In today’s fast paced and constantly changing healthcare market, innovative solutions are critical to long term care transformation.

For an executive team, embracing innovation requires monitoring risk closely, being open to failure, encouraging smart experimentation, and bringing a disciplined approach to outcome measurement. Finance executives play a critical role and should be directly engaged in this innovation imperative to ensure that the organization has discipline around the questions of when and where to invest.
