Real World Ways For Healthcare Pros To Create A True Culture Of Innovation

Fourth "Trends from the Trenches" Webinar Gives Practical Tips Combining Data, Insights & More To Activate Innovative Ideas That Produce Positive Results

 

NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Many people in the healthcare arena have used the word "innovation" countless times, highlighting just how necessary it is for progress. But when it comes down to actually implementing truly innovative plans, many professionals don't know how to transform promising concepts into concrete, productive changes to their culture and their overall operating principles.

The popular webinar series that launched last fall — Healthcare Innovation: Trends From The Trenches –- is tackling that challenge with grounded, practical advice in its fourth webinar entitled, Mastering the Front and Back End of Innovation, scheduled to air on Feb. 14 at noon, Eastern Time.

This webinar will combine conclusions from the three previous webinars and show how true innovation can take shape and lead professionals in hospitals and other healthcare systems to find new solutions to any problem.

Corporate Anthropologist and President of Simon Associates Management Consultants Andrea Simon will host this webinar, which will cover:

  • Taking data and ideas and envisioning new ways to solve long-term, lingering problems and others that are just emerging due to recent reforms.
  • Transforming your most popular and tangible ideas into testable innovations.
  • Showcasing your most successful innovations in ways that will help your entire culture to become truly innovative – not just in words, but also in actions and measurable results.

"This is both an exciting and challenging topic, as true innovation, in practice, means significant change," said Simon, who is also a former hospital executive. "Though humans are programmed to dislike and shun change, I will show the audience how to overcome these obstacles and find the innovations that have the best chance for widespread success, prior to grand-scale implementation."

Simon's webinar will aim to remove the most uncomfortable aspects of innovation, so that audience members will have the courage to enact changes that will help them and their organizations move forward, instead of stagnating or moving backward compared to their competitors.

Simon is looking forward to sharing her latest recommendations, while also hearing from her audience about ways they have tried to bring new ideas to life, what the results have been, and where the process can be improved.  In fact, she encourages people to register here at their earliest convenience and include a question or anecdote for her ahead of the Feb. 14 webinar session.

Additional webinars will include: The Changing Healthcare Marketplace on Mar. 14, with co-host Margaret Davino, Partner, Kaufman, Borgeest & Ryan, The Future of Healthcare Marketing is Digital on Apr. 25 with co-host Ben Dillon, Co-Owner and VP of Geonetric Inc., and finally Men's Health: An Emerging Market for Healthcare Providers And A Response To A Growing Crisis on May 9 with featured speaker, Charles Modlin, MD, MBA, FACS.  Each webinar will start at noon, Eastern Time.  For more information, go to:www.simonassociates.net.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
