Henry Ford Innovations, a physical and virtual resource of the Detroit, Mich.-based Henry Ford Health System, has received a $3 million, three-year grant from the William Davidson Foundation to establish a new digital health innovation center, the William Davidson Center for Entrepreneurs in Digital Health.

The Davidson Center will bring together innovators, educators, and corporate partners from around the world to create the next generation of digital applications and platforms, as well as the leaders who will drive their implementation. It will also aim to incubate new technologies and companies focused on the intersection of healthcare and IT, create future digital healthcare leaders through a fellowship program, and foster innovative talent in the southeast Michigan community through a series of educational programs, officials say.

To foster entrepreneurship and innovation at Henry Ford Health System and across southeast Michigan through educational programs, Henry Ford Innovations will create curriculum that integrates entrepreneurship, healthcare, and digital technologies. Specific programs will be created for Henry Ford physicians and staff, medical residents, and community middle and high school students.
