New collaborative initiative will promote coordination and development in health care2020-06-25
CTF, Service Research Center at Karlstad University, is one of the initiators of a new arena for learning and experimentation to support the transition of the health care initiative towards a more person centered and integrated care. The initiative is conducted in cooperation with Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKR), Experio Lab Sweden, Design at Linköping University and the City of Helsingborg.
The actors will together with municipalities and regions create a neutral arena for co-creation, develop new work routines, and learn about the complex challenges that are linked to health and the development of person-centered and integrated care. The work focuses on doing, but also on the development of governance and management that can support the transition.
"This initiative means long-term development work for us at CTF. We are excited for the opportunity to work with talented and committed people. The work is completely in line with our research on transformation of systems," says Johan Quist, Associate Professor of Business Administration at CTF and Karlstad Business School.
The purpose of the collaboration is to gain new insights from regions, municipalities, SKR and other actors, of the opportunities and obstacles at different levels during the transition.
Regions and municipalities will get help in managing complex challenges
Regions and municipalities, working together in their geographical area, are participating with shared complex challenges linked to the development of person-centered and integrated care. Some examples are the areas of increased mental illness among young people or the care of multi-ill elderly people. In this new arena, they will have access to methods and be facilitated with cutting-edge competence in, among other things, design and data-driven innovation.
"CTF is a world-leading research environment with the potential to enrich the initiative. A new national development arena will also provide exciting opportunities for us to further develop our research, concludes Johan Quist.
