From 15th to 26th of February 2016 LAB-B network manager Dr. Ute Hartman visited the Florida Hospital Region Orlando and the embedded Florida Hospital Innovation Lab (FHIL) to initiate collaboration between LAB-B members and Florida Hospital stakeholders. Florida Hospital is a not for profit hospital with 26 campuses all over Florida owned and operated by the Adventist Health System. Several Meetings with R&D Centers, companies and Florida Hospital Care Units took place and led to concrete project ideas. The way an innovation lab works how it identifies and advances innovation could be witnessed at FHIL.
As a follow up to this the founders of Florida Hospital Innovation Lab, Kareen Tilstar und Stefan Herzberg, visited LAB-B in March 2016. Meetings with LAB-B members Klinikum Ernst von Bergmann and GOREHA took place to discuss collaboration agreements.
