Welcome to the UNC Health Care and UNC School of Medicine Center for Innovation
Welcome to Innovate Health Care @ Carolina, the Center for Innovation of UNC Health Care and the UNC School of Medicine.
The framework of health care delivery is shifting rapidly across the US, driving an increased focus on cost efficiency, quality of care, innovative and coordinated health care delivery, better integration of technology and informatics, and alignment of incentives between health care providers, payers and other participants in the health care equation. The Center for Innovation is a space for experimentation in the service of creative disruption of health care delivery. It provides support for bringing great ideas to implementation, a forum for the formation of public-private partnerships, and a learning laboratory for internal and external partners to test their visions for promoting a healthier future. The Center for Innovation wishes to partner with innovative organizations and individuals to transform the nation’s health care delivery system, and we invite you to contact us to discuss collaborative opportunities.
The Center for Innovation comprises a small set of core resources, the Innovation Council , and the Innovation Leadership Group. Plans are underway to launch an Academy of Innovators to engage an interested community in forums aimed at developing and furthering health care innovation. Check back soon for additional information about the Academy of Innovators and its programs.
