American Hospital Association launches new Center for Health Innovation

Sept. 13, 2018

The American Hospital Association recently announced the launch of the AHA Center for Health Innovation, which they say is designed to provide support to healthcare providers as the field moves into a phase of significant and dynamic change.

Initial offerings from the center include a 90-day “boot camp” that shares the latest and most innovative operational frameworks in healthcare. The AHA also promises cybersecurity support and information sharing to help hospitals streamline processes and effectively respond to emerging trends and regulations.

“This is all about how do we really get the delivery system and the financing system to function in a way where we improve access and we address the issues of affordability,” say Brian Gragnolati, the chair-elect of AHA, in a promotional video accompanying the announcement.

In a blog post, Nancy Agee, president and CEO of Carilion Clinic and current chair of AHA, celebrates the new endeavor.

“The Center is addressing members’ most critical issues: Innovation capacity, affordability and value, population health, performance improvement, new payment and delivery models, and other emerging issues,” writes Agee. “It will be working to help hospitals and health systems build the capacities and competencies they need to succeed in a rapidly changing field.”
