The Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub today announced Konica Minolta Healthcare, Novo Nordisk, Philips, and Stryker as its newest strategic partners committed to improving patient care and provider experience by using health IT to solve the most pressing problems facing healthcare.
Founded in 2018, the Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub is a healthcare innovation and commercialization program bringing together all the pieces of the healthcare innovation continuum to validate and accelerate ideas into reality. Atlanta-based 11|TEN Innovation Partners will oversee the direction and operation of the Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub.
The Innovation Hub, along with partner Sharecare, uses a demand-driven innovation approach, developed with 11ITEN Innovation Partners, to identify improvement through the eyes of the end user and to develop solutions with the greatest impact on cost, quality and health outcomes in the State of Georgia and across the U.S. Initial areas of focus of the Innovation Hub includes

Realizing Innovation Event Series Kick-Off on July 10th with Konica Minolta Healthcare
To elevate the conversation and learnings around the initial problems facing healthcare and the innovation needed to solve them, the Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub will be launching the Realizing Innovation Event Series produced by 11|TEN Innovation Partners. The invite-only series will kick off on July 10 with its inaugural event at Emory’s Convocation Hall and feature partner Konica Minolta Healthcare.
The event will include Scott D. Boden, MD, vice president of business innovation for Emory Healthcare, and David Widmann, president and CEO of Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, who will share insights and projects underway to advance the future of personalized medicine. A livestream of the event will be available via Twitter @11teninnovation.
“Emory Healthcare has a rich history of innovation and now, in partnering with 11Ten Innovation Partners, has developed a unique model to bring together some of the most influential health care technology innovators in the world,” says Scott D. Boden, MD, vice president of business innovation for Emory Healthcare and chief medical/quality officer for Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital. “By adding Konica Minolta Healthcare, Novo Nordisk, Philips and Stryker, I’m excited and inspired by the power and resources of our Hub to solve some of the most pressing problems facing health care. As an example, today more than 20M women in the U.S. are at risk of developing breast cancer, but patients and providers don’t always know who they are. Through our partnership with Konica Minolta Healthcare, we’re validating the development of cancer screening tools, genetic testing modules, and closed-loop reports to aid in the early detection of cancer risk, Boden adds.”
Why It Matters
“Emory Healthcare is excited to see the expansion of the Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub through its newest strategic partners, which are some of the largest companies in the world committed to creating meaningful solutions and outcomes in health and healthcare,” says Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, president, CEO and chair of the board of Emory Healthcare. “The addition of these partners from across the healthcare industry will allow the Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub to leverage a technology and innovation ecosystem to validate ideas locally and positively affect the lives of people around the globe.”
