Innovation at Regenstrief: Leveraging novel ideas to improve health care
Date:10/17/2011

INDIANAPOLIS Integrating some of the best new practices of industry into the strengths of the academic research process, the Regenstrief Institute is launching an initiative to encourage and propel innovation. The Institute has over 40 years of experience as an international leader in improving healthcare delivery.

The program will focus on enhancements in the Institute's working environment and advancements in providing higher quality, lower cost health care, encouraging revolutionary change, not incremental steps. It will encourage research teams to work together to develop high risk, high reward ideas that, if they come to fruition, could disrupt current approaches to perplexing problems.

"Innovation is our core business," said Regenstrief Institute President and CEO, William Tierney, M.D., discussing the new initiative. "Having worked out ideas, proven feasibility, and obtained pilot data will give our investigators a leg up on their peers in competing for increasingly scarce research dollars."

Supported by a $500,000 grant from the Regenstrief Foundation, the innovation program is being led by Institute Investigator Jon Duke, M.D., who has been named the Institute's first Innovation Officer. The program commences this autumn with a call for promising proposals from across the Institute.

"We are encouraging everyone associated with the Institute to come forth with ideas. Traditionally researchers develop ideas and then pursue funding. Learning from successful organizations such as Google, Facebook and Netflix, we are both accelerating and democratizing the idea process. We are encouraging everyone, from established researchers to fellows-in-training to software developers to research assistants to affiliated clinicians to let us know what they think has potential," said Dr. Duke, an internist and informatics specialist.

Highly respected for long-time leadership in the fields of medical informatics, agi
