Ochsner Innovation Stage

Healthcare across the United States continues to experience monumental change. Increased transparency, expanded access to information, evolving technology and other industry pressures are fundamentally altering the healthcare landscape. Consumers of healthcare feel empowered, reacting to the desire and need for on-demand access with higher expectations and interest in engaging in their own health and wellness.

Leaders of health systems and medical groups across the country are shifting from the traditional models of care and developing new ways to implement effective technology to improve patient experience, cost effectiveness and outcomes so patients can live more healthy and productive lives.

Named a 2018 recipient of both the HIMSS Davies Award and the Microsoft Corp.’s Health Innovation Awards – innovationOchsner, or iO, is an innovation lab using technology and data to create precision-focused, patient-centered solutions in the areas of digital health, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and precision medicine. Hypertension and diabetes, some of this region’s most pressing healthcare challenges, are being tackled through iO’s Digital Medicine Programs.
