In a previous blog post on innovation I pointed to self-imposed limitations, such as a restrained imagination or disillusionment around the possibility of positive disruption, as barriers to change in healthcare. One way to overcome these constraints is by partnering with others who don’t share the same confines. By marrying inventors with bold healthcare leaders, new and valuable solutions can spread throughout the industry more quickly, unburdening patients and the people who care for them.
On Tuesday May 5, prior to the eighth semi-annual CXO Roundtable, Vocera’s Experience Innovation Network is taking the next step in bringing innovation to the frontlines of healthcare. Together with Rock Health, we are proud to present the first Experience Innovation Showcase intended to fuel rapid adoption of cutting-edge technology. This invitation-only event pairs leading healthcare technology companies with hospitals and health systems that desire to be early adopters. Participating technology companies will cross a spectrum from start-ups to relative maturity. Ultimately, we aim to hasten market uptake of solutions that hardwire a more humanized healthcare experience.
Rock Health funds and supports startups building the next generation of technologies transforming healthcare. Their portfolio is the result of screening more than 3,500 digital health startups, selecting less than 2% based on a company’s ability to scale and impact the healthcare industry. At the showcase, all demonstrated solutions will be market ready for impact.
This rapid-fire format of the Experience Innovation Showcase will feature hand-selected tools designed to provide an improved patient experience. Each technology firm will have 10 minutes to tell the story of their solution and propose a healthcare adoption strategy, including target users, time to results, and key measures. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions after each presentation. At the end of all the presentations, committed health systems will align themselves with one technology, promising to test the solution and to report the results at an upcoming event.
