June 8, 2017


Summary:

We propose a simple five-step process to provide structure to the innovation process that will reduce the number of projects in the pipeline, align the ongoing efforts with the strategy, and increase the number of next-generation and breakthrough projects.



Abstract:

Many healthcare organizations have or are creating innovation units. However, the results are not always as expected. That is, these innovation units are often cost centers that do not contribute to the organization’s goals or bottom line. We propose a simple five-step process to provide structure to the innovation process that will reduce the number of projects in the pipeline, align the ongoing efforts with the strategy, and increase the number of next-generation and breakthrough projects. We provide an example of an education program that enables the formation of teams and the vetting of concepts, and outline a workshop to get organizations started with building a sustainable and humming innovation engine.

For over 45 years.

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
