“If health care systems are looking to figure out what internal ideas that their employees might have, what can we create a demonstration project and help the health systems develop innovation, as well as and commercialize those products outside the health system and beyond those four walls of the health system,” he continued.
“So we imagine being able to set up pods in other health systems around the state or creating new ones. That is something that we’re working on actively. We’re getting close to contracting with some health systems.”
To date, NJII, through its Innovation as a Service program and partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health, has visited with over 90 startup companies as a result of the partnership.
