Lancaster General Health co-develops Smart Health Innovation Lab

Lancaster (Pa.) General Health joined forces with Aspire Ventures, Capital BlueCross and Clio Health to launch the Smart Health Innovation Lab, a health technology accelerator.

The lab offers a 12-week certification program, during which time health technology, payer and clinical experts will work with resident startups to help them bring their products to market.

The lab will also provide startups with a variety of simulated care environments, including a hospital room, physical therapy gym and clinician's office, to test and demonstrate the efficacy of their products.

For its 2018 inaugural class, the lab assessed 30 finalists, selecting two startups: early-stage medical device company Emovi and mental health technology company NeuroFlow.
