Stories of Innovation
Innovation occurs when we break free from an old way of thinking and embrace a more effective way of solving a problem or meeting a need. At Primary Care Progress, we believe the power of creative thinking is essential to transforming primary care. Across the country, clinicians have decided they can no longer wait on top-down change in the health care system. They’re taking primary care innovation into their own hands - trying out new models and approaches they hope will improve access to and quality of care, provide patients with an overall better experience and reduce the traditional clinician’s workload.
What does innovation in primary care look like? There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to innovation in primary care. Just as practices are unique - with different needs, strengths and challenges - so are their approaches to improving health care delivery. Innovations can be micro or macro. They might change the way a clinic is staffed. They might add iPads to the waiting room. Or they might find a way to introduce young minds to an inspiring field of medicine.
We've collected just a small handful of these stories in our video series, "Stories of Innovation." It's our way of sharing some of the unique and diverse stories of innovation with the primary care community. We hope these snapshots of innovative people and approaches might provide models, inspiration and ideas with the community. We hope they will encourage other innovators to keep going with their projects and to share their stories.
