This report discusses the challenges and opportunities associated with transferring fourteen innovations introduced by medical professionals from India across healthcare systems and markets to be adopted by partners in the United States.
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) asked ACCESS Health International to identify and invite innovators from India to be a part of the Global Lab for Health. The Global Lab assembles teams and tools to identify high value innovations that radically reduce cost and improve access to healthcare, with a focus on innovations that may be transferrable to the United States. ACCESS Health identified promising innovators in India and connected them with potential adopters in the US and around the globe.
ACCESS Health International concluded that the Global Lab has a strong network with partners in the United States and can play an important role in matching partners and stimulating collaborations. The Global Lab can identify areas where partners face challenges, must change current practice, and can benefit from high quality and low cost solutions from other countries.
