In The Spotlight
Very truly yours,

There has been more innovation and advancement in healthcare within the last 50 years than in all human history. Few industry professionals experience as fast, as dynamic and as ever-changing movements and trends as those working within the healthcare space. One group of healthcare professionals is working to ensure that no one gets left behind in the process.
As part of the Convenient Care Association’s (CCA) 10-year anniversary as an industry, the Social Innovations Journal has joined forces with CCA to launch our 30th edition of the Journal and our first launch event of the new year in a new city. In this edition and launch program, we look at the retail-based convenient care clinic phenomenon and what Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen famously coined as one of the most disruptive innovations ever in healthcare. For more than a decade, retail clinic operators have dedicated themselves to ensuring that all Americans have accessible, affordable, high-quality healthcare. These “retail health clinics” have grown exponentially since their introduction to the healthcare space a decade ago. What first existed as only a handful of clinics now extends through 43 states, occupies more than 2,300 locations, employs tens of thousands of retail clinician providers such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants, and serves millions of people across the country. Because of retail clinics and the clinicians behind them, Americans now have access to affordable, convenient, and quality care.
For the launch of this edition, Innovations through Retail Health and Consumer-Driven Healthcare, the Social Innovations Journal has partnered with the Convenient Care Association, athenahealth and Public Health Institute to tell the full story of this industry. This event, in addition to documenting the inception and history of the retail clinic movement, will focus on the continual evolution and innovations happening for the future. Convenient care is continually challenging itself and healthcare providers across the nation to ensure access and convenient, quality healthcare services for all people.
RSVP today to join us for this event at the athenahealth’s headquarters on 50 Hawthorne St. in San Francisco on January 12, 2017

Dear Social Innovations Journal Readers and Partners:
Wilbur Wright once said, "It is not really necessary to look too far into the future; we see enough already to be certain it will be magnificent. Only let us hurry and open the roads."
Expanding the Journal Nationally and Globally
The Social Innovations Journal is thrilled to announce that we, too, are ready to take flight with the re-launch of our Journal and an expanded focus into national and global markets. Without our regional advisory board and investors, we never would have made it past our own start-up phase; nor would this growth be possible without the tireless support of our national and global partners. Together and regionally, we have had an incredible eight years, as the first to enter the space of social innovation, helping to create a cultural and social innovations movement, and inspiring thousands to believe in themselves and thereby launch their social sector ideas.
To achieve a national reach, we will be launching editions across the country, with our first launch focused on Chicago’s social innovations. The Social Innovations Journal will maintain its regional focus approach, true to our core belief that a region’s social innovations are the driving force for new and improved services and products, and through sharing and collaboration across the globe we increase the social impact for all of us. Our national and global partners will continue to publish articles on proven social innovations/enterprises and national trends within social sector categories and business industries.
