The Veale Initiative for Health Care Innovation

Accelerating Transformational Change Where It’s Needed Most

The Veale Initiative for Health Care Innovation led by University Hospitals aims to identify, clarify and prioritize the most pressing problems facing the healthcare industry, then test and scale state-of-the-art solutions. Built on a unique collaboration among UH Ventures, the Office of Strategy & Innovation, the Office of Clinical Transformation, and the Department of Operational Effectiveness, this initiative represents a first-of-its-kind model for making healthcare systems safer and more cost effective.
