Ochsner Health System's innovationOchsner (New Orleans). Although innovationOchsner, Ochsner Health System's innovative "think tank," launched in March 2015, the health system opened its first O Bar — a retail-esque space in Ochsner's Center for Primary Care and Wellness where patients can ask questions about wearable technology devices and learn about and test healthcare apps — in July 2014. The system has a long history with innovation on the provider side, too: In 2014 it became the first in the country to integrate its Epic EHR with Apple HealthKit. When it launched innovationOchsner, the system announced a three-year health innovation challenge in collaboration with GE Healthcare that offers a $25,000 prize pool for ideas to help solve some of healthcare's most pressing problems.
