At Harris Health, the culture of innovation starts with our staff.
Over the years, Harris Health staff have submitted thousands of ideas and netted more than $30 million in savings and cost avoidance.
What started out as a suggestion box has evolved into the Center for Innovation.
The Center for Innovation’s goal is to create a culture of innovation throughout Harris Health. It was founded with the hope that each and every member of Harris Health will have the desire and opportunity to share their ideas to create better work or patient experience, enhance patient care or improve processes.
We believe the only way a culture of innovation can truly emerge is when everyone within the system is given permission to be innovative and understand their responsibility to participate in bringing their vision to fruition.
Center for Innovation's Mission:We foster innovation by engaging our associates and providing a platform and framework within which to bring their ideas to life. We assist in identifying workplace opportunities by providing the methodology, techniques and resources needed to develop ideas that create new value for our patients, associates, medical staff and partners.
Center for Innovation's Vision:Innovation will sustain our healthcare advantage in this evolving healthcare environment.
Innovation SummitEvery year Harris Health System hosts an Innovation Summit to celebrate and recognize employees who put innovative ideas into action.
