Hackensack Meridian Health and the New Jersey Innovation Institute, a wholly owned not-for-profit subsidiary of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, are proud to announce the opening of the Agile Strategies Lab, the first incubator of its kind for health care advances in New Jersey. The lab, located on the NJIT campus in Newark, is designed to help create and launch the next wave of problem-solving in health care through better devices, improved technology and more efficient services to provide a higher quality of care, lower costs, and an enhanced patient experience. The concept is similar to the popular ABC reality show Shark Tank – 10 companies have already pitched ideas to a panel of experts. Innovations include a device to lower risk in common surgeries and a wearable monitor to better track patients’ vitals. Four finalists will be selected to start the process to bring the products or innovations to market.
