Culture is Important in Hospital Mergers & Acquisitions

Culture is Important in Hospital Mergers & Acquisitions | Health Policy & Planning | Scoop.it

Partnerships are king in today's health care marketplace, as providers and payers search for allies to add muscle to better pursue population health management. And although it may seem "squishy" and intangible at times, culture should be a primary determinant as to whether your hospital shakes hands with, or walks away from, potential suitors.

Some basic but often overlooked leadership imperatives. All great, but "Be Willing to Listen to Everyone" is one I wish leaders would take to heart more.

Technology diffusion in hospitals: research report - The International Journal of Health Planning and Management

Technology diffusion in hospitals: research report - The International Journal of Health Planning and Management | Health Policy & Planning | Scoop.it

This study identifies the factors that affect the diffusion of hospital innovations. We apply a log odds random effects regression model on hospital micro data. We introduce the concept of clustering innovations and the application of a log odds random effects regression model to describe the diffusion of technologies. We distinguish a number of determinants, such as service, physician, and environmental, financial and organizational characteristics of the 60 Dutch hospitals in our sample.

 

On the basis of this data set on Dutch general hospitals over the period 1995–2002, we conclude that there is a relation between a number of determinants and the diffusion of innovations underlining conclusions from earlier research. Positive effects were found on the basis of the size of the hospitals, competition and a hospital's commitment to innovation. It appears that if a policy is developed to further diffuse innovations, the external effects of demand and market competition need to be examined, which would de facto lead to an efficient use of technology. For the individual hospital, instituting an innovations office appears to be the most prudent course of action. © 2013 The Authors.

Engaging patients could be the solution to rising global healthcare costs #PatientEngagement

Engaging patients could be the solution to rising global healthcare costs #PatientEngagement | Health Policy & Planning | Scoop.it

Health ministers face a dizzying array of possibilities for improving the health of their nations. The most important experts however – ordinary people managing their own health – are typically left out of the equation.

 

Across the world healthcare costs are rising faster than countries' ability to meet them. The answer to the crisis is not going to come from doing more of the same. Instead, harnessing the energy of patients and the public who care about improving their own health – a huge untapped resource – could become the blockbuster solution of the century.

 

With the growth of electronic communication, the internet and social media, patients are increasingly making their voice heard. In mental health, end of life care and antimicrobial resistance, sharing experience has proved a powerful tool for improving quality and reducing costs.

 

A fundamental shift in the way we provide care, in order to encourage increased involvement of patients and the public will be proposed in a report at The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) to be held in Qatar this week (10-11 December).

 

The summit, an initiative of Qatar Foundation and many partners, will bring together 800 leading figures in government, business and the health sector from around the world to address the global challenges that face all health systems.

The Great Transformation - Lead Article for 2014 Drucker Forum

The article is intended to provide the backdrop for the 2014 Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna. It deals with the challenges and opportunities for management in the face of the gigantic changes that we are experiencing in our society. Technology is a game changer - yet it will lead down the wrong path if not accompanied the appreciation of the essence of what it means to be human. Humanist leaders must provide the context and grounding for a society that is in danger to become increasingly technology obsessed. Hence the call for a 2nd Renaissance.

Population Health: The Risks & Rewards

The transition to risk-based payment requires new technical capabilities and may dramatically transform care systems

• Government and private payers are moving rapidly to value-based risk payment.
• Payments include rewards and penalties for system wide performance on population-based metrics, such as inpatient readmission rates and preventive care for chronic conditions.
• Managing population health requires systems to reorganize care horizontally, integrating inpatient, outpatient, rehabilitation home and preventive care to achieve specific performance benchmarks.
• Systems must develop specific capabilities to manage on a population basis, including integrated IT with analytics, integrated clinical networks and care coordination.
• These changes may require significant system reorganization.

The Psychometric Properties of CollaboRATE: A Fast and Frugal Patient-Reported Measure of the Shared Decision-Making Process

Background: Patient-centered health care is a central component of current health policy agendas. Shared decision making (SDM) is considered to be the pinnacle of patient engagement and methods to promote this are becoming commonplace. However, the measurement of SDM continues to prove challenging. Reviews have highlighted the need for a patient-reported measure of SDM that is practical, valid, and reliable to assist implementation efforts. In consultation with patients, we developed CollaboRATE, a 3-item measure of the SDM process.
Objective: There is a need for scalable patient-reported measure of the SDM process. In the current project, we assessed the psychometric properties of CollaboRATE.
