Beverly Hardy

Innovation Strategy Manager, Brigham Digital Innovation Hub, Brigham & Women’s Hospital

As an Innovation Strategy Manager for the Brigham Digital Innovation Hub (iHub), Bev is a “matchmaker” between strategic and operational hospital needs, and external solutions in the form of start-ups and industry collaborations. A product manager by training, Bev has a passion for bringing together people with diverse backgrounds and needs and uniting them to create innovative solutions. Prior to iHub she built practice management tools for Federally Qualified Health Centers at athenahealth, developed e-commerce Web applications at Rue La La, and client social networking products for the Corporate Executive Board (now Gartner). Based on her experiences with process improvement and digital solutions outside healthcare, her interests are around exploring and strategizing what principles and processes can be adapted to our industry, both in actual product design and also around the innovation process itself. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a secondary concentration in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard University.
