Innovation and the Human Experience in Healthcare

Healthcare organizations report diverse and evolving approaches to a common goal

Improving the experience of care can be lost in the push to find innovative ways to improve quality, lower costs, and withstand changing payment models. The Experience Innovation Network, part of Vocera, examined how healthcare organizations keep the human experience front and center in their approaches to innovation.
We found that many healthcare systems aspire to establish a holistic and trusted relationship between providers, patients, and their families as part of their innovation efforts. Those organizations that are effectively addressing both innovation and experience don’t have one ‘right’ approach, but are taking multiple paths to sourcing, developing, testing, and spreading new and valuable solutions.
