Healthcare Transformation Lab in collaboration with the MGH Corrigan Minehan Heart Center
Boston, MA - As one of the top academic medical centers in the world, the MGH is recognized for its rich history of innovation. On April 22, the hospital extended that culture with the launch of the Healthcare Transformation Lab (HTL) in collaboration with the MGH Corrigan Minehan Heart Center in the MGH Institute for Heart, Vascular and Stroke Care.
Founded and led by Eric Isselbacher, MD, associate director of the Heart Center and co-director of the Thoracic Aortic Center, the HTL will focus on improving the experience and value of health care through collaborative innovation. “Before, there wasn’t an outlet for doctors to evolve their ideas – now they have a home base and the resources to see their ideas come to life,” Isselbacher says.
