The article, Five Health Care Innovations Producing Positive Results for Patients, by NANCY CROTTI states,

“With the cost of health care a major concern for employers and consumers, the need for greater effectiveness and efficiency in the health care industry is paramount. Twin Cities health care systems and businesses recently introduced innovative efforts that are producing good results for patients.

Here are some examples of their breakthrough work:

When Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) set out to achieve health equity for its patients, officials discovered that meeting one basic need could make a big difference for patients’ health and the system’s bottom line.

In April 2015, HCMC launched Upstream Health Innovations with a $2.5 million grant from the United Health Foundation to discern and excise the barriers to serving patients’ health needs. The initiative applies a methodology known as human-centered design, which, in this case, emphasizes empathy and collaboration among patients, front-line staff and the community in problem-solving.

In interviews with Upstream Health staff, patients listed numerous challenges to their health, from lack of basics like food and child care to difficulty understanding doctors’ orders to feeling unimportant to health care providers. Challenges with transportation to and from non-emergency medical appointments came up again and again, according to Susan Jepson, vice president of Upstream Health and a veteran of both UnitedHealth Group and U.S. Bank.”
