Chief Innovation Officer
Roy Rosin is the chief innovation officer at Penn Medicine. He works with thought leaders from across the health system to turn ideas into measurable impact in the areas of health outcomes, patient experience, and high-value care.
 
Previously, Roy served as the first vice president of innovation for Intuit, a leading software company best known for Quicken, QuickBooks, and TurboTax. In this role, he led changes in how Intuit manages new business creation, allowing small teams pursuing new opportunities to get to market and experiment rapidly.

Passion areas

Helping people achieve and maintain health while supporting the incredible clinicians who do the hard work.

Favorite project outcome

Every time we materially move a needle – keeping people out of the hospital, shortening stays in the hospital, reducing symptoms or side effects, enabling faster access to care, or just eliminating friction – which happily, this team does often!

What will the future of health care look like?

Value-based, lower friction, moving to lower-cost care sites and staying more continually connected with patients.
