Request Membership Info

Health IoT describes health-related technologies where just about anything can be connected, communicated, and used remotely in an intelligent way.

Individuals and companies interested in developing products and businesses around the Health Internet of Things (IoT) have a new option.

Connectivity
This is an incredible opportunity to globally advance and connect our healthcare assets in Indiana. Northeast Indiana is well-positioned to house the Connected Health IoT Lab, given its large health-related market clusters of medical devices, insurance, and healthcare supply chain companies.

Education/Training
Our programming and infrastructure will provide entrepreneurs, business builders, larger corporations, and interested groups with innovative IoT ideas with resources, tools and networks. These will be used to develop those ideas into innovative products, new or expanded businesses, and new markets.

Lab/Network
The lab/network actively engages healthcare companies, IoT supplier companies, universities, and other innovative support organizations. Collaboration with IoT labs fosters piloting and experimenting with innovative ideas, connecting the dots to improve patient experience, and dealing with the problems and pains experienced in today's healthcare industry. The NIIC will further provide ongoing intensive business coaching and facilitate the sourcing of connections to capital to promising projects from the lab.

Funded by the Economic Development Corporation. The NIIC is one of 40 organizations from 28 states and two territories to be awarded funding to create and expand cluster-focused commercialization program under the Economic Development Administration (EDA) 2018 Regional Innovation Strategies (RIS) Program. This includes a three-year, $750,000 grant to The NIIC to form the Indiana Connected Health IoT Lab/Network.
