NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has opened dedicated innovation space at Blueprint Health, a New York City-based accelerator and co-working space for health technology startups.

Hospital executives say this new space will help foster the hospital's collaboration with the technology and startup sector in New York City and bring new technologies into use at NYP. The first component of NYP's nascent Innovation Center, the site at Blueprint Health, will focus on developing a new portfolio of technology projects, including building on applications from the hospital's recent hackathon, expanding existing initiatives such as award-winning patient bedside tablets, and developing new solutions in conjunction with Blueprint Health's members. 

NYP, which will maintain full-time workspace at Blueprint Health, will offer opportunities for startups affiliated with the accelerator to pilot and scale projects with one of New York's largest hospital systems, participate in mentoring programs with NYP's doctors, researchers and healthcare experts, and work alongside a pool of technologists developing clinical and patient engagement technology.

The NYP Innovation Center will advance a variety of technology projects, including the series of InnovateNYP initiatives. In March, NYP hosted InnovateNYP, the first New York City hospital hackathon, to spur excitement and creativity in the local tech community. Additionally, NYP hosted the first InnovateNYP Listening Session at Blueprint Health to gather feedback from its members and discuss healthcare innovation with the tech sector.  

Building on the success of the hackathon and listening session, NYP recently launched a website (innovatenyp.org) to make it easier for entrepreneurs to share their ideas with the hospital. Later this year, NYP will announce a challenge geared towards its medical residents and nurses to help generate ideas to improve the workplace.
