Ep. 4: Where and How Can Doctors Prescribe Apps?
In 2012 Cleveland Clinic experts designed the Medical Innovation Playbook — a detailed report on the diverse and rapidly evolving technology commercialisation programs of the USA’s top medical centres. It includes an overview of nearly 10,000 invention disclosures, 6,400 patent applications and almost 2,000 issued patents.
Many saw the opportunity in this technological revolution, by establishing incubators and accelerators inside institutions, to give their doctors a support environment for innovation. Not only did they get new reliable solutions, they also generated a new revenue stream.
In this episode, Ashish Atreja, Director of Sinai AppLab — a sort of incubator/accelerator inside Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York explains:
- How Sinai AppLabb is designing and testing apps?
- What sort of clinical trials had they done so far?
- Is there enough collaboration between top medical institutions in the U.S.?
- Can start-ups with digital health solutions developed outside top medical institutions collaborate with these institutions?
