HEALTH:FURTHER 2018 |

CLINICIAN INNOVATOR & ENTREPRENEUR TRACK

With the increasing demands of clinical practice and competing administrative priorities on clinicians’ time, health innovation has moved forward without adequate clinician input, often failing to effectively improve patient outcomes or meet the needs of care providers. The Clinician Innovator and Entrepreneur Track is a day dedicated to exploring what happens when innovation sits in the hands that deliver it, discussing how to bring big ideas to market and lead innovative change as a clinician.

Some of the sessions happening at Health:Further

Making an Impact: Leveraging a Clinical Background to Develop Meaningful Innovation

As clinicians, we’re often forced to create innovative workarounds for clinical care processes through the day and over the course of our careers. But, we don’t often understand how to translate the lessons we’ve learned at the bedside into innovative solutions on a larger scale. In this session, we’ll explore how to build upon the years of clinical experience and translate them into solutions at the macro level.

Agents of Change and Making It Happen

In fireside chat format, we’ll have interviews with three successful clinician entrepreneurs who will discuss their time building companies and the challenges they’ve faced along the way. Meant to highlight the common problems that entrepreneurs face along the path, this discussion is meant to highlight those challenges that are specific to the clinical community. We’ll discuss the role of a Chief Medical Officer, Medical Advisor, Informed Investor, and full-time vs. fractional involvement with a business.

Collaboration for Successful Innovation: How to Partner with Delivery Systems

As clinicians, we’ve worked on the care delivery side of hospitals and health system organizations. Translating that clinical knowledge into innovative solutions that can be scaled and delivered to larger and more complex organizations is a critical piece of innovation based entrepreneurship.  In this session, we’ll explore the opportunities and challenges of integrating new innovations into complex health systems and strategies for effective and successful implementation.

10:00-10:30am: Driving the Future of Healthcare Innovation with Care Redesign

Griffin Myers MD MBA (Oak Street Health)

We all have ideas about ways we would change the practice of healthcare if we could: spend more time with our patients, deliver value over volume, and help mitigate the rising costs of care without an improvement in health outcomes. In this session, we’ll hear from a physician entrepreneur who has done just that. Oak Street Health is revolutionizing the approach to value-based care in the Midwest and Dr. Griffin Myers will discuss his approach to medicine, how he balances clinical time with his business endeavors, and the challenges he’s faced along the way.
