Adventist Health (Roseville, Calif.). Adventist Health serves as a beacon for healthcare innovation in the community across its 28 hospital sites, 90 rural clinics and 140 other locations. The system serves over 2 million patients every year, with one in three earning less than $25,000 every year. Adventist Health has taken steps to foster a culture of innovation and infrastructure, promoting a progressive mindset and creating an environment of trust that encourages constant learning, assessing and improving. The system also actively partners with community leaders to fill gaps in the community. It heavily invests in patient safety and nursing staff development, support and career advancement opportunities. For instance, Adventist Health White Memorial in Los Angeles uses artificial intelligence to improve patient safety and care in real time, using AI to support clinical decision making, improve outcomes and improve sepsis compliance. Similarly, Adventist Health Glendale has incorporated KATE AI software into the nursing triage EHR to assist in identifying early sepsis symptoms. Adventist Health also supports its nursing department using real-time AI to assess patients based on vital signs, medical history and other relevant data.
Banner Health (Phoenix). Innovation initiatives at Banner Health primarily focus on making healthcare easier so life can be better for those it serves. The Banner Innovation Group was formed in 2019. Their approach involves testing new tools first on a small scale to gauge their potential value to the organization and their potential to scale more broadly. Banner’s long-term strategy involves improving customer experience via the “digital front door” to provide a modern, seamless experience across customers’ web, smartphone, telephone and in-person interactions with the system. One instance of this is a Smart Waitlist, which offers earlier imaging appointment times via text, based on patient acuity – a program which has helped to reduce no-shows, grow referral-to-appointment conversion and improve cancellation backfilling. Banner now plans to scale this model to other facilities. Other initiatives include an emergency department discharge bot, an AI-based symptom checker, a suite of digital therapeutics, a text-the-CEO program, and more. To continue identifying new technology tools to test, Banner has established multi-year partnerships with promising technology companies that align with its overall strategic direction.
