Welcome to classic rewind on This Week in Health Innovation.
On June 9, 2011 at The then newly launched Kaiser Center for Total Health in Washington, D.C., KP co-hosted an event bringing together health innovators for collaboration with intent to transform health care through knowledge sharing.
Titled the Health Innovation Summit was part of the Washington DC Health Innovation Week, a week of activities that brought together government agencies with academia and the health care and technology industries to spur new thinking in health.
At the Summit, leaders from the new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Innovation Center, along with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Kaiser Permanente and Vangent and 100 other national leaders in innovation gathered to share knowlege, best practices and a vision for the future of the American healthcare system.
This was promoted to "convene a growing community of innovation leaders to spur industry-wide knowledge sharing. The event will be the first in a series of discussions that explore the ways that innovation can drive systematic improvement of the health care system.'
In this segment, Richard Gilfillan, MD, acting director of the ACA enabled CMS Innovation Center aka CMMI, who currently serves as Chief Executive Officer of Trinity Health, a $17.6 billion Catholic health system that serves communities in 22 states. Dr. Gilfillan weighed in with his insights on real 'innovation' for the healthcare ecosystem - which he emphasized is not the next new shiney thing whether medical device, drug, platform or app, but a business model that makes 'sustainable sense' by advancing the three part triple aim - better experience of care, better outcomes at lower per capita costs.
