Game Changing Partnerships

We would be naïve in thinking we can transform health care alone. By working alongside some of the nation’s leading experts, we are all poised to better care for the growing population. Hackensack Meridian Health is committed to building strong partnerships and working together for a healthier state. Significant strides have been made, and the emphasis on collaboration only continues to grow.

A Partnership Built to Break Through

The Memorial Sloan Kettering–Hackensack Meridian Health partnership brings together unparalleled cancer care experts to find more cures faster while ensuring access to the highest-quality, personalized cancer care when and where people need it.

Technology Providing Unparalleled Insights

In October, IBM Watson Health, Cota, and Hackensack Meridian Health collaborated to pilot a combination of IBM Watson and Cota technology for the first time – bringing Cota’s value based care and real-world data into IBM’s Watson for Oncology clinical decision support tool.

Unique Community Partnerships

Hackensack Meridian Heath remains committed to improving the health of not only its patients – but of its entire community – and is proud of its many sports and organizational partnerships which include: the New York Giants, the New York Red Bulls, the Northern Trust PGA, the New Jersey Devils, Brooklyn Nets, and key Madison Square Garden properties including the New York Knicks, New York Liberty, the Garden of Dreams, and Radio City Music Hall.

A Promising Future

In 2016, half of the increase in emergency room visits in New Jersey were related to patients’ behavioral health issues. The state is facing an opioid epidemic that claimed more than 2,200 lives in 2016, a record high and 40 percent increase from the previous year. By exploring a partnership with Carrier Clinic, a leader in behavioral health with a 100-year history in the state, we are continuing our commitment to fully integrate behavioral health into our network for the benefit of our patients.
