Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Health is in its first year. The turnaround time for the publishing of manuscripts is a few weeks. Peer reviews are high quality, and the journal is open access, filling an important niche in "pracademic" publishing. Special focus will be given to the theory, process, and practice of innovation and entrepreneurship by individuals and organizations within the health care context globally. This journal is directed at academics conducting research and teaching in this area, as well as practitioners who are looking for creative and innovative solutions to the vexing problems of cost, quality, and access encountered by most health care organizations and systems. It gives academics and practitioners a forum for circulating ideas and research aimed at improving managerial practice and public policy. The journal publishes original research papers, cases of innovations that have been implemented and scaled, essays containing deeper analysis than is available in blogs or opinion-editorial pages, and comments from readers.
