 Over the past several months the Innosight Institute, a think tank that applies Clayton Christensen’s theories of disruptive innovation to the social sector, has been exploring the critical factors necessary for facilitating disruptive innovation in health care in integrated delivery systems to achieve increased quality, reduced cost, and access improvements. The work, which is funded by the Pioneer Portfolio, has already produced five case studies, including recent additions that look at processes at Grand Valley Health Plan, Group Health Cooperative, and Presbyterian Healthcare Services.

To learn how Grand Valley provides a high level of access at a low cost of care, how Group Health is employing a successful Medical Home program and how scarcity became “the mother of invention” atPresbyterian Healthcare Services pleasecheck out the full case studies here.
