We are an initiative of the D'Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR) that encourages open innovation and entrepreneurship in healthcare.


Opened in September 2018 by the D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR), the Open D’Or Healthcare Innovation Hub works as an open entrepreneurship and innovation platform. Headquartered in IDOR and working together with the Digital Transformation Sector of Rede D’Or São Luiz (RDSL), Open D’Or is responsible for integrating innovative startups with RDSL businesses.

The platform also develops partnerships with universities and health and technology research institutes. It has a co-working space and infrastructure that allows startups to test their solutions safely and supervised by professionals in the healthcare area.

Open D’Or has an advisory council composed of IDOR and RDSL executives and external advisors with extensive experience in innovation, investment, technology, and health. In addition, our team is formed by business, technology and healthcare professionals, adding RDSL’s hospitals expertise to the analysis and development of Open D’Or solutions.

Every month, the platform hosts the Open D’Or talks, an open event that offers lectures related to innovation and digital transformation in health, aiming to discuss relevant topics in the sector and stimulating the interaction among different ecosystem agents: professionals working in the corporate marketplace, physicians, researchers, entrepreneurs, among others.


– To support solutions that contribute to the creation of a digital platform that simplifies the experience and enhances the quality of healthcare for users (patients, physicians, and staff);

– To contribute to the culture of innovation within the organization;

– To be in constant evaluation of emerging technologies applied to health as AI, AR/VR, blockchain and IoT;

– To connect RDSL with the world’s leading health innovation ecosystems.



Aligned with the principles of the digital transformation sector of Rede D’Or São Luiz, Open D’Or seeks innovative solutions for the journey of patients and physicians, implementing end-to-end health and executive management, providing information and helping with administration inside and outside the hospitals.



We have an innovation laboratory that replicates situations in the hospital environment to enable tests and simulations of new technologies. Partner companies and startups collaborate with us to devise and demonstrate new possibilities for solutions in the hospital environment.



If you have a startup with an innovative healthcare solution, connect with us. Submitted proposals will be evaluated according to the framework criteria and ongoing innovation projects. Startups are selected to Interact with RDSL and with IDOR physicians and managers to evaluate connection possibilities.
