Innovation is defined as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs. The Mercy Innovation Center provides access to tools and expertise that aid in the discovery of better solutions for our patients & guests, physicians, staff and hopefully the entire health care system.
Established in February 2014, the Mercy Innovation Center (MIC) was developed to support the transformation of the health care system by redesigning our delivery model and enhancing the Mercy Experience. MIC serves to strengthen the already lively culture of innovation that exists at Mercy and to accelerate the creative process. We provide members of the Mercy Family access to resources and expertise that include:
- Observation opportunities
- Creative spaces for ideation
- Engineering services for prototyping
- Simulation environments / Simulation labs
- Project piloting
- Business plan development
- Process improvement/redesign
MIC operating principle is simple – no idea is too big or too small, as long as it adds value to those we serve.
