What is Healthcare Innovation?

Healthcare is an industry in transition. It seems that everything is rapidly changing – patient expectations, care models, delivery locations, payment processes. The list goes on and on. With this much change, can healthcare companies afford to rely on the business models of yesterday?
At this seminar participants will:
  • Learn how three leading healthcare providers are embracing innovation to shape the future of healthcare delivery and patient care.
  • Gain an understanding of how companies foster a climate of innovation to drive change to improve the health and health outcomes for the community they serve.
