Established in 2009, the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Innovation Council is charged with the mission of advancing a culture of innovation at HHS. The Council, which contains representatives from every major operating and staff division at HHS, meets to discuss issues of relevance to the Department’s Innovation Agenda and provides guidance on the HHS IDEA Lab’s pathways and projects. The Council oversees HHS’s open government efforts, including enhancing collaboration and participation activities at HHS. The Council has actively invited outside stakeholders to participate in these meetings as a way of bringing an external perspective to the dialogue and to provide a forum through which agency leadership can consider private sector, non-profit, and other governmental agency perspectives in its deliberations.
