Webinar on scaling innovation at health systems features leaders from Yale, Ochsner, Duke, and UPMC – learn more about them

Innovation in health care is a priority across the industry – and especially at health systems that want to boost patient engagement, improve health outcomes, and reduce costs, among many priorities.

But what does “innovation” mean to leaders of health systems and how are they scaling new ideas and technologies within their organizations?

To answer those questions, the Center for Connected Medicine produced a report, “Trends for Scaling Innovation in Health Care,” and convened a panel of experts to discuss the topic on a webinar.

On the webinar, hear from Lisa Stump, chief information officer at Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine, Aimee Quirk, CEO of innovationOchsner, and Erich Huang, Assistant Dean for Biomedical Informatics at Duke University Health Systems. The webinar will be moderated by Rob Hartman, director of business development at UPMC Enterprises.
