About InciteHealth


Supporting and creating transformative solutions in primary care by entrepreneurs and innovators in the Harvard community


InciteHealth is an initiative within the Center for Primary Care at Harvard Medical School. Since 2010, the Center has been transforming the delivery of care at local practices, fostering important curricular changes at the Medical School, and supporting health care entrepreneurs. The Center collaborates with strategic partners, patients, students, and trainees to create and share indispensable knowledge that will impact primary care on a national level. The Center has supported 15 teams and provided over $450,000 in direct funding through its two innovation programs: InciteHealth and Agents of Change.

What we do

Creating a supportive culture of innovation and entrepreneurship throughout the HMS ecosystem is central to what we do. We are uniquely positioned to convene early stage healthcare entrepreneurs from Harvard and share our expertise with them in identifying and responding to important primary care challenges and opportunities. We support Harvard based entrepreneurs by connecting them to patients and care teams as co-developers of ideas.

How we do it

Stay tuned for the launch of a primary care business plan competition and a series of opportunities for students to immerse themselves in health care entrepreneurship!

Designing with students

Students are central to what we do and we believe in only creating programs that have the buy-in and support of the students. We are currently recruiting up to six students that represent all classes who will have clear roles in advising, designing and marketing our programs.. If you are a Harvard student and are interested in participating, please contact
