Innovation Intake and Evaluation Process

Today’s healthcare environment is experiencing an exponential increase in volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.

To continue to differentiate and outpace this accelerating environment of transformation, innovation is an imperative for incumbents to embrace. The convergence of a strong internal appetite to innovate at HHC, in addition to the increasing interest from outside innovative companies to partner, is affording us opportunities for new value capture. The vision of HHC’s evolving innovation ecosystem and operating model is to leverage our assets to accelerate these opportunities to impact.
