Factors Affecting the Equitable Development of Healthcare Innovation, A Retrospective Analysis


Healthcare innovation has the potential to transform patient care delivery and address significant public health challenges. However, technological innovations in medicine are met with additional economic, regulatory, and political barriers to entry into healthcare systems. These hurdles tend to be particularly significant in under-resourced settings, exacerbating disparities in access to and adoption of emerging healthcare technologies. By delving into the historical evolution of health innovation, this study aims to define key factors that contribute to their successful adoption. Specifically, this study analyzes the developmental success factors of the healthcare intervention’s cataloged in the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Innovations Exchange Database. By uncovering these dynamics, these findings are anticipated to inform policymakers, healthcare providers, and industry stakeholders to develop more targeted strategies that foster the successful integration of healthcare innovation in order to more broadly address key public health challenges.
