This month on the Evidence-to-Impact Podcast, we explored innovations in healthcare. We dive into how we can get more value out of the country's healthcare system without sacrificing the quality of care as well as lowering barriers for underserved populations.
We spoke to Dr. Doug Jacobs, M.D., M.P.H., chief medical officer and chief innovation officer in the Office of the Secretary at the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, and Meg Small, director of social innovation and assistant research professor at the Penn State Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, about what it means to have a healthcare system that pays for value, promotes health equity and addresses the social determinants of health; measuring the success of healthcare innovation; healthcare innovations involving mobile technology; and other improvements to expanding access while reducing healthcare costs.
