Allina to Build Innovation Center

The discoveries just keep getting better. First, this place earlier in the week. And now this press release from Allina in Minnesota:

Allina Hospitals & Clinics today announced it is creating a new, $100 million Center for Health Care Innovation to support innovations in both clinical and population health research that can be translated to improved health for patients and the wider community.

Areas of focus for the new Center include:

  • new models of care and coverage for populations currently underserved
  • investment in innovative community health initiatives
  • developing new approaches to care and disseminating that knowledge
  • supporting and expanding clinical research throughout Allina to improve patient care.

Not only is Allina making a concerted (and concentrated) effort at health care innovation, they are also working on improving the health of the communities they serve—a public health role that hospitals should be pursuing.
