What do the following have in common? An integrated circuit of home based hospitalisation, a telephonic nursing management project, a plan to minimise risks and the safe use of drugs, the use of ICTs in patients treated with oral anticoagulants, an assistance route of collaboration between primary and specialised care, the redesign of a programme of assistance in sexual and reproductive health, a functional unit of chronic and subacute patients, the optimisation of assistance to a patient who has undergone surgery and an oncological-geriatric unit of intermediary care?
They are all innovative projects or experiences which are compiled in the Observatory of Innovation in Healthcare Management, a reference framework to detect innovative initiatives and tendencies in the Catalan Health System. You can read about it in this post by Dolors Benítez.
“Promoting collaborations between organisations by creating synergies, interest groups and setting up challenges.”
If talking about challenges, we have quite a few and innovation is in fact intended to provide solutions to make improvements.
Innovating, therefore, can be seen as a constant and necessary attitude that we can identify in all professional fields and areas of life.
In the AQuAS blog, we have shared some projects with a strong innovative component.
