Those on the front lines of care and operations have the best ideas to improve and transform health care. They live it every day and have firsthand knowledge of areas in need of new ways of thinking.
As a result, we need your help to inspire Mission Partners across the Ministry to make their voices heard and impact how care is delivered to those we serve.
One way we encourage Mission Partners to submit their ideas is to coordinate interactive competitions where they can solve for identified issues our health care system faces.
We also aim to inspire innovation by helping our regional facilities create their own hubs of innovation where they can ideate, test and develop solutions to health challenges that impact their own communities.
Located at OSF HealthCare Saint Paul Medical Center, the hub will engage the region’s Mission Partners in education and training opportunities as well as initiatives to develop innovative health care solutions.
The hub also offers a virtual reality set-up that uses the latest Advanced Imaging and Modeling Lab (AIM) technology.
We provide opportunities for all Mission Partners to work alongside innovators in health care, pursue research and innovation projects or conduct clinical trials through opportunities within OSF HealthCare and our partnership with the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria.
