MedStar Institute for Innovation

MedStar Institute for Innovation’s Monthly All Minds Meetings (MAMM) are continuing on their sixth year of convening insightful speakers to cultivate ideas capable of improving patient experience across the system. Nicoleta Parau, Leatt Gilboa, and Jeff Collins are among the leaders who work together each month to bring about these beneficial meetings. "We’re grateful for the MAMM and the collaboration that it inspires each month. Thanks to everyone’s participation, the MAMM showcases powerful ways to help improve our patient experience through energetic innovation." Many of these meetings become a catalyst for a higher level of care, increasing patient gratefulness.
