   that work--solutions that improve or redesign an inefficient process to reduce 

   errors and defects. The Goal = Better Outcomes! What is Distinctive Innovation?  

   It’s ‘Applied Creativity!’ A process is ‘distinct’ if it’s not equal to the previous state. 

   Something is ‘innovative’ if it is a new idea, product or process that is useful,

   practical, different and improved. A ‘Distinctive Innovation’ does not necessarily 

   mean a breakthrough invention like the electric light bulb. It’s a dynamic problem-

   solving process that leverages tools such as Six Sigma and appropriate

   technology combined with a individual’s and team’s ingenuity. Our healthcare

   system is transforming into a high performance network to meet the demands of

   our customers--patients and payers. The question is who will lead and who will

   follow. Customer demands (patient and payer), exponential explosion of medical

   knowledge and an unacceptable rate of medical errors are driving forces of

   change. To prosper you need 20/20 forward vision to be the kind of health care

   organization that patients want connected with their care 2020. All organizations

   are capable of delivering a culture of ‘Distinctive Innovations’ that continuously

   improve processes, systems and outcomes that saves time and money but that

   depends on leaders leading. The health system of 2020 will be a consumer-

   centered system that supports care anywhere a patient wants, anytime of the day!
