Healthcare innovation summit tours School of Nursing

Participants in a national innovation summit recently toured School of Nursing facilities to discover how the school models innovation and collaboration.

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (more commonly referred to as CHIME) is a group that brings together chief innovation officers and digital executives from across the United States to collaboratively solve healthcare problems. Once a year, the organization meets for an Innovation Summit; this year’s was hosted by St. Luke’s Health System in Boise on Sept. 22-23.

The first day of the summit, School of Nursing Divisional Dean Shelle Poole spoke on a panel discussion entitled “Defining Innovation for Your Own Organization.”

The second day, summit participants received a guided tour of the School of Nursing that highlighted its research, advancements and partnerships with local healthcare systems.

“The field of nursing has been through many challenges in recent years, yet our team decided to ‘rise together’ to meet them head on,” said Poole. “It is so fun to share the collective hard work of our team with the community, and we appreciate CHIME’s interest in our school.”
