Inventing Healthcare

Let’s Be Real

Healthcare is broken. In the US, we spend more money on healthcare than any other nation and our results are far from stellar. This is not a political stance and it’s not about blaming. It’s about naming reality and, with both passion and intelligence, doing something about it.

Fixing it is going to take all of us. A team effort. We cannot stuff new solutions into existing structures & processes. Real change is only possible if all stakeholders are involved and commit to wholesale change — change in organization, job descriptions, goal definitions, everything. This is invention.

Enter TechSpring.

With our client partners, TechSpring accelerates innovation
in healthcare informatics and technology,
resulting in impactful and positive change for
healthcare systems, providers, and patients.

TechSpring is the only option in the country where...

... healthcare innovators and product developers — ready to pilot their ideas and products — have the potential to access to ALL the assets of Baystate Health, a representative health system. PLUS you also get ... us.

TechSpring has been purpose-built by Baystate Health to get innovation done.

Our day job is not delivering healthcare. Baystate Health has more than 12,000 employees with that focus. At TechSpring, we establish and facilitate the collaboration between healthcare professionals and proven healthcare innovators.

“The triple benefit of working with TechSpring is the advancing of product development priorities, engaging with healthcare professionals that get excited about a solution, and getting to tell the story to the world.
