About Healthbox

Healthbox, a HIMSS Solution, enables healthcare organizations – providers, payers, market suppliers, and startups – to develop, adopt and invest in the technologies that will drive innovation and digital transformation. Healthbox helps organizations drive innovation from the inside and out.


Our History

Healthbox launched in 2010 as one of the world’s first healthcare-focused accelerators. In partnership with leading healthcare organizations, we set out with the goal of supporting entrepreneurial innovation to drive the industry forward. Through our work, we recognized that innovation must be embraced on a larger scale across the industry to truly empower the reinvention of healthcare. In 2014, Healthbox launched advisory services to help organizations develop their own innovative strategies and programs to support exponential improvements in the service and delivery of care.

Healthbox advisement has enabled transformative results, including the commercial launches of caregiver-led projects, pioneering the first sustainable and longest-running innovation program partnership, and delivering actionable strategies that continue to produce lasting impact. Since March 2018, Healthbox has been a part of HIMSS, the worldwide leader enabling the promise of better health through information and technology.

In 2021, Healthbox launched Idealy, an innovation intake software solution – which has been in use internally on engagements for 5+ years. As a part of the HIMSS family, we have significantly expanded our network, leveraged new tools, and gained access to industry-leading subject matter experts. Today, we remain committed to innovation and digital transformation and are envisioning tomorrow while planning for today.
