What is health care innovation?

Health innovation refers to developments in the field of health care that ultimately benefit public or patient health. The World Health Organization listed three areas of potential improvement that sit at the core of health innovation:

  • Health policies, systems and products.
  • Health technologies and services.
  • Methods for delivering these processes and offerings.

Health innovation also focuses on serving vulnerable populations. Improving health outcomes for groups of people who face significant risks can be an especially powerful, positive change.

Why is innovation in health care important?

 

Innovation ultimately means a more focused health care organization and better outcomes for patients. New technologies and tools drive every industry forward, and health care is no exception. Finding more effective, safer ways to test, treat and rehabilitate patients could mean the difference between life and death for the patient, as well as the health care facility.

The increasing pace of technological advancement and policy creation means changes appear more rapidly than they did in the past. As a health innovation student, you’ll learn how to lead the implementation of these developments, manage broad organizational programs, lead processes of transformation, incorporate current trends with interprofessional teams and more.
