Emerging technologies and healthcare delivery science are enabling a patient- and value- centered redesign of healthcare.
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 — HTL sits within the Massachusetts General Hospital and collaborates with passionate people from diverse backgrounds to transform how healthcare is delivered.
Building on the Innovation Culture at MGH
MGH has a storied history of fostering medical breakthroughs to the benefit of society’s health. At the lab, we focus on capturing this innovative spirit to re-think the best experience and setting for the provision of 21st century healthcare. With the seismic move towards the home as the center of care, we continuously evaluate the current structure and process of care delivery and the opportunity for emerging technologies to impact how doctors diagnose, treat, and connect with patients–as well as how patients participate in their own care.
Advances in digital health technology, combined with a focus on human-centered design, are creating the unique opportunity to re-imagine patient care — making it more continuous, coordinated and convenient. As promising ideas emerge in remote patient monitoring, telemedicine, and patient engagement, we support their development and validation and then help champion their implementation to ensure a sustainable impact on patient care.
