PRINCIPLES of iSPI
Quality of care increases with investments in innovation, and innovation has the potential of revolutionizing healthcare, for the benefit of patients and of the whole healthcare system. This is particularly true in the field of pediatrics, as children are the citizens of the future. Though it may overlap with research, innovation has its own methodology, which is under-recognized in healthcare. Patients’ needs, as well as clinical and organizational needs may be addressed with powerful ideas that often remain unexplored.
