Innovation Digest – May 2021 Vol. 2

If we are truly dedicated to the notion that science leads, we must accelerate the pace at which science translates to practice. COVID taught us that hard lesson, and also showed us ways to achieve nimbleness. We also must recalibrate what science measures and investigates. New and inquisitive research must look at our biological, geographical, and socio-economic differences, and challenge status quo systems to deliver value from the perspective of individuals and families who experience both episodic and life-altering health conditions. It’s painstaking work, but it is essential if we hope to define and deliver world-class care, equitably, to all.
