AHA launches center for health innovation

The American Hospital Association introduced a center for health innovation Sept. 5 to provide hospitals with resources and support as they respond to changes in the healthcare landscape.

Through the center, the AHA will offer hospitals insights into best practices to address emerging areas of healthcare, such as new payment, delivery and performance improvement models. The center will also test new ideas that improve outcomes and increase the affordability of healthcare services.

The center of health innovation will initially focus on developing market intelligence, innovation competitions, cybersecurity services and innovation boot camps.

"This is a pivotal moment for the field, as hospitals and healthcare systems face unprecedented challenges and opportunities," Rick Pollack, president and CEO of the AHA, said in a news release. "Innovation isn't limited to Silicon Valley. Hospitals and health systems across the country have been incubators of innovation."
