I recently had the privilege of sharing my personal nursing innovation story at the inaugural Nursing Research and Innovation Day organized by University Hosptials Ventures at the University Hosptials, Cleveland.
Nursing : The Edge of Innovation
Checklist for Restarting Healthcare
The question of how and when to re-open businesses in the United States in the wake of COVID-19 is fraught with a multitude of economic, political, and often emotional decisions. Central to this debate is how to and when to resume delivering traditional healthcare services that has been retooled to manage the COVID-19 surge or on standby hoping the surge never happens. As the hospitals prepared for a deluge of critically ill patients, most placed elective procedures on hold, reallocated resources and reduced capacity to manage the surge of highly infectious patients in acute respiratory distress.

The Market and Innovation Gap
George W. Bush, in his State of the Union speech in 2004, stated, "By computerizing health records, we can avoid dangerous medical mistakes, reduce costs, and improve care."As a result, healthcare technology investment in the 2000s focused on the digitization of the medical record and its associated processes. President Obama solidified this mandate with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requiring the electronic medical record to take effect by 2014.
From Bed Management to Discharge Planning this period ushered in substantial investments in data collection and data digitization technologies. These investments are depicted on the left side of the infographic below. Costs, however, were not reduced.
