Partners HealthCare is a hospital and physicians network that includes Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Partners is committed to patient care, research, teaching, and service to the community locally and globally.
Partners Connected Health works to improve the experience of healthcare and redefine technology-enabled health and wellness.
