Fostering digital health innovation within Boston Children’s is core to IDHA’s mission. We encourage everyone to participate in driving innovation at BCH, and offer opportunities to collaborate at different levels of engagement interest and idea maturity.

For those interested in partnering with IDHA on digital innovation, regardless of whether you have an idea in mind or not, we offer Advisory Services through which innovators receive ideation, business, and/or technical strategy support. Advisory Services can be requested at any time through the IDHA Advisory Services Request Form.

IDHA also develops novel solutions when opportunities for innovation arise and align with the broader digital health market. Those interested in sharing pain points or challenges ripe for innovation without actively engaging in the innovation process can contribute to IDHA’s pain point generation efforts via the Pain Point Generator. The Pain Point Generator, which collects innovation opportunities for potential incubation by the IDHA team, is open for pain point submissions during bi-annual calls for engagement.
