MedStar Institute for Innovation

MedStar Institute for Innovation in Washington, D.C., was chartered in 2009 and is led by Mark S. Smith, MD. The institute has developed numerous capabilities for MedStar, such as the National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare, which optimizes care systems and processes to best complement human behavior.

The institute also developed the MedStar Simulation Training and Education Lab, which combines interactive online training, 3D virtual simulations and hands-on learning for all MedStar associates. Another project, the MI2 Greenhouse, serves as a temporary place for startup clinical and operational initiatives that could play an important role in the health system's future. Current greenhouse projects include the MedStar Telehealth Innovation Center and MedStar Pharmacogenics Initiative.

MI2 also co-hosts challenges featuring individuals with creative and innovative ideas from within MedStar.
