The Care Innovation Station is a program formed by the Nursing Resource and Innovation Council in partnership with the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children’s National Health System.
The Care Innovation Station committee (consisting of the Nursing Innovation Council and a panel of business advisors) screen the ideas on a monthly basis to look for opportunities to bring innovative pediatric products and creative processes to our patients and their families.
All innovations to improve healthcare for children are in the scope. We are particularly interested in some specific areas like such as medical devices, apps, software, and process improvement.
During the pilot rollout, the Care Innovation Station is open to anyone at Children’s National and our patients and their families. Anyone can pitch in with ideas for technological innovations and process improvement models.
Depending on the number of submissions that lend themselves to future follow-ups, we plan to establish a prize competition. Please stay tuned. At Children’s National, we aim at including our staff, patients and families in the process of innovation to improve children’s health.
