Following on from our inaugural white paper on The State of Digital Health in the Triangle, DHIT is embarking on a research study to benchmark consumer digital health adoption across North Carolina. This study will highlight key challenges, gaps and opportunities from a healthcare consumer and provider perspective and map out what is required to elevate the region into a leadership position for digital health.
This popular series of events will continue on a bimonthly basis and bring together entrepreneurs and ecosystem partners to connect and debate the future of digital health in the Triangle and provide guidance, mentorship and practical support to the digital health start-up community. REGISTER
Innovation Sprints offer an ideal framework for connecting diverse stakeholders from the healthcare, technology, investor, research, business and entrepreneurial communities to tackle real-world problems in healthcare and create a pipeline of innovation. UNC Center for Health Innovation has already hosted two successful Sprints backed by industry partners including AARP, Becton Dickinson, Lowe’s, and Carol Woods, and will be organizing its third series of events in the fall.
Looking ahead to 2018, DHIT will be seeking a physical working space for entrepreneurs and researchers to connect and collaborate, and stimulate the creation of a fully interoperable, provider and consumer tested, digital health applications marketplace. The Lab will include an Insights Café to host research workshops and provide a live testing environment with end users.
