Introduction to innovation as a concept, leading theories and applications to healthcare. First in a series of four courses for the Healthcare Innovation certificate program. Defines the concept of innovation within the first week, exposes students to leading innovation theorists (e.g., Christensen, Drucker, Rogers and von Hippel). Each theorist has a different approach and perspective on innovation. Students should be able to compare and contrast the key theorists, their perspectives and identify real life situations (e.g., case studies) that can be supported (and not supported) by the concepts within these theories. While these theorists are not healthcare professionals, their theories have been used to explain phenomenon in the healthcare industry. Beyond the theoretical and conceptual understanding of innovation, students will demonstrate an understanding of how to apply these theories to real life use cases. Emphasizes the relationship between innovation and evidence-based practice.
