We know that proper nutrition is essential for a happy, healthy and active innovative brain. So, what is the premium innovation ‘food’ for a healthcare system? It’s feeding the brains of those responsible for developing, leveraging and improving the system with a healthy balance of cool, innovative, ground breaking ideas, products and strategies.
As we are stimulated to envision possibility, we become more likely to be able to strengthen patient outcomes. As we see what others are doing to innovate, we are more likely to think innovatively ourselves. This kind of stimulus is the food for innovative cognition. Yes, we need to eat well through our mouths, but our brain is also fed through the senses. Below are a couple of link to a visual and auditory innovation feast. Gorge yourself. It’s calorie free!
Imaging a future where you project a hologram of a patient from China to New York – where patients do basic monitoring via their home bathroom mirror. Think…
How might these innovations coming from Corning impact healthcare – positively or negatively?
How might you improve your own ability to think about the possibilities?
And If you find this kind of cognitive stimulus “tasty” and you’d enjoy regular snacks – check out the Innovative Brain blog at New and Improved.
Bob Eckert is the opening keynote speaker on Sunday, March 3, at the HIMSS13 Innovation Symposium, where he will examine ‘The Science and Practice of Innovation,’ and how it can be applied at any healthcare organization, regardless of size.
