Dr. John Vozenilek, MD works primarily across two wonderful entities in central Illinois; University of Illinois College of Engineering (BioEng) and Health Care Systems Engineering Center and as Chief Medical Officer for Digital Health and Innovation, leading OSF Innovation and the OSF Jump Center. At OSF, the work began as proper training for clinicians, now the center leads the charge to incorporate design and engineering into our healthcare work. Currently, the simulation center allows designers and engineers to observe and characterize “work as performed” for their creative efforts.  

As Chief Medical Officer for Digital Health and Innovation, Dr. Vozenilek leads efforts to improve health outcomes; in particular via physician and provider workforce development, in telehealth applications, human centered design work to address disparities in health outcomes due to non-clinical determinants of health, and in the design of interventions addressing cost, quality, patient and provider experience. Under his remit, the “Innovation Discovery Labs” have established key focus areas for healthcare innovation at OSF.
