The latest innovation in health care research sheds light on practices health systems employ for efficiently scaling innovation.
Trends for Scaling Innovation in Health Care examines commonalities among health systems that report their organization can scale and implement innovation efficiently. The Center for Connected Medicine partnered with The Health Management Academy to survey executives of leading health systems on innovation.
The report offers readers a checklist of six actions health systems can take to accelerate innovation, gleaned from quantitative and qualitative surveys of C-suite health system leaders, and the research findings that underscore the trends.
For example, findings indicate health system organizational structure and process play a role in efficient scaling and implementation of innovation across health systems. Of the one-third of health systems reporting that they can implement and scale innovation “somewhat quickly,” most have a formal process in place for doing so.
Also, health systems with defined innovation departments are more likely to have a formal process for scaling innovation than those without a defined innovation department, and yet fewer than half of health systems have these infrastructures in place.
