Innovation Lab to Drive Industry-Leading Quality and Patient Experience
By combining industry-leading care quality tools RUSH’s Center for Quality, Safety and Value Analytics has developed with R1’s platform, the Innovation Lab will deliver new and innovative solutions focused on value-based care and advanced analytics.
The Innovation Lab partnership brings together RUSH’s proven ability to develop unique, quality tools that help solve the new and changing standards of care along with R1’s technology-enabled, systematic operations that provide reliable improvements to the patient experience.

“R1 is enabling RUSH’s mission to help improve the quality of care for all patients, be it at RUSH, or elsewhere,” said Dr. Ranga Krishnan, CEO of Rush University Health System. “RUSH has used technology as a part of its quality improvement journey, and these tools have helped us earn distinctions such as 5 stars for quality in the CMS hospital rating system; the #1 rank in the Vizient Quality and Accountability Study; and designation as a nationally recognized Honor Roll hospital by U.S. News and World Report.”
