Looking Back and Moving Forward: 2014’s Health Care Disappointments Drive 2015’s Trends

Trends to watch in 2015: “Boston is at the forefront of the medtech movement, especially in exploring how to combine digital health with value-based care. Of course, one large barrier to this integration has been bringing the culture of academic medical centers (AMCs) together with the start-up community. In previous years, we’ve seen the development of a number of health incubators external to medical centers with a few AMCs playing the role of early adopters. In late 2014, we began to see local Bostonian efforts ramp-up like Incite Health and Co.Create – real partnerships for pilots and incubation between AMCs and start-ups. I think 2015 will be a year when such efforts will continue to expand at AMCs and will help build a better, more integrated ecosystem for our transition to value-based care.”
