With many exciting opportunities, events and discussions posted in the communities this week, there are plenty of places to offer insight:
- Medical Innovation with / within Large Corporations
Clinical Innovation Day featured discussions and presentations of ways people and technology are transforming care at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. GHDonline sat in on a session in which executives from Wal-mart, Xerox, Johnson&Johnson, and Phillips discussed medical innovation within very large organizations. Share your thoughts on ways to facilitate innovation in large, well-established institutions with our Innovating Health Care Delivery community.

Discuss the hidden monetary and safety costs of applying observation status to patients with our Costs of Care community.
