CVS Health to open 'health 'innovation' lab


CVS Health has confirmed a report that it is planning to open a CVS Health Digital Innovation Lab this winter in Boston that will focus on “building customer-centric experiences in health care.”

As initially reported, the new 15,000-sq.-ft. office space will be centrally located to the medical community in Longwood and the tech community in Cambridge, and will enable CVS Health to further explore the “digital enablement of health care.”

Brian Tilzer, chief digital officer of CVS Health, told that one major goal is to connect with start-ups that are developing new healthcare-related products and services. In all, about 100 people will be based in the CVS Health Digital Innovation Lab.
