The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) today launched CHIME Innovation to facilitate the creation and adoption of healthcare technology innovation and to improve health and care globally. The launch marks the completion of the buildout of the Intermountain and CHIME Innovation Center powered by Sirius Healthcare within the Kem C. Gardner Intermountain Transformation Center in Murray, Utah.
CHIME Innovation Center Overview
CHIME Innovation will serve as an educational hub and an innovation facilitator for the health IT and innovation community. CHIME Innovation will offer workshops, summits, events focused on the intersection between CIOs and chief innovation officers, and opportunities for CHIME members to share their innovation success stories. The first workshop, “Developing an Innovation Framework,” will be March 17-18 at the Intermountain and CHIME Innovation Center. Taught by faculty from CHIME Innovation and Intermountain Healthcare, the workshop will introduce concepts that establish a common language and toolset for innovation. The event, which is part of the CHIME Executive Education Series, will include networking, small group exercises, and case studies.
