BluePrint Healthcare IT Innovation Exchange

BluePrint Healthcare IT Information Exchange (BIX) has brought together over 70 primarily provider-based and related healthcare innovation centers who have participated in one or more Innovation Exchange Summit Workshop since 2012. The Summit Workshops focus on operational issues for innovation centers such as developing dashboard metrics and ROI related to delivery of services and commercialization, exploring the changing role of innovation centers within their parent organizations and engaging clinicians and patients as stakeholders in innovation programs. Participants fully engage in breakout and plenary sessions, not watching talking heads. Cross-fertilization and collaboration are also encouraged in 15-minute speed dating sessions aided by profiles of each innovation center.
