OSF Innovation Partners
OSF HealthCare is a founding partner of the Chicago-based incubator, MATTER. MATTER is a not-for-profit community of health care entrepreneurs and industry leaders working together in a shared space to individually and collectively fuel the future of health care innovation. MATTER works to develop innovative products and services to transform health care.
Health care industry experts from OSF mentor entrepreneurs at MATTER to aid in the development of new products and services. One of our goals is to implement the most appropriate innovations throughout the OSF HealthCare Ministry.
OSF Innovation works with AVIA to find the latest technology solutions for health care provider needs. Based in Chicago, AVIA applies a rigorous vetting process to discover the best emerging health care technology products and services. OSF and other providers give input on the most necessary and viable solutions to aid the transformation of health care.
AVIA’s mission is to help health care providers build competitive advantage by effectively leveraging emerging technology-enabled innovations.
OSF Ventures is a corporate sponsor of Plug and Play’s program for Health and Wellness to help identify progressive technologies that could benefit the health care industry. OSF is the second health care system to partner with this program and will join a handful of other sponsors to define health care needs that could be filled through innovative technology. Plug and Play then invites startups from all over the world to apply for its 12-week industry specific innovation platform that includes potential investment, working space and mentorship to further develop their companies.
