The TEam

We're bringing health, tech
and innovation together...

on a simple, convenient, and affordable digital platform
to transform our broken $4 trillion healthcare system.


Our Journey So Far


Prompted by the pandemic, innovation firm The Disruption Lab and digital learning company ThinkThru set out to convert in-person learning for digital delivery.


The Disruption Lab and thinkThru experimented with features, technologies and a platform model that would conveniently deliver expertise and resourses to healthcare innovators.


Care Transformation Studio was incorporated and launched at ViVE2023 in Nashville, TN - a city with a 50 year tradition of healthcare innovation.


And the next chapter...

No one person or enterprise can address all the challenges with our healthcare delivery system. It is complex, expensive, difficult to access, and focuses on illness rather than health.

While the pandemic was tragic, a gift that it provided was recognition that innovation can be accelerated faster than any of us thought possible.

With this new reality, the resources supporting innovation pre-pandemic are not sufficient to support post-pandemic transformation. Attending in-person events and annual conferences to learn and connect is important - but not sufficient.

In our omnichannel world, the Care Transformation Studio provides anytime access to a platform where innovators conveniently access expertise in healthcare, technology, and innovation.

They can see the latest content and participate in virtual events and training. They connect with solution providers and evaluate new products and services. And they interact with colleagues, post jobs, and seek new opportunities.

Participants in this new healthcare innovation studio include clinicians and executives, mentors and consultants, payers, and employers, entrepreneurs and investors, and solution providers.

Together we are innovating healthcare faster than we ever thought possible.
