The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators


Maulik Majmudar, MD
Cardiologist and Associate Director of the Healthcare Transformation Lab at MGH, Co-Founder at Quanttus
Maulik Majmudar, MD Maulik Majmudar’s college years set him up perfectly for a career in medicine. A biochemistry and neurophysiology major at the University of Maryland College Park, Majmudar also worked as a paramedic and athletic trainer on his school’s football team. But it wasn’t until after graduation, when Majmudar began working as a clinical researcher at the Johns Hopkins Hospital ED, that he fell in love with medicine. “I was hooked. I absolutely loved the fast-paced, intellectually challenging, and dynamic environment,” he says of his realization.

Dr. Majmudar went on to receive his MD from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, and completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital. A post-doc fellowship in cardiovascular medicine at Brigham & Women’s Hospital brought Majmudar to Boston, where he eventually joined the faculty at Massachusetts General Hospital as a cardiologist and as a co-director of the hospital’s digital health innovation lab.

It was during his post-doc that Majmudar became interested healthcare technologies, particularly medical devices and smartphone enabled digital health solutions. After countless hours networking with innovators in Kendall Square, he co-founded Quanttus, a wearables startup focused on transforming personal health via continuous physiologic monitoring.

At MGH, Majmudar helped to launch the Healthcare Transformation Lab, with the mission of improving the experience and value of healthcare through collaborative innovation. “We really wanted to change the internal culture around innovation and focus our efforts on the validation and implementation of digital health solutions,” explains Majmudar of this initiative.

In Boston’s health tech community, Majmudar is well known for his work as a mentor to young entrepreneurs. He has been actively involved with MIT Hacking Medicine, and served as a mentor for classes such as Healthcare Ventures, Medical Device Design, and Engineering Health out of MIT. “The main thing I try to impress upon young and budding healthcare entrepreneurs is the singular focus on solving a ‘real pain point’ and how to go about validating assumptions around healthcare needs,” says Majmudar of his mentoring work. “I also try and convey to them that the healthcare industry is a lot more complex and fragmented as compared to other industries, and if they want to be a successful healthcare entrepreneur, they need to really understand the various healthcare stakeholders.”

Majmudar’s most recent project is the MIT Hacking Medicine Institute’s RANKED Health project, which aims critically evaluate and rank health-focused applications and connected devices.  You can read more about Dr. Majmudar and RANKED Health here.
