The mission of Baptist Health Innovations, a business unit of Baptist Health South Florida, is to engineer the future of healthcare by providing physicians and staff with world-class resources to turn great ideas into transformative products, devices, therapies, hospitals and services. To achieve this, the Institute has developed four innovation pillars that guide our activities. These pillars are intellectual asset management, applied research and education, co-creation and global programs. The achievement of specific goals within each of these pillars will drive healthcare innovation into the next generation and beyond.

The Discovery Pillar

The Discovery Pillar provides Baptist Health innovators access to an array of intellectual asset-related resources.

The Technology Management Pillar

The Technology Management Pillar aids in the commercialization of life science research and inventions generated by Baptist Health physicians and employees by soliciting, formulating and evaluating opportunities that can be developed into products suitable for licensing or establishing spinoff companies.

The Corporate Innovation Pillar

The Corporate Innovation Pillar establishes partnerships with select corporate enterprises aimed at constructing, developing and bringing to practice high-value medical interventions, including devices, apps and therapies.

The Global Innovation Pillar

The Global Innovation Pillar focuses on licensing Baptist Health’s intellectual property and know-how globally. Its two major thrusts are licensing for new hospitals and global technology development.

Baptist Health Innovations offers access to unique resources and tools for system innovators. These tools include product designers, 3D printing technologies and other “ingredients” to foster design thinking and rapid prototyping. They allow inventors to submit ideas for healthcare advancements, including implantable and non-implantable medical devices, technology development, applications linked to devices and other process improvements with a focus on solving unmet needs in the patient experience.

Baptist Health Innovations has formed strategic alliances with industry partners and others to carry out the vision.
