Banner Health: Banner Innovation Group

Banner Health in Phoenix created the Banner Innovation Group to expand and consolidate initiatives from across its system into a central resource with expertise to identify consumer pain points and unmet needs. The innovation team comprises 15 staff members with experience in advertising, retail, social work, startups, technology and other areas. 

Working with $5 million to $10 million in venture funding and investments annually, Banner Innovation Group has its sights on various projects. Banner Innovation Group is currently leveraging telehealth capabilities to provide immediate behavioral health services in conjunction with annual primary care visits. The innovation group is also exploring how telehealth can be used to offer stronger coordination of care to all communities that Banner serves. 

Additionally, Banner Innovation Group is pursuing partnerships with industry leaders and startups to add features to the patient experience, such as digital triage, online check-in and navigation. Banner Innovation Group is also working with local and national businesses to provide healthcare in convenient locations.
