What’s better than an effective solution that vastly improves patient engagement, experience and outcomes? Effective solutions that improve outcomes are also cheap and easy to use. There are examples of this kind of innovation across healthcare — from using the model of an airline pilot-style checklist to improving teeth brushing that work because of a different kind of thinking about some of the most pervasive problems in healthcare.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • Case studies offering top examples of out-of-the-box thinking in health care.
  • How thinking differently about problems can change everything about how a health system tackles a problem.
  • Lessons healthcare can take from other industries about overcoming barriers and empowering creative thinking into its culture.
