Creating the Future of Personalized Care

Discovering Digital Health Solutions That Empower Patients and Providers at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Launches Innovation Center

The Center for Innovation provides an integrated platform for experts in cardiovascular sciences, imaging and engineering to collaborate in the development, translation and clinical implementation of cutting-edge technologies. The overarching aim is to drive the adoption of innovative digital health solutions and diagnostic tools to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in the community. The center's focus is on developing partnerships and affiliations with other leading high-quality health care organizations and industry participants to develop a unique ‘industry-academia’ collaboration with a focus on digital heath solutions, imaging and therapies that foster implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled care.

The center was designed by the Cardiovascular Services team in partnership with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and is available for use by all disciplines.

Mission, Vision and Values

Focus Areas

  • Advancing Clinical Knowledge at the Point of Care using AI and machine learning techniques to address unmet medical/clinical needs by reducing time to diagnosis, and improving clinical decision-making workflows to predict, prevent and cure diseases.
  • Develop Cardiac Digital Twins using imaging, modeling, holographic displays and 3D printing approaches to test and simulate the effects of treatments/therapies, surgical planning and other interventions and help improve patient care.
  • Informatics for Precision Medicine to enable deeper understanding of cardiovascular health and disease and to translate information into effective prevention and treatment strategies at an individual level.
  • mHealth technologies, wearables & sensor-based Devices to empower patients to take control of their health and make more informed decisions and make them the point of care.
  • Robotic technologies to enable and promote a high level of patient care, increase automation, drive efficiencies, and solve some of the greatest health care challenges to create safe work environment and improved satisfaction for both patients and health care workers.
  • Develop and Implement Virtual/Augmented Reality applications in cardiovascular care to assist interventionalists for pre-/intra-procedural guidance, advanced visualization of medical images, to enable clinical & medical immersion of patients.
  • Synthetic Health Data Generation to increase diversity in datasets and to increase the robustness and adaptability of AI models for complex care use cases in cardiology, that focus on the effectiveness of prevention, treatment options and patient-centered outcomes. This will also be foundational to support future applications of machine learning and AI to health, health care, and clinical trials.
  • Discovery to Commercialization Health Care Launchpad serving as an incubator across innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry partners to transform discoveries into products with commercialization potential.
