Healthcare Collaboration unlocks major innovation
America’s national healthcare apparatus, with its many gatekeepers, rules, regulations, and interested parties, is one of the most debilitatingly confusing systems in the world. However, even though it sounds like the grime of bureaucracy may slow the gears of progress, healthcare is actually ripe for disruption.
Healthcare’s myriad stakeholders may be in competition for greater visibility, but what makes it most viable for disruption is the fact that everyone is aligned on the same goal: patient outcomes. It is only through leveraging this shared value to promote collaboration can healthcare innovation be truly catalyzed, and that’s what PULSE@MassChallenge is here for.
We believe that when entrepreneurs and the ecosystem come together to solve problems we will accelerate innovation and transform healthcare.
In partnership with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, MeHI, MACP, and the region’s leading institutions, corporations, payors and healthcare experts, PULSE@MassChallenge brings a startup-friendly approach to accelerating the development of new digital health innovations.
How will PULSE@ Help startups succeed?

• Key advisor introductions

On top of this, PULSE@ provides startups with access to 8,000 sq ft of free office space in Hatch Fenway, a growing innovation center in Boston and a stone’s throw from the Longwood Medical Area.
