Creating and Running Innovation Centers: TechSpring at Baystate
May 1, 2019, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Christian Lagier, Managing Director and Co-Founder, TechSpring – the Baystate Health Technology Innovation Center. As regulatory and competitive pressures are dramatically increasing the pace of change in our industry, Christian speaks about the role of “innovation centers” in healthcare. At the founding of TechSpring five years ago, there were less than 20. Today, the list has grown beyond 100. Christian outlines the wide range of goals and activities undertaken by innovation centers, focusing in on the many pitfalls challenging success and how to institute a disciplined innovation program. The presentation describes lessons-learned from the activities of TechSpring and the network of like-minded health systems collaborating to solve their “Passionate Problems” through innovation collaborations with industry partners.
