Paying it Forward

Tomas Gregorio, Senior Executive Director at NJIT’s New Jersey Innovation Institute, sat down during a segment of One-on-One with Steve Adubato to discuss the ways the organization is using that $49.6 million effectively.

The grant provides the institute with the opportunity to advance health care technology and improve their physician’s capabilities; helping them achieve “precision medicine” in order to provide New Jersey’s patients with the best possible care.

The government’s grant also changes how physicians earn money, in an attempt to improve patient care. If physicians do not decrease the rate of re-admissions, among other standards, the government can provide less reimbursement. These new standards are in place to improve the quality of health care in New Jersey.
