DENVER/Minneapolis -- Global healthcare design, strategy and innovation firm, Worrell, Inc., announced it will join Kaiser Permanente, Medical Group Management Association, Delta Dental, Prime Health, University of Colorado, angelMD and dozens of health-tech startups in Catalyst HTI, a new Denver healthcare innovation hub opening in June.
Catalyst HTI is the first facility of its kind in the United States, designed to bring together stakeholders from across the healthcare market to foster collaboration and accelerate innovation.
Minnespolis-based Worrell, with a new presence in Denver, will open an office in Catalyst HTI when the building opens. The firm said it is taking advantage of an opportunity to collaborate with other health-tech industry leaders in developing creative solutions that will enable healthcare companies to thrive and transform their businesses.
“Worrell is uniquely positioned to engage with the blossoming healthcare community in Colorado,” said Derek Mathers, Worrell’s director of Advanced Development.
“We are excited to join this growing list of leading health and technology companies and for the potential to share our research, design, engineering, and human factors resources with local startups and collaborate with other experts on the shared goal of improving healthcare.”
As one of the fastest growing technology markets, Denver is also becoming a favored location for many digital health and medical device startups from across the U.S.
“This means providing a space and encouragement for established organizations, startups, advocacy organizations, academics and research institutions, and strategy companies like Worrell to work side-by-side to design, develop, test and bring to market cutting-edge products and therapies that will fundamentally transform healthcare as we know it,” said Mike Biselli, Catalyst HTI president.
“With the addition of Worrell and its vast experience designing some of the most impactful medical technologies in the world, we are connecting dots that have previously been disconnected.”
The 180,000-sq.-ft. project is scheduled to be complete in June 2018.
