Our Approach

The MGH Springboard Studio activates patients, providers and staff to identify and solve for their own challenges to make healthcare more user-friendly.

Health providers know the challenges they face in patient care delivery – when activated to participate in solving their own challenges, they will design more tailored solutions

MGH Springboard Studio is designed to increase providers’ participation in healthcare innovation and improve patient and provider experience

Leveraging 7 years of experience working in resource-constrained environments to identify pain points in healthcare delivery and turn them into productive assets

A diverse network of people, both innovators and expert mentors from within MGH as well as industry, business, engineering and design

Evolution: CAMTech <> Springboard Studio

The Consortium for Affordable Medical Technologies (CAMTech) was founded in 2012 to identify clinical needs from the field, crowdsource innovative solutions, and accelerate the cycle from idea to patient impact

As the US healthcare system faces increasing demand for capacity and services with constrained resources, MGH is looking to its employees for innovative strategies, hardware and software to make healthcare more user-friendly
