Healthcare innovation is inherently intertwined with information technology. Yet that very technology often gets in the way of innovation. The variability in our underlying platforms and lack of interoperability introduce barriers that prevent local innovations from spreading. Join Dave Baker as he describes challenges facing Ascension and the solutions being put in place to accelerate innovation and allow them to scale across the organization. Dave will discuss Ascension’s approaches to establishing an IT Innovation Center of Excellence, managing innovation ideas from across the organization, establishing sandbox environments for experimentation, and building partnerships inside and outside of Ascension.
