2 minute video: driving innovation and change in health enterprises

‘Transformation’ is one of those words that sometimes gets used a bit, well, aspirationally. ;>

But healthcare organizations really are disrupting business as usual thinking to embrace consumerism, new technology and emerging medical knowledge. Last week my colleague Jake DiMare asked for some insights on how successful teams are doing this.

Here’s the quick three count:

  1. Engage the inventive spirit across the enterprise — encouraging researchers and makers to build and share in as decentralized a way as the organization can allow.
  2. Provide a business and testing framework that allows these distributed efforts to connect to the enterprise for recognition, resources and reward.
  3. Balance speedy tests and smart growth. Agile testing has a stronger bias toward action than laying the foundation for industry changing growth. There is often a strategic pause between speedy sprints, and the marathon of scaling to add platforms, people and process to gain the executional stability (and manageability) that growth requires.

If you’d like to dig-in to specifics, I’ve written about lessons from Penn Medicine on constructing better hypotheses for testing.

And here’s an example of invention at scale taking place in China: the zero staff minute clinic.
