Global Innovators Network

Global Innovators Network

We are a global network of leaders from academia, industry, government, NGOs, philanthropy, and faith-based organizations who are collaborating on best practices in leadership of innovation. Spawned to meet the global needs of innovators in healthcare and patient safety, our work has expanded to multiple sectors with a focus on mentorship and development of great leaders. There is no specific commercial purpose of this website and no required financial relationship between the collaborators. The information available through this website is entirely free.
Global Patient Safety Forum

The GPSF is a convening alliance with a mission to save lives, save money, and build value in the community it serves.  The Forum was expressly founded to make available important content that the collaborators want to share more broadly. This website is not intended to compete with any other initiative and will meet its objectives if collaborators and those interested in the topics share the information with their communities. There is no financial requirement of users of the site.

Collaboration Best Practices

The critical stakeholders who must weigh in on rapid response teams for crises in healthcare are Industry, Government, Non-government Organizations, Academia, and Philanthropy. Often they are competitors and have numerous conflicts of interest, however they must work together to drive life-saving innovations.

A major area of focus of our group will be the issue of supplier funded research with providers and academia. We will take a systematic approach to frameworks that provide a "safe harbor" for supplier funded research and development.

The Forum has ongoing global research and development activities that address turning barriers into accelerators at the supplier-provider interface and at the provider-purchaser interface.

The interface areas between trading partners along the healthcare supply chain are major barriers to patient safety innovations, however when issues such as conflicts of interest are dealt with using best practices, patient safety can be dramatically improved.
