MultiCare to launch new health innovation program

Tacoma, Wash.-based MultiCare Health System is partnering with The Innovation Institute to implement a program focused on creating new medical devices and products to improve patient experiences.

The health system's innovation arm MultiCare Capital Partners will work with the Innovation Institute to enhance its care delivery platforms, according to the Aug. 11 news release.

The Innovation Institute is partnered with five additional health system member owner investors: Bon Secours Mercy Health in Cincinnati; Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System in Baton Rouge, La.; Avera Health in Sioux Falls, S.D.; Children's Hospital Orange County (Calif.).; and Valley Children's in Madera County, Calif.
