Abbott has teamed up with NACHC’s Center for Community Health Innovation and NACHC’s own experts from Informatics, Population Health and Training and Technical Assistance to launch a new Innovation Incubator initiative. This initiative will help guide health centers in using a human-centered design approach to improve health equity by addressing their own digital and health literacy challenges. With initial seed funding for selected health centers, access to leading experts, and training on human-centered design principles, participants will design and test their solutions – all with the broader goal of sharing what works with health centers nationwide.

A cohort of 8 health centers will be chosen to incubate their co-designed solutions and work with experts in the digital and health literacy, technology, UX, broadband, business development/sustainability and other fields during a 7-month period. All cohort members will be awarded $40,000 in funding and as the program concludes in fall 2023, they will have a chance to win one of two additional $25,000 awards at a live Pitch Session. The deadline to apply is March 27! Learn more about the Innovation Incubator initiative.
