Our Goal

 
InnovationWell The overarching theme of the Communities program is a Integrating Knowledge Across the Life Science Product Life Cycle with the goal of achieving improved outcomes in healthcare product development & delivery, reducing costs and improving productivity and quality through cross-disciplinary and cross-organisational use of innovative technologies, knowledge-based strategies and supporting integrated and semantic-based informatics systems.

Our program explores current best knowledge-based strategies, practices and supporting solutions in the life science & healthcare industry that enable innovation, effectiveness and success in the competitive market.

We address issues that include:
How can existing knowledge and intellectual property be more effectively deployed into new business situations?
How do we enhance the organizational appreciation and use of drug safety knowledge throughout product development and clinical use?
How do we protect patient safety against the delivery of drugs through illegal distribution channels?
What are the novel and effective approaches that are contributing to progress in drug discovery and development innovation?
What is the current impact of new advances in chemistry and biology (biomarkers, toxicology, proteomics, toxicogenomics, metabolomics, etc.) on drug development?
What practices can enable an organisation to maximise its human capital and knowledge potential in its preparation for decisions it makes in the future?
How do we assess, reduce the risk and increase the confidence associated with a marketed product?
How should we manage our technologies and knowledge around the product life cycle to maximise their value in the market place?
What new knowledge management approaches offer greater productivity for the individual worker? For the team? For collaborators and partners? For communities of interest and practice?
How should we classify our knowledge better semantically so that we may retrieve more of what we know, is known or to determine what is not known?
What new approaches for managing knowledge are being created by the increasingly electronic nature of information capture, management and collaboration? What are the legal and regulatory risks and how do we manage them?
How do the new standards and initiatives allowing the improved exchange and combination of data between different systems and domains create opportunities for improved access to knowledge?
How can improved knowledge management help to reduce the high cost of clinical trials and patient recruitment? 14. How do we increase the effectiveness of knowledge-supported healthcare delivery? 

InnovationWell is a member-based network and Community of Practice (CoP) of experts, researchers and executives with a common interest in innovation and knowledge management in the pharmaceutical, life science and healthcare sectors and in delivering knowledge-based solutions and services in areas of unmet need.

The InnovationWell Community’s program has the goal of achieving improved patient safety, enhancing outcomes in healthcare product development & delivery, reducing costs and improving productivity and quality through cross-disciplinary and cross-organisational use of innovative technologies, knowledge-based strategies and supporting integrated and semantic-based informatics systems.
