The Think Tank Ep. 4: Building Centers for Digital Innovation

What happens when you bring together two bright minds to tackle health care’s biggest challenges?

This isn’t your typical brainstorm among healthcare experts. This is a supercharged session between two minds that work in similar, but very disparate industries. Our guests talk about a broad challenge they face and discuss how they’ve approached the problem in their respective fields. The magic? To see how their approaches to a challenge can be applied to another industry to spark new avenues of innovation. This series is all about creating synergy between two different, but very like-minded healthcare and tech experts.

In our fourth episode of The Think Tank, our host, Kelly Stonelake sat down with experts from both tech and health care to discuss problem areas that parallel their industries. Our guests had a candid discussion about the barriers they run into and brainstormed ways they could overcome the challenges that stand in the way of innovation in their respective industries.

We were joined by our Chief Digital Officer, Aaron Martin, and Julie Sandler, who is the Managing Director of Pioneer Square Labs to discuss how they’ve approached building out technology incubators. To see how progress outside of healthcare can inspire new ways to innovate, Aaron spoke with Julie to learn about how her team at Pioneer Square Labs is approaching similar challenges that stand in their way. As it turns out, the healthcare and technology industries face a lot of the same challenges in terms of building environments for entrepreneurs and startups to thrive, especially in these unprecedented times.

Tune-in below to see how Providence’s Digital Innovation Group and Pioneer Square Labs are leveraging their expertise to create incubation hubs that build innovative digital solutions to address challenges in both health care and other verticals:
