To achieve high-value care, health systems and organizations must reorient planning, research and care delivery towards a longer-term and proactive outlook. While the focus of health care innovation is often on technological innovation, the paper argues that in order to achieve more strategic decision-making, not only technological advances, but also innovation in processes and integration of research, practice and technology are needed. To support this, examples are provided of how an integrated payer-provider health care organization in Israel, Clalit Heath Services, is assimilating research, technology and clinical practice to more effectively direct allocation of health care services, improve disease prevention policies and strategically inform program implementation.
