BJC Health System, Inc. Key Developments

BJC Healthcare and Washington University School of Medicine Establish Health Systems Innovation Lab

BJC HealthCare and Washington University School of Medicine are partnering to launch the Health Systems Innovation Lab, an effort aimed at developing innovative ways to deliver care and improve people's health. Cross-disciplinary in nature, the lab will bring together clinicians, patients, researchers, public health experts and private industry to find solutions to problems that prevent patients from receiving optimal care. BJC HealthCare will provide $20 million over the next 10 years to support the lab. Among the lab's goals are investigating how new technology can best be used, and determining how to streamline care to make it more efficient. The lab's 14-member governing board will be chaired by David H. Perlmutter, MD, executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of Washington University School of Medicine, and by Steve Lipstein, CEO of BJC HealthCare. Washington University and BJC HealthCare have chosen Thomas M. Maddox, MD, to lead the lab. A search committee selected Maddox because of his background as the national director for the Veterans Affairs Health System's Clinical Assessment, Reporting and Tracking Cardiac Quality Program, which oversees quality, safety and value for all 79 cardiac catheterization laboratories in the VA health-care system, and his research expertise in cardiology. The lab's partners will include the BJC HealthCare Center for Clinical Excellence and Washington University's Center for Biomedical Informatics, the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, and the Institute for Public Health.
