The Center for Care Innovations (CCI) and The Innovation Consultancy at Kaiser Permanente, with funding from the Blue Shield of California Foundation, are partnering to launch the second cohort of the Innovation Catalyst Program.
Building on the experience and successes of the 2013 Innovation Catalyst pilot, we aim to continue growing the cohort of catalysts in the safety net to use design thinking and innovation skills to help organizations think and do things differently.
The 2014 Innovation Catalyst Program includes two components that will support the development and testing of innovative approaches concepts in the health care safety net. First, we are looking to expand our network of trained innovators who can apply design thinking and innovation skills to projects across their organization. Second, we are also looking to support new ideas, developed by this cohort of Catalysts, that have the potential to significantly improve care and lower costs.
