A healthy future demands an ecosystem view of value and design
1 Comment January 01, 2018
Today’s complex health and care systems are buckling under the pressures of chronic problems and ever-tightening resources. Whilst there is always optimism that some new technologies will come to the rescue, many are not adopted, do not scale and fail to realise their ambitions. They do not create enough of the right value to make a big enough difference. To me, it seems that many of our best efforts merely just slice, dice and recombine underperforming parts of the clinical failure-repair and recovery health system. They are designed within a narrow frame of logic, understanding and action … and value. I say this need not be the case. I believe it is time to think differently, more widely and even more radically in order to discover and realise more valid possibilities for improving, transforming and redesigning value in health and care systems.
