Oak Valley Health values innovation because it helps us provide you with patient care that is more convenient, more efficient, better coordinated, and smarter. SmartCare means providing the right care to the right patient at the right cost, through the use of innovation. We are developing an innovation hub to help bring our ideas from concept to completion.

In 2016, we launched an Office of Innovation to foster a culture of innovation, support our patient experience strategies, advance quality and performance indicators, and put new innovations into practice.

We celebrate innovation with our annual SmartCare Innovation Fair and regular Innovation Café events where our staff can showcase their work and meet other inspirational people.
