Last week, CVS Health announced the official opening of its Digital Innovation Lab in Boston, a new and inventive facility that is focused on creating a digital, accessible and integrated personal experience across the pharmacy and health sectors. The Lab will serve as a hub for the rapidly growing digital team at CVS Health, which (as a whole) will remain headquartered in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

According to Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer for CVS Health, Brian Tilzer, “Digital technologies are ubiquitous and highly configurable”–a powerful motivator behind CVS Health’s decision to double its digital investment. CVS Health anticipates an increasing preference among customers to manage personal health via digital means and “the opening of [the] Innovation Lab is a significant step forward on this path.”

The launch of the Digital Innovation Lab marks CVS Health’s latest stride in prioritizing digital health endeavors. The new Lab is staffed with an array of team members from various backgrounds including developers, product managers, digital strategists and user-experience designers. The primary focus of the Lab will include the exploration of potential digital health breakthroughs via mobile, connected health, digital therapeutics and more. The Lab will embody CVS Health digital team’s mantra to run like a startup by rapidly testing, improving and implementing new programs with efficiency and accuracy.
