About Breakthrough

HITLAB Breakthrough Alliance was created to accelerate digital health innovations through evidence-based research and insights. This new digital health alliance is a subscription-based service with a mission to improve health outcomes and care delivery from verifying emerging technologies and research—driven by the perspectives and strategies of its members.

NYCEDC launched the Digital Health Breakthrough Network in 2016 as part of its broader efforts to facilitate growth in New York City’s healthcare and life sciences sectors. Now, HITLAB operates the program independently and continues to provide prototype testing services to the digital health ecosystem.
