Innovation 90

Do you struggle with innovation?

Is getting buy-in of your idea difficult? Did your last innovation effort fail? Is it time to show quantifiable results? Do you face implementation obstacles? Do you need to overcome change resistance? Do you feel lost in the innovation wilderness?

Innovation 90 is designed for health care

The Innovation 90 program designed in collaboration with the American Hospital Association uses a proven methodology supported by experienced innovation coaches to guide your team step by step over 90 days to get buy in, strip out risk, and deliver results.

  • Redesign care delivery
  • Improve patient experience
  • Develop digital solutions
  • Improve quality and value
  • Tackle population health challenges
  • Respond to new payment models

If you work with new health care ideas, you need Innovation 90.

What People Achieved With Innovation 90:


"We've used LEAN, CQI, adaptive design and other process improvement tools, but Innovation 90 is different. We worked on an actual problem, built a prototype, and prepared for feedback during the Bootcamp. Then we got buy-in over the next 90 days as we systematically improved our prototypes. There's no other scalable process like it."

  • St. Luke's improved patient care transitions across the acute to home care continuum to reduce readmissions
  • CoxHealth developed an Urgent Care "Save My Spot" mobile application to reduce patient wait times and balance staff workloads
  • Naples improved the accuracy of respiratory therapy consults reducing reassessments
  • St. Barnabas redesigned ED patient admission flow and implemented strategies for early identification and assessment of imminent risks for violence
  • University of Rochester Medical Center consolidated pathology labs to reduce costs, decrease processing time, and increase workforce engagement

Here's how Innovation 90 Works

  1. Attend Bootcamp

    Define the problem, craft a solution, build an initial prototype and leave with a 90-day Action Plan.

  2. Experiment & Learn

    Over the next 90 days under the guidance of a Master Coach, you will collect stakeholder feedback, revise your prototype and create an MVP to learn what's required to deliver results.

  3. Overcome Objections

    Create a clear and compelling pitch using the Innovation 90 Framework to overcome objections when you present results to decision makers.


What makes Innovation 90 so different?

How much are failed innovation projects costing you? How many potential ideas get killed before they have a chance? How many of your projects don't meet goals? How many people give up?

A lack of human-centric design may already be costing you a great deal. If you're wondering who in your organization should come to the workshop, it's best to bring a cross-functional team of people. This will ensure alignment on the problem, collaboration on the solution, and agreement on the 90-day Action Plan.
