The Healthcare Innovation Program (HIP) is an interactive network among members of the Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) that provides information, resources, and community connectivity to support and enhance innovation in healthcare research, education, and service. Key topics include quality, cost and access to health services across the contexts of providers, payers, and recipients.
Presently, over 1,700 faculty, staff and students at Emory, Georgia Tech, Morehouse, and Georgia State University are engaged in healthcare innovation activities with ACTSI partners, including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), Grady Health System, the Atlanta VAMC, Kaiser-Permanente, the CDC, and the American Cancer Society. These activities involve more than 250 sponsored research projects (>$60M), 30 educational offerings, and 50 outreach/service programs, which together address most major topics in healthcare services.
The Healthcare Innovation Program is supported by the ACTSI and the Emory University Woodruff Health Sciences Center.
