Topic: A Pandemic Resistant Framework for Innovation
Join us for this presentation by Reid Stephan, VP, Chief Information Officer, St. Luke’s Health System
Time and Location: February 17th, via Zoom Meeting 12:00-1:00pm
Presentation Summary: Innovation is one of the most frequently used words in business today, which has caused it to become outgrown as a concept and functionally not very useful. This has created an environment where it is possible to discuss innovation with a colleague and unknowingly have a conversation that is singular in intent, but entirely separate in terms of assumptions and understanding. Within the St. Luke’s Integrated Health Technologies (IHT) department, we have been working on establishing a framework for innovation with the goal of defining a common language and standardized approach to make innovation as accessible and repeatable as possible. The intent is to have a framework that will enable demand-side driven innovation rather than supply-side driven efforts that often result in waste. The framework strives to put the consumer at the center and is built on three core principles – empathy, curiosity, and rapid experimentation.
