The main purpose of this study is to determine the effect of intellectual capital accumulation on innovative practices in today's health care businesses. Answers have been searched for the questions of "Is there any relationship between intellectual capital accumulation and innovative practices in health care businesses?" and "If so, what is the direction of this relationship and interaction?" 245 employees from two hospitals operating in Istanbul have constituted the sample mass of this research, which has been performed with a combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods, and the opinion of the respondents has been measured by means of a conceptual model. As a result of the research, it has been concluded that the sub-dimensions of intellectual capital as human capital, relationship capital and organizational capital in health care businesses positively impact innovation activities.
