The delivery of healthcare, particularly in the in-patient setting, is facing rising costs and a lack of robust quality measures. Patients suffer from preventable errors, accidents such as patient-falls continue to occur and infections/environmental hazards complicate patient recovery. These problems plague American Healthcare even as diligent, skilled and passionate clinicians work to help patients and deliver the best care at the right time for the best price.

Listen in as we conclude our three-episode discussion in front of a Carnegie Mellon University audience of researchers, staff and students who are participating in a fireside chat with Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, President and CEO of Allegheny General Hospital.

Healthcare systems around the world are struggling with increased costs and inconsistent quality while trying to provide improved value for patients.  In most health care settings in today’s existing system, no one entity is accountable for improving the combination of patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction); for improving the health of populations; and for reducing the per capita cost of health care. For the health of our communities, for the health of our school systems, and for the health of all patients, companies, providers and payers must collaborate to test new models of care for the broadest adoption of best practices and effective innovations and healthcare technologies.

On this episode of Innovation Unleashed, Dr. Axel Heitmueller, Managing Director of Imperial College Health Partners in the United Kingdom will discuss the way that they work to enable the discovery and adoption of emerging innovations in healthcare; support the adoption and diffusion of existing best practice and innovation so that patients benefit more quickly; and create an innovation-friendly culture and marketplace, strengthening its capacity to partner with academia and industry.
