What Happens at the Center

The focal point and “home” for innovation at Independence is the Center for Health Care Innovation, a 5,000-square-foot space designed to inspire creative thinking and facilitate open communication. The Center serves as a collaborative, distraction-free workspace where participants can:

  • Shift brainstorming into high gear
  • Freely share ideas no matter their role in their organization
  • Come in with a challenge and walk out with a solution
  • Learn techniques and behaviors they can use every day to foster a culture of innovation

The Innovation Center’s facilitators lead brainstorming sessions that help groups and individuals unlock their creativity and bridge the gap between problems and solutions. The sessions create a collaborative environment that fosters innovation and idea-sharing and provides participants with tools to keep the momentum going and take ideas further toward implementation.
