Innovation Academic Incubator

Leveraging our strategic partnerships with universities and others, we've developed the Innovation Academic Incubator - an effort to combine the talents of OSF HealthCare clinicians, faculty and researchers to develop novel health care solutions.

The Innovation Academic Incubator (IAI) is a network of clinicians across the Ministry as well as faculty and students from university partners that helps execute innovative health care solutions, convert them into companies or license them to outside companies.
