An army medic in fatigues with a stethoscope around his neck.In an effort to advance ideation and expand collaboration to improve health care, the Veterans Health Administration Innovation Ecosystem Innovators’ network (iNET) has launched the Greenhouse initiative.

Health care innovators outside the VA now will be able to collaborate directly with iNET sites across the country to connect with a pool of engaged and equipped front-line health care professionals, millions of end users and more to design future health care solutions.

The program provides the opportunity to:

  1. Conduct end-user discovery and ideation.
  2. Share early-stage product designs for end-user feedback.
  3. Conduct small-scale product feasibility testing with appropriate end users and collect feedback.

Potential external collaborators can learn more about the process and apply to participate in the Greenhouse.
