We gather initiatives from multiple sources, both internal and external, using our innovation focus areas as guard rails for innovation efforts at OSF. We source these ideas through programs, research, community need and ideas proposed by external partners and collaborators.
We connect these initiatives and ideas with the right innovation resources:
We Team Up with Other Innovators to Test Solutions
We understand the value of fresh perspectives, so we seek to work with innovators outside our walls. OSF partners with start-ups, corporations, universities and other hospitals to maximize their solutions using existing assets.
We Make Smart Investments
OSF Ventures invests financially and operationally in opportunities that will improve patient outcomes, enhance patient experience and reduce the cost of health care. We believe in not only investing financially, but also strategically through comprehensive collaboration.
