About Healthbox

Healthbox, a HIMSS Solution and healthcare advisory firm, drives innovation from the inside and out, helping organizations build internal innovation programs, assess the potential of employee-led projects, and look to the market to find solutions to implement or invest in.

Our History

Healthbox launched in 2010 as one of the world’s first healthcare-focused accelerators. In partnership with leading healthcare organizations, we set out with the goal of supporting entrepreneurial innovation to drive the industry forward. Through our work, we recognized that innovation must be embraced on a larger scale across the industry to truly empower the reinvention of healthcare. In 2014, Healthbox launched advisory services to help organizations develop their own innovative strategies and programs to support exponential improvements in the service and delivery of care. Healthbox advisement has enabled transformative results, including the commercial launches of caregiver-led projects, pioneering the first sustainable and longest-running innovation program partnership, and delivering actionable strategies that continue to produce lasting impact. Since March 2018, Healthbox has been a part of HIMSS, the worldwide leader enabling the promise of better health through information and technology. Together, we are empowering the reinvention of healthcare on a global scale.
