Michael Ackerman, director of the Master in Healthcare Innovation Program at The Ohio State University, believes that every innovation program must do three things in tandem:

  1. Innovation – filling gaps where no solution currently exists, in a way that adds value
  2. Renovation – quality improvement and process improvement
  3. Exnovation – removing functions that no longer add value; also known as de-implementation

When practiced together, and ideally led by different teams within the organization, the 3 pillars of The Novation Dynamic help us overcome the notorious friction that has slowed healthcare innovation for too long.

You’ll Learn:

  • The 3 pillars of The Novation Dynamic and how to apply them in your organization
  • The 3 things that make innovation so hard in healthcare and how to address them
  • How to do evidenced-based innovation even though innovation is, by definition, void of evidence
  • Why we’re seeing so much innovation right now during the pandemic, and what we can learn from the experience to make sure we never slow back down.
  • How to create a culture of innovation (plus, a killer idea to make your end of year reviews meaningful at the same time).
  • Why no innovation should be deployed without a scheduled reevaluation date.
  • How to tap the tremendous potential of nurses to drive innovation
