Welcome

to the Innovation Institute

The Innovation Institute is an organization focused on transforming healthcare through the development of innovative new medical products, services, and ideas. The Institute is an incubator that helps nurture ideas and brings them to market to improve care delivery, eliminate waste, or improve and extend human life.

Think of the Innovation Institute as a type of “Shark Tank” only a lot friendlier. At The Innovation Institute we evaluate inventor’s ideas and incubate them. We determine the potential for the idea, obtain patents, develop prototypes, and navigate the best way to take the idea to market as a new product, license agreement, or even a new company.

Case Study: Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital

TKA’s in-sourced, centralized delivery model came to the rescue at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital in early 2014.

TKA’s in-sourced, centralized delivery model came to the rescue at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital in early 2014. When the Allura Xper FD10 Electro Physiology Lab at the Hospital experienced a malfunction, the in-house TKA technicians with access to the system were able to successfully view error logs and troubleshoot the issue. The technicians found that the chiller contained a small leak, which pulled air into the pump, causing it to lose prime. They determined this leak as the source of the error.

The technicians called the equipment manufacturer to obtain a quote for a new chiller. The replacement chiller was estimated to cost $32,111.51, plus shipping costs from Germany.
