Why us? Why now?
It’s time to transform the way healthcare is delivered.
This requires us to think about how hospitals function, how doctors collaborate, how providers connect with patients, and how patients participate in their own care in new ways.
The Healthcare Transformation Lab’s founding mission is to improve the experience and value of healthcare through collaborative innovation. Located in Boston — a hub of leading teaching hospitals, academia, technology, and start-ups — the HTL sits within the Massachusetts General Hospital and works to connect, inspire, and support passionate people from diverse backgrounds as they collaborate on ways to improve healthcare.
