We are at the beginning of a historic era for innovation in health care delivery in the US due to the convergence of proliferation of mobile technology and changing health care delivery models toward value rather than volume-based care. Academic medical centers (AMCs) have the potential to be leaders in this era of delivery reform, but most have yet to display a commitment to delivery innovation on par with their commitment to basic research. This discrepancy is not due to lack of talent or innovative spirit in AMCs, but rather because of a paucity of training in designing and implementing end-user validated interventions and a lack of established pathways for career advancement in clinical innovation outside of research, among other barriers. The panel will explore how AMCs can become leaders in efficient, patient-centered, and commercially sustainable innovation by committing to disruptive changes in training the next generation of clinician-innovators.
