Company Expands Learning Partnerships to Further Innovation in Healthcare, Strengthen Connection to Consumers at Home
ROSEVILLE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 2, 2015 — Intel-GE Care Innovations™ today announced a partnership with Xavier University’s Center for Innovation to test and analyze health peripherals and mobile applications that are intended to help people manage their health, including chronic conditions. The partnership will provide Care Innovations with a permanent testing lab within the Center’s facilities that will help generate new insights about the best technologies and care plans to connect patient data from the home to clinicians, bridging the gaps that exist between patient visits. Additionally, Care Innovations will work with Xavier University to conduct a series of Innovation Summits for Xavier’s healthcare executive alumni to help them apply innovation practices at their organizations.
“As the healthcare industry shifts and requires more patient engagement, we must stay ahead of the curve in knowing what peripherals and apps are reliable in helping patients manage their health from the comfort of their homes,” said Sean Slovenski, Chief Executive Officer of Care Innovations. “The home is a critical component that is often overlooked in population health programs. Most clinicians rely on limited or inaccurate patient data that doesn’t encompass the daily life of a patient. By incorporating data from the home, along with observations from clinical visits, clinicians will be better equipped to develop care plans that help patients succeed in better managing their conditions.”
Care Innovations will also work with the Center for Innovation on hosting a series of events on various topics to help Xavier University’s healthcare executive alumni learn more about innovation. These Innovation Summits will feature expert speakers and case studies to help attendees formulate plans that will push their organizations to innovate and improve our healthcare system.
“Care Innovations’ proven expertise in patient engagement and connecting the care continuum to the home create a rare opportunity for us,” said Shawn Nason, Chief Innovation Officer of Xavier University and Director for the Center for Innovation. “We are both firm believers in innovating to improve our society and want to transfer the years of knowledge and experience from Care Innovations to our alumni.”
