      Purpose/Objectives: Healthcare innovation ecosystems are interacting groups of healthcare delivery and funding organizations, capital providers, innovation accelerators and incubators and a variety of general and specialized service providers that together enable healthcare innovation to grow and flourish. In our global work, including Canada, we have assisted various countries and clients to form and assess the maturity of their innovation ecosystems. We will describe an Healthcare Innovation Ecosystem framework that helps stakeholders understand their own healthcare innovation ecosystem and will present our findings about healthcare innovation ecosystems in different parts of the world Session participants will understand: How to assess the maturity of the healthcare innovation ecosystems of which they are a part Will understand practices in healthcare innovation ecosystems from other best practice countries and jurisdictions Will understand how to interact with and leverage their healthcare innovation ecosystem to achieve their personal and organizational goals

      Methodology/Approach: Using the framework illustrated below, we have evaluated healthcare innovation ecosystems in Scandinavia, Canada and United States of America and for these examples, have assessed the number of interacting parts, the extent of their connectedness and the results that they produce.<img alt="diagram1.jpg" annotation="" id="image://38" src="" title="diagram1.jpg" />

      Finding/Results: In the US case, the healthcare innovation ecosystem was very well developed, with considerable effort put into innovation enculturation, resources dedicated to growing the cluster of interacting innovation programs, business support services, some support for early stage and seed stage commercialization and demonstrated financial and health system outcomes. In the Scandinavian case, the healthcare innovation ecosystem was well developed, with large sovereign support for early stage and seed stage commercialization, but had a gap in infrastructure resources to act as a catalyst for increased innovation. In both Canadian cases, healthcare innovation ecosystems are emerging and require ecosystem maturation and specific catalysts in order to achieve maturity, connectivity and outcomes

      Conclusion/Implications/Recommendations: Different healthcare innovation ecosystems have different objectives, ranging from job creation to health system outcomes to tax growth. The IBM Healthcare Innovation Ecosystem Assessment Methodology has been applied in different global experiences and is proving to be a useful method for understand the baseline metrics of the ecosystem, gaps in maturity and how to prioritize efforts to grow and nurture the healthcare innovation ecosystem to achieve its goals

      140 Character Summary: Learn how healthcare innovation ecosystems assess their maturity and identify gaps that, when filled, enable healthcare innovation to grow and flourish.
