There are several reasons why we should do more research on human factors in healthcare transformation. First, scientific evidence is fundamental for change and transformation, in particular in healthcare. Our goal is ‘evidence based transformation’.
Second, change practises should be tested thoroughly and not simply ‘copy-paste’ from other industries. We think this will work better – in particular for people involved. Finally, although considered as essential, human factors in healthcare are still highly understudied.
With research we aim for an unprecedented ‘opening up’ of medicine and related healthcare domains, in order to benefit sustainable change and improvement.
Learning & development
Managers, administrator and policy makers are increasingly being challenged with the task of implementing system-level change, like value based healthcare, triple aim, integrated care and far-stretching technology. Without exception, such programs have lasting influences on daily routines of many people involved. And for most managers, handling these impacts necessitates adequate, practical and hands-on human factor related knowledge at various levels simultaneously.
DIRMI learning & development activities are characterised by:
Implementation and valorisation
DIRMI Projects connect science and society by facilitating development and implementation of top-notch products and services that enable healthcare transformation. Public-private partnerships within the DIRMI network synthesize the added values of field-experience and scientific insights, and often result in lasting collaborations in market roll-out of proven practises.
