UCHealth to create innovation center at new Denver building

June 14, 2018

UCHealth’s innovation team will soon move into the Catalyst Health-Tech Innovation building in Denver’s River North District (RiNo) as one of the facility’s largest tenants. UCHealth will develop an innovation hub that will leverage minds both inside and outside the health system—to help transform healthcare delivery of the future.

Catalyst HTI is a novel real estate development that brings together stakeholders from across health, wellness, and healthcare industries to collaborate and incubate innovative ideas. The site will bring together more than 70 organizations that will all work together in a space focused on collaboration to foster new ideas. UCHealth IT experts and members of the organization’s creative team also will have space within the facility.

UCHealth plans to build an innovation lab at the location with a “hospital room of the future,” a location to test equipment and devices and actually create a new type of clinical setting. It might not even be in a hospital—it could be in your own home, said Steve Hess, UCHealth chief information officer. By experimenting with virtual health options, wearable monitors, and the electronic health record, healthcare organizations might be able to transform a patient’s bedroom into a space where medicine is delivered in a novel way that is both convenient and comforting to the patient while also lowering costs.

UCHealth is already partnering with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and more than a dozen companies, and together, products have been developed to improve the efficiency of operating rooms, boost the accuracy of medication prescribing, inject the latest research and protocols into the electronic medical record, and to utilize wearable devices to constantly monitor the vital signs of patients. Many more innovations are currently in development.
