One Doctor’s Mission to Hack Pediatrics


Innovation Through Collaboration


Dr. Michael Docktor is a practicing gastroenterologist at Boston Children’s Hospital with a research and clinical interest in inflammatory bowel disease. He works to use technology and design thinking as a way to improve patient care and experience.

As the Director of Clinical Innovation, he also helps their innovation team build internal apps within Boston Children's and is working to bring outside technologies into the organization. Named one of MedTech Boston's "40 under 40 in Healthcare", Michael is passionate about technology and the startup ecosystem both within and outside of healthcare. He co-founded and leads Hacking Pediatrics, a group whose mission is to bring together talented innovators from diverse areas of expertise such as medicine, technology and business to build solutions for children and their families through hackathons.

We connected with Dr. Docktor while at HIMSS 2015, and had a fantastic chat with him.
