Collaboration in New York City will foster healthcare innovation and technology projects

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP) has opened dedicated innovation space at Blueprint Health, a New York City-based accelerator and co-working space for health tech startups. The hospital says the new space will help foster the hospital’s collaboration with the technology and startup sector in New York City and bring new technologies into use at the organization. The first component of NYP's nascent Innovation Center, the site at Blueprint Health, will focus on developing a new portfolio of technology projects, including building on applications from the hospital’s recent “hackathon,” expanding existing initiatives such as patient bedside tablets, and developing new solutions with Blueprint Health’s members.

NYP says the workspace at Blueprint Health, will offer opportunities for startups affiliated with the accelerator to pilot and scale projects and work alongside a pool of technologists developing clinical and patient engagement technology.

The NYP Innovation Center will advance a variety of technology projects, including the series of InnovateNYP initiatives. In March, NYP hosted InnovateNYP, which it maintains is the first New York City hospital hackathon. NYP recently launched a website for entrepreneurs to share their ideas with the hospital. Later this year, Aurelia Boyer, R.N., senior vice president and CIO of NYP, will announce a challenge geared towards NYP medical residents and nurses to help generate ideas to improve the workplace.
