Come hear how BCRISP promotes intelligent failure and creates a safe culture that advances growth and innovation; hospital leaders will share specific insights on their BCRISP pilots and other care redesign initiatives.

ABOUT THE SESSION

Launched in 2013 and currently in its 7th cohort, the Brigham Care Redesign Incubator and Startup Program (BCRISP) adapts a venture capital approach to clinical care redesign, tapping our 4000+ BWH expert clinicians and researchers for ideas to improve care and reduce costs. BCRISP improves patient care by investing in innovative proposals from frontline clinicians and empowering our caregivers to be proactive agents of change. Over 5 years of BCRISP innovations have delivered exceptional experiences and clinical value, saved $1.8 million per year in total medical expense and generated $1.4 million per year in improved financial performance for Brigham Health. Our panelists will share how BCRISP promotes intelligent failure and creates a safe culture that advances growth and innovation with specific insights from their BCRISP pilots and other care redesign initiatives.
