Partnerships for Health System Innovation and Improvement

We are excited to be involved in Gilead's 'Partnerships for Health System Innovation and Improvement' webinar on the 12th September!

Many countries around the world are experiencing strains on their healthcare systems. innovation has the potential to support healthcare systems to strive for improved productivity to transform limited resources into valued outcomes. However, the adoption and uptake of innovation is often hampered by a variety of barriers concerning technological advances, health system complexity, and stakeholder engagement.

Overcoming barriers to innovation adoption in health systems requires a breadth of solutions and the involvement of different stakeholder groups. Multi-stakeholder partnerships can remove silos, enhance knowledge exchange, conduct additional research on technology and implementation, and influence policy. This webinar will explore the use of such partnerships as a solution to overcoming the barriers that impede efficiency enhancement and innovation.

This webinar will include:

  • An overview of the role of innovation in health system efficiency and barriers that impede the adoption of innovation.
  • Real-world examples of multi-stakeholder partnerships and how they addressed barriers to the adoption of innovation
  • Opportunities to have your questions answered by an expert panel
