Commercialized innovation starts here
Fairview Ventures is an innovation lab for commercialization within our comprehensive health system. We connect our health care experts and unique discovery capability with entrepreneurs, industry partners, and investors working on new ideas in the health care space.
Startup companies, industry partners, and venture capitalists bring us their challenges of gaining integration and adoption of proven technologies and ideas. We use our health system as a “test kitchen” to evolve, validate, and commercialize the best ideas into evidence-based solutions. Then, we share the best opportunities with our network of early adopter health systems and investors.
Building on our past successes, we use our hospitals, clinics, specialty pharmacies, and health plan to give our partners valuable industry and customer insights. Our approach helps bring new ideas in health care to market faster, farther, and with a greater chance of success.
Our process: from efficient engagement to national adoption
Because Fairview Ventures operates as a dedicated business unit within the health system, we have the ability to quickly draw on expertise from across our system and engage providers, patients, and payers alike. Projects are selected and advanced at the direction of the Fairview Ventures Management Board, led by our health system’s CEO.
Once selected, we assign internal champions with a clinical or operational passion for the product, execute 45-day work plans, and leverage our system’s lean operating structure to provide fast, reliable insights ― uncovering who will pay for the product and why.
Once a product is proven, we use our national influence as a leader in specialty pharmacy to help the product gain adoption with other large health system customers.
Our ideal projects are innovations that advance our health system vision to drive a healthier future.
Our ideal partners are at the post-patent, post-FDA, and post-initial third party funding stage. For these partners, we provide time, talent, expertise, and national market relationships in exchange for equity.
