Wellbe Announces Webinar on Innovation in Orthopedics

Hear from the Hospital for Special Surgery on building a culture of innovation

OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community sponsored by Wellbe, is hosting a complimentary webinar featuring Mark Angelo, Vice President, Innovation & Business Development for Hospital for Special Surgery, titled “Building an Orthopedic Innovation Engine.”

The external healthcare environment is changing rapidly and providers are under increasing pressure to innovate with increasing speed and efficiency.

Be it experimenting with new care delivery models to improve care coordination, redesigning workflows to enhance efficiency, or developing new products that improve clinical outcomes, hospitals and their service lines are looking for effective ways to harness the creative power of physicians and employees to solve problems that matter. However, few organizations innovate in an orderly, reliable way.

Great ideas remain captive in the heads of physicians and employees and one-off attempts to spur innovation through “hack-a-thons” and “pitch days” prove disappointing. As an academic medical center and a world leader in orthopedics, Hospital for Special Surgery has a long history of results-oriented innovation.

In this webinar, Angelo will share:
– HSS’ systematic approach for driving innovation
– Strategies for generating new insights and developing novel solutions
– Processes for piloting and testing new ideas
– Guiding principles for creating a culture of innovation
– Advice on how to build your very own innovation infrastructure
