Boston Children's Hospital's Innovation & Digital Health Accelerator

Boston Children's Hospital launched the Innovation & Digital Health Accelerator to broaden its digital health offerings and encompass remote care services, clinical decision support tools and interoperable technologies. The accelerator offers consulting, technology evaluation, EMR integration advising, project management, startup strategy and informatics related to population health and social media.

The accelerator's portfolio of solutions includes HealthMap, a surveillance tool that maps emerging public health threats in real time, and KidsMD, a voice-enabled tool for Amazon's Alexa platform. Through these innovations and active partnerships with industry leaders, Boston Children's aims to expand access to its pediatric services and expertise.

The hospital also has partnerships with companies such as Cerner, Boston-based Harvard Medical School's biomedical informatics department, Uber and TigerText to drive innovation.
