AlphaLab Health accelerates the time it takes for novel ideas to reach patients

Innovation helps produce more efficient and effective solutions every day — especially when it comes to healthcare. Major breakthroughs often stem from an environment where experimentation is not only permitted but encouraged, and grounds that allow a solution or product to thrive. But, these are not the only important factors in the innovation equation. For a great product to reach a patient, innovators need a clear pathway to spread and scale their solution. 

The road from idea to commercialization is a long and winding one, and sometimes a road many unfortunately find themselves lost on.
