The Beckwith Institute’s Frontline Innovation Program
The Frontline Innovation Program was established by the Beckwith Institute, in partnership with UPMC, to encourage the discovery and development of best practices that advance the quality of health care locally and nationally, and to recognize those who make a positive contribution to patient care. We encourage ideas, creativity, and ingenuity from all roles across UPMC, including frontline staff members, leaders, clinicians, and non-clinicians, to have a positive impact on patient care.
