The Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation spans the University of Pennsylvania Health System and the Perelman School of Medicine and aims to advance their missions through the disciplined creation, evaluation, and implementation of change. In the end, our goal is to improve the health and health care of patients and populations by supporting the identification of problems and the developing and testing of solutions. We do so by supporting people who have ideas, and supporting the testing of those ideas on their way toward potential implementation.
