Innovative ideas in healthcare

by Lean Fox

I recently read an article that idenitifed 5 innovative items from automotive that almost didn’t happen, e.g., seatbelts, airbags, catalytic converters, etc. These are now expected, standard items, but recent history tells us that the industry fought their introduction. What innovative idea will healthcare look back on and think why didn’t we do that sooner?! EMRs? ACOs? Lean Thinking?
