Innovation Day To Showcase Ideas for Patient Care

Mark your calendars — on Monday, March 28, from 10 a.m.-noon in Harvey Morse Auditorium, the MD/RN Patient Experience Innovation Challenge will host Innovation Day, the second event of the Innovation Challenge.

Since Pitch Day in November, 10 semifinalist teams have been testing, developing and refining their innovative ideas to improve patient care through a Grand Slam Workshop Series. External industry and internal Cedars-Sinai mentors coached the teams on prototyping, user experience and crafting a successful pitch.

The 10 teams will pitch their detailed prototypes and user feedback to the panel of executive judges for the chance to advance to the final round.

On Innovation Day, the panel will select six teams to move onto the finals. Each panelist will also select a team to sponsor during this final phase.


The teams in the innovation challenge recently went through a workshop series, during which mentors from Cedars-Sinai and industry coached them on prototyping, user experience and crafting a successful pitch.
