About the Lab
The HHS IDEA Lab is working to cultivate innovation to create a more modern and effective government. The foundational effort of the HHS IDEA Lab is to overcome barriers to communication and collaboration between organizational siloes and practices that prevent people from working together. The approach the IDEA Lab takes is based on four tenents:
- Innovation is a direct result of the freedom to experiment;
- Design is critical to effectively communicate ideas;
- Entrepreneurship allows us to take advantage of underutilzed talent; and
- Action, above all else, is encouraged.
We have a dual approach to changing the way government works by engaging HHS leadership at the highest levels to support the adoption of testing of new ideas and are equipping HHS employees who have an idea and what test it with new business practices, mentoring and innovation programs.
