3. The collaborators are transforming patient rooms and surgical suites into offices and wet labs for startup health software, pharmaceutical and medical device businesses.

4. AlphaLab Health has a portfolio of seven companies in its first class; under the agreement, participants get an investment of up to $100,000 from Innovation Works and AHN in exchange for a convertible note granting up to 2 percent equity in the company.
