  • Stanford's Biodesign Innovation program: Teaching opportunities for value-driven innovation in surgery. Surgery Augustin, D. A., Yock, C. A., Wall, J., Lucian, L., Krummel, T., Pietzsch, J. B., Azagury, D. E. 2019


    The Stanford Biodesign Innovation process, which identifies meaningful clinical needs, develops solutions to meet those needs, and plans for subsequent implementation in clinical practice, is an effective training approach for new generations of healthcare innovators. Continued success of this process hinges on its evolution in response to changes in healthcare delivery and an ever-increasing demand for economically viable solutions. In this article, we provide perspective on opportunities for value-driven innovation in surgery and relate these to value-related teaching elements currently integrated in the Stanford Biodesign process.
