Innovation at work

Take a look at how we’re leading change in healthcare.

Training & Innovation Challenges

  • Innovation Training: In partnership with ?What If! Innovation, we have trained over 600 IBC employees in innovation techniques. These trainees are a corps of “innovation inventors” who demonstrate the behaviors and techniques of innovation within the company.
  • Innovation Sessions: We host Innovation Sessions of cross-functional teams to create and implement solutions to specific issues. We have completed 39 sessions and are currently implementing 33 solutions including:
    • The Live Fearless Game Show on the Independence Express — a fun and educational way for community members to learn about the effects of the Affordable Care Act
    • Digicard — a tool that uses our membership card to better engage new members in the management of their health.
