Examining Innovation in Health

Examining Innovation in Health: Leaders examining practical change in the age of digital disruption.

How do we embrace innovation and practical change in healthcare in a time of digital disruption? The Innovating Health Series to date has highlighted the need for stronger leadership, understanding the potential of digital, allowing space for creativity and innovation, highlighting the need to work collaboratively, and ensuring the need for health practitioner and consumer engagement as a critical piece in creating new value in the digital age.

This roundtable event will shift our focus in the series to the ‘how’. How we can embed innovation into a large health enterprise. How we can bring diverse partners together to innovate across the care continuum? How do we provide space to innovate and change in an already demanding and busy workplace? It will pose and examine a real life problem shared by a health executive, generate discussion, and incorporate an approach to work through collective ideas to practical solutions that can be shared immediately back in the workplace.

Insights

Our key take-away as participants and observers at the event will be coming shortly.
