This prestigious center, the first of its kind at a Harvard teaching hospital, will extend the medical center’s international reach through formalized affiliations and technological advances that will be used to transform the medical landscape, making care more efficient, accessible, and integrated. HTEC experts will rapidly evaluate and develop emerging high-risk, high-reward technologies to bring innovation to BIDMC and disseminate advances to HTEC partners around the country and across the globe.
