University sponsored with a combination of students, faculty and academic researchers. The focus is a new area of discovery. The outcomes are research publications and the advancement of scientific principles. Examples of A-IA:
Digital health technology discoveries that advance:
Improved healthcare access with lower costs (e.g., rural, remote communities)
Addressing social determinants of healthcare (SDOH)
Artificial Intelligence/NLP bias reduction
Organizational Innovation Accelerators (O-IA)
Sponsored by organizations to infuse a new and/or enhancement management style to maximize performance that will increase ROI. Within the O-IA, participants learn, practice and master entrepreneurial spirit-driven working styles. This may be challenging internally. Examples of O-IA:
Scrum teams and agile project management leadership
Internal shark tank competitions
Cross-functional project teams facilitating hybrid organizational departments/divisions/areas creation
Multiple stakeholders pursuing community redevelopment in a unified approach
For early-stage start-ups that have proven market validation. The GA is for mentoring/coaching their business plan and paths to investments. Examples of GA:
Improved literacy for manufacturing plants’ production employees: AI powered in-the-moment device to ensure comprehension of safety guidelines and manuals. Use case demonstrated improved safety and OSHA operating standards. Employees reported higher levels of on-the-job satisfaction leading to retention.
Per-diem nurse scheduling efficiency and cost reduction: Per-diem nurse database with pre-qualifications/licenses/ certifications available to nurse manager/CMO/HR to identify available and eligible per-diem nurses within minutes. Reduces current time to find replacement staff, smoother on-the-floor nurse management, higher levels of patient care (less ‘short-handed’ conditions).
