Brigham Care Redesign Incubator and Startup Program (BCRISP)

BCRISP aims to apply a venture capital framework to clinical care redesign to:

  • Drive and support frontline clinical innovation
  • Improve quality and clinical care for patients
  • Reduce costs for patients and Total Medical Expense (TME) trend
  • Realize internal cost savings through increased efficiency

BCRISP accomplishes this by:

  • Soliciting, evaluating and supporting as many ideas for improving value as possible
  • Strategic investment in small, staged pilots
  • Requiring both clinical and financial metrics/targets as part of initial proposals
  • Engaging stakeholders throughout the process
  • Delivering rapid initial results with proposals to evaluation of pilots in ~10 months
  • Working with departmental and hospital leadership to scale successful programs
