The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators


Brian Powers
MD/MBA Candidate at Harvard University
Brian PowersFor Brian Powers, science is in his blood. The son of two scientists, Powers has always been drawn to academic research, as his impressive CV of publications suggests.

A history major at Bowdoin College, Powers chose a career in medicine because it perfectly combined his interest in science with his love for the service industries. “Medicine is an amazing way to blend both of these interests,” he explains of his career choice. “I can interact with, and serve, patients on a daily basis. But to do so effectively I must also be well versed in the science of clinical medicine and care delivery.”

In addition to studying for his, MD, Powers is pursuing an MBA and is a deputy editor of Health Care: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation where he is involved in content strategy, building partnerships with peer organizations, manuscript editing, and operational activities. “I have been focusing on a Commonwealth Fund sponsored project on Physician Incentives for Value” says Powers of his recent work. “We explore innovative approaches to designing physician incentives, with a focus on behavioral economics.”

Powers is set to graduate in 2017 with five extra letters after his name and the tools he needs to help build a better, more efficient healthcare delivery system.
