An innovation is defined as a new idea that can be translated into service that creates value (either by improving consumer outcomes or lowering costs). For executives of provider organizations, choosing from the long list of innovations available can be daunting. As a result, OPEN MINDS surveyed executives of provider organizations to understand what program and treatment innovations are gaining the most traction in the field and what innovations can help organizations gain competitive advantage.
The survey looks at program innovations—telehealth, colocation, hospital or ER diversion programs, etc.—and treatment innovations—medication assisted treatment for addiction, peer support specialists, and eCBT, etc. It explores trends in adoption compared to 2017, by market, and by organizational size.
