Digital health is alive and kicking—and funded—in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts! We know this because Mike Dunkley, Continuum SVP, recently sat down with Nick Dougherty, Program Director of PULSE@MassChallenge, for an episode of The Resonance Test. PULSE is a vibrant new program that, Dougherty says, “actively creates the future of healthcare.” Tune in and hear how PULSE plays matchmaker between aspiring startups and established sponsor organizations, and turns startup ideas and energy into scalable solutions. “The real core of this program is working,” says Dougherty. “These startups and partners are working together in ways that they haven’t been able to do in the past.” How is PULSE different? Well, for one, they brig a whole lot of scientific attitude to the proceedings. “We want to make sure that we’re not just talking about the great work that we’re doing—that we’re measuring it," says Dougtherty. “And if we’re off track, we have the data that shows us that we’re off track so that we can course-correct.” And, in a very cool move, PULSE embeds MBA students with their startups, and it’s their task to produce a case study for each new business.
