Panel: Measuring Outcomes from Innovation
Theme: Innovation Outcomes
Quality, Access, and Cost are always on the mind of hospital administrators, physicians and clinicians, and regulatory agencies. Even with new breakthroughs in science, advancements in technologies, funding, infrastructure and support for innovation, how are these major areas of focus being attached with measurable outcomes? Also, how are hospitals and other members of the innovation ecosystem measuring these outcomes?
Some of the topics addressed in this panel:
- Why are hospitals, startups and other members of the innovation ecosystem having difficulty linking innovations to quality scores and outcomes metrics?
- What are some of the approaches that hospitals can take to begin linking and publishing outcomes from innovation?
- What are some of the commonly agreed upon measures for success and/ or failure?
- Should there be greater flexibility in getting innovation approved, funded, regulated in both clinical and non-clinical settings?
