Culture of Innovation
Culture of Innovation: How can healthcare build a culture of innovation and ultimately transform to be a better connected system? There may be no shortage of good ideas, but there are still many internal, organisational and structural barriers which make it difficult to bring those ideas into reality. We need to start thinking differently about how we approach healthcare in general. That is, how we engage with health consumers and patients around their health literacy and personal well-being, how we manage good ideas to projects and acceptance of failure, and how we collaborate and work together as key stakeholders in building an asynchronous healthcare system.
Our key take-away as participants and observers at the event were:
- The culture, approaches and systems required for effective innovation in healthcare
- What are the business drivers of innovation in healthcare?
- What are the disruptive services, product offerings, technologies and business models in the healthcare landscape?
- How do we manage the risks and inherent failures of innovation?
- How do we trial new ideas beyond the domains of our current funding, systems and processes?
- How do we leverage the cross-functional and cross-industry collaboration that innovation demands?
This session also reflected on the Australian Government’s Innovation Statement and State government programs, and highlighted changes in legislation regarding corporate governance and innovation.
