At Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health system, the concept of traditional healthcare is challenged daily—resulting in a transformation of care and the patient experience as we know it.

Jefferson Health—a twelve-hospital health system in the greater-Philadelphia area, featuring 2,824 licensed acute care beds and a wide variety of specialty areas of practice—is in the midst of a digital and clinical transformation. In just the past few years, Jefferson Health has aggressively piloted and launched numerous consumer and clinical applications that are fundamentally changing the way care is accessed. They’ve received nationwide acclaim for the launch of nationally recognized brands such as JeffConnect (a mobile telehealth service providing anytime, anywhere healthcare) and for developing mobile apps like myJeffHealth and myBaby@Jeff that enable quick and easy access to local healthcare. Jefferson Health’s dedication to the art of innovation is undeniable.
