WHAT IS INNOVATION DAY?
Started in 2008, University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital recognized the opportunity to create a formal program for improving pediatric care. With the intent of harboring innovation and developing employee ideas on improving pediatric care, the First Annual Pediatric Innovation Day was developed. This mission was further enhanced in 2013 with the generous support of the Belcher and Weir families to create the Belcher-Weir Families Pediatric Innovation Day.
Now in its 12th year and growing stronger every year, Pediatrics & Women’s Health Innovation Day has grown to include a keynote from a nationally renowned speaker, pitches from some of the most cutting edge startups, and recognition of the innovators within Pediatrics and Women’s Health that are committed to advancing patient care to new limits.
The top three submissions will receive resources to further develop, protect, commercialize and implement their idea and the opportunity to present their idea at the 12th Annual Belcher-Weir Family Pediatric Innovation Day on March 4th. Ideas can be submitted which are in any level of development, and do not need to be long, complex or fully developed. All submitted ideas will be reviewed by UH Ventures and our hospital leaders and the top ideas will be awarded with funds to help further develop the proposed idea.
