Launching New Innovation Model and Shaping the Future of Healthcare

Intermountain Healthcare and Healthbox, a Chicago-based health care consultant, have collaborated to launch three initiatives: The Intermountain Foundry, which provides a structured framework for helping employee ideas and near-market concepts become commercial businesses; Strategic Investments, which source companies from the broader health care ecosystem and develop partnerships that include investment and potential customer relationships; and The Healthbox Salt Lake City Accelerator, which launched in September and connects the resources and expertise throughout the region to outside entrepreneurs with progressive products at various stages of development.
