Innovation at the Forefront of Healthcare Transformation

Closing on Jan.12, the Call for Proposals – for the National Healthcare Innovation Summit – focuses on driving growth with innovation to build new markets and new services

Whether it’s a new way to engage patients or new business models for contracting with employers, innovation takes its place at the forefront of healthcare transformation.

The National Healthcare Innovation Summit, which will be held in Chicago on June 15-17 focuses on innovative solutions that meet the challenges of higher quality, better patient experiences and more affordable care. The agenda includes keynotes, fireside chats, panels and an innovation gallery.

“The conference brings together leaders tasked with the transformation of large delivery systems and who look for innovations to change how we deliver and pay for healthcare. In these types of environments, attendees learn how to solve problems or address challenges that pertain to their own situation,” said Wendy Everett ScD, co-chair of the conference, and chief executive officer, NEHI.

 Now, through the Call for Proposals, healthcare providers, leaders and patients can submit proven innovations and lessons learned until the deadline, which is 11:59 p.m. CST on Jan. 12, 2015. ­­­­Visit the website and submit a proposal today.

“At the National Healthcare Innovation Summit, we feature insights from healthcare and other industry innovators who have successfully demonstrated high-impact results and strong evidence of a Return on Innovation,” said Molly Joel Coye, MD, MPH, one of the co-chairs of the Summit, and chief innovation officer, UCLA Health System.

In 2015,  the Summit theme, “Innovation: Growth to Greatness,” will examine ways to lead growth and service to our communities while building strong, innovative delivery systems, with presentations including:

  • Meeting strategic needs for growth and return on innovation;
  • Contrasting innovation as in-house process redesign vs. adoption of commercial innovations;
  • Showcasing innovations in behavioral health for the severe mentally ill;
  • Highlighting the roles of innovation centers and leaders in major system transformation;
  • Making disruption appealing in major system transformation:
  • Innovating to maximize performance under fee for service (FFS) and global budgets; and
  • Partnering with new market entrants.

Sessions will focus on innovations, programs and leadership strategies that are driving revenue growth and fueling market expansion among an expanding network of innovators drawn from integrated delivery systems, medical groups, health plans and community service.
