
The clinicians within Boston Children’s are uniquely capable of seeing where gaps in medical practice are, and how they can be fixed. This means that everything should be in place to bring these ideas to reality – and ideally, as fast as possible.
With the growth of digital technologies in healthcare, this tempo has radically increased. Boston Children’s recognised this, and put together a systematic approach to bring innovations to life – and also to market. This includes a formula to connect physicians to technology, strategy and informatics experts, as well as to business leaders and partners. This means that good ideas can be quickly accelerated forwards – but those which will never have a big enough market can pivot or refocus.
