Health & Technology Innovation Center

Technology surrounds and connects us

Technology plays a vital role in the rapidly changing world of health care, enabling us to provide expert care for the community that we serve. To meet the health care challenges of today and tomorrow we have established the Health & Technology Innovation Center at Christiana Care. The Innovation Center collaborates with staff and patient advisers to create unique solutions for delivering the best possible care for our neighbors.

What we do

The Innovation Center has a portfolio of over 30 custom built applications today. Each application started as a project initiated because of a unique opportunity – an idea from a member of the Christiana Care team to introduce improvements and efficiencies in a way not offered commercially.

We are committed to building these unique, novel, value added innovations and assess every application for intellectual property protection and the potential for Christiana Care to explore commercialization. If a commercially available solution exists, in whole or in part, the Innovation Center would not build a comparable solution. If a solution becomes available, we would encourage migration to the vendor product.

Who we are

Within the Innovation Center, we have a dedicated team of award winning designers, developers, and analysts who are available to assist Christiana Care staff with any stage of the idea lifecycle. Staff are skilled in a multitude of disciplines including business process mapping, sketching and wire framing prototypes, graphic design, and software development.
