CIMIT: Center for Integration of Medicine & Innovative Technology

A non-profit consortium of Boston's leading teaching hospitals
and universities, CIMIT fosters interdisciplinary collaboration among world-class experts in translational research, medicine, science and engineering, in concert with industry, foundations and government,
to rapidly improve patient care.



Transforming Healthcare
through Technology

CIMIT is a proven and successful model for initiating and accelerating translational medical research in the domain of devices, procedures, and clinical systems engineering. Our approach is based upon four assumptions:

  • With active effort, sophisticated technology from other industries can be applied in healthcare to improve the quality and safety of patient care.

  • Early-stage, high-risk, high-reward ideas have little access to funding.

  • The solution to many of the current problems in healthcare today is best achieved through active collaboration between the clinical and engineering research communities.

  • Facilitation and coaching at every stage of the innovation cycle adds value, produces better outcomes and yields better researchers.

 

Who We Are

CIMIT is a vibrant community of highly motivated collaborators who learn from each other and identify gaps in healthcare where known and emerging technologies can solve clinical problems.

This community includes scientists, engineers, and clinicians from the CIMIT consortium (non-profit institutions from Boston teaching hospitals and engineering schools), and companies, foundations, and individuals interested in accelerating the impact of technology on patient care.

What We Do

CIMIT fosters interdisciplinary collaboration among world-class experts in translational research, medicine, science and engineering, in concert with industry, foundations and government, to rapidly improve patient care. 

CIMIT seeks out and identifies entrepreneurial clinicians and engineers from among the over 40,000 doctors and 20,000 technologists who work at the CIMIT consortium institutions. Finding the women and men who have the potential to innovate through multidisciplinary collaborations is one way the CIMIT community is able to rapidly move ideas from bench to bedside.

CIMIT provides innovators with resources to explore, develop and implement novel technological solutions for today’s most urgent healthcare problems.  CIMIT is dedicated to helping develop medical technology that will help both military and civilian patients.

CIMIT Priorities

Seek solutions to unsolved clinical problems by integrating the solution-rich environment of engineering and science centers and the problem-rich environment of our clinical stakeholders.

Build a strong and vibrant CIMIT community by actively advancing our mission to improve patient care through early-stage devices, procedures and clinical systems.

Contribute to improved patient care through innovative leadership practices that reward performance through teamwork.

Achieve financial sustainability by diversifying funding sources, and employing financial and operational best practices.

Support CIMIT investigators by creating and sustaining an efficient operational and management system to advance the CIMIT mission.
