Posted Oct 23, 2021 from

Learn how the 3 pillars of The Novation Dynamic: Innovation, Renovation, and Exnovation, work together to drive change in complex healthcare organizations.

Michael Ackerman, director of the Master in Healthcare Innovation Program at The Ohio State University, believes that every innovation program must do three things in tandem:

  1. Innovation – filling gaps where no solution currently exists, in a way that adds value
  2. Renovation – quality improvement and process improvement
  3. Exnovation – removing functions that no longer add value; also known as de-implementation

When practiced together, and ideally led by different teams within the organization, the 3 pillars of The Novation Dynamic help us overcome the notorious friction that has slowed healthcare innovation for too long
