Transforming Health: The Need for an Innovation Ecosystem

 

How do you transform the health care system in mid-flight?

Victor J. Dzau, MD, recently named president of the Institute of Medicine, argues that health care organizations have the ability to create an ecosystem that encourages the creation of ideas, nurtures them through experimentation, and then disseminates them to the rest of the health care system – up to and include commercialization.

His video clip begins with the wry observation that “innovation was not invented in the United States,” and can arise from anywhere.

His comments today were part of the 15th annual MMS  State of the State of Healthcare Leadership Forum.
