Supporting Our Innovators

Here are some examples of how we’re working with and supporting our Innovators.

Creation of an On-Demand Fulfillment System

Innovation: An interventional tool, the ABCs of Prescription Drug Management, was created as a patient educational tool on the proper use/storage/disposal of controlled medications, including opioids.

How We Helped:

  • Facilitated rework of graphics for broader PCP use to adults and adolescents.
  • Performed competitive analyses to lend guidance to pricing of pamphlets.
  • Co-created a fulfillment system where medical providers can go online and order these educational pamphlets, pay with a credit card/internal shortcode, and have them shipped directly to their offices.
  • Working with Team to promote intervention to key target audiences.

Facilitated Collaborative Resource Connections

Innovation: This innovation is a nursing/legal collaborative which provides content related to interacting with and identifying survivors of human trafficking within healthcare and social service settings within a legal/policy perspective.  It has resulted in a compilation of content which now needs developed into a website, inclusive of an e-learning module that can provide CE’s.

How We Helped:

  • Identified Instructional Designer resources on campus.
  • Connected Innovators to School of Public Health Instructional Designer which has resulted in a new collaboration with them on this e-learning module.
  • Prepared RFQ’s and solicited bids for website development and video services needed to get this website built and launched.
  • Participating with Team in meetings with developers and videographiers.
