Senior Fellow

Charlie Garland is a Senior Fellow at HITLAB and the President and Founder of The Innovation Outlet, an independent team of innovation and business strategy consultants. This team also represents a portfolio of functional domain expertise, vertical industry experience, and educational/research specialties, who work collaboratively to address major client challenges.  Charlie has himself helped drive innovation leadership across the healthcare landscape, including hospital systems, physician practices, mobile patient engagement platforms, medical education institutions, health insurers, hospital supply companies, and a diagnostic medicine think-tank.  Part of his expertise comes from identifying innovative solutions in one domain, and repurposing them into a completely new environment.  He has developed an entire portfolio of innovation tools, methods, and logical models (e.g. The Innovation Cube), which he uses in consulting, coaching, training, and mentoring clients to use for creating new value within their everyday functions.

Charlie is an active member of the Healthcare Executives Alumni Group, spawned by the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth, where he earned his MBA.  Charlie graduated with honors from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and from there joined Procter & Gamble, where he was among the leaders of their global Total Quality Management team.  He now lives and works in New York City.
