What is a breakthrough opportunity?

Breakthrough Opportunity: n. An emerging idea for a different way that technologies, care delivery processes, organizational models, incentives, or policies could, if scaled, bring about societal-level change, reduce costs, and improve quality.

For example...

  • Leveraging patient-collected data on activity levels, mood, treatment adherence, etc. to develop a monitoring and early-warning system for providers to recommend targeted, timely, interventions.
  • A policy that establishes financial incentives for virtual visits, stimulating innovation and adoption of this practice and allowing patients to more easily consult with specialists and manage their care.
