The Your Big Idea Platform, powered by the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation, enables crowdsourcing for ideas and solutions -- enabling Penn Medicine employees to collaborate across departments, mobilize teams around projects, and turn ideas into action to change the way we deliver care.
Innovation challenges are posted to the platform on an ongoing basis. Challenges come in a variety of forms and address a number of different topic areas including (but not limited to!) patient experience, cost savings, connected health, workplace wellness, medical education, and more.
Once a challenge is posted, faculty, staff and students can participate by submitting an idea, and commenting and rating ideas submitted by their colleagues. After the submission period closes, ideas and comments generated through the website are reviewed by the challenge committee, and next steps are decided and announced.
In the end, challenge teams walk away with innovative ideas and solutions that enable them to turn ideas into action. To learn more about current and completed challenges, click here.
