Some health care organizations are creating innovation centers to bridge the divide between tech entrepreneurs, designers, and clinicians who work on the front lines of care. In innovation centers popping up across the U.S., collaborative teams are working to discover, develop, test, and spread new approaches to delivering patient care.  <br /><br />

A chartpack of survey findings reveals how these centers define innovation, what factors into their investment decisions, the technologies they most commonly use, and much more. <br />
