THINKING

ABOUT OUTCOMES

IN A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT WAY

MASTERCLASSES

OUTCOMES WORKSHOPS

Masterclasses

This is a key aspect of what we do. As much as anything, this is about winning the hearts and minds of people in your health organization about investing time in thinking about outcomes in a completely different way. Designed principally for a professional audience and with a strong educational focus, we work with you to identify where you would most benefit from moving towards outcomes based approaches. Needing a minimum of half a day to do properly, these generally take the format of some type of case-based teaching on outcomes and value based approaches, followed by a short topic lecture on outcomes based healthcare. 

We share examples from other organisations who are implementing outcomes based healthcare, followed by a facilitated discussion about the particular issues which outcomes based approaches may help in your organization. With a mix of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds ourselves, masterclasses are designed and nearly always delivered to a mixed audience of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, and cover both clinical and non-clinical areas in a fully integrated manner.

If you’re interested in discussing any of these do get in touch.

Outcomes Workshops

Workshops

Designed for a mixed audience of people who use, pay for and provide health and care services, these workshops are suitable for any organization that wishes to co-define outcomes that matter to patients, with patients. We offer support for you to run workshops for groups of people with similar health and social circumstances and needs, to co-define outcomes measures that matter most across the complete care pathway. We like to make these more accessible to a broad range of people by using a variety of innovative online and collaboration approaches. In addition to these two key activities, we support training and education of clinicians and other healthcare professionals in training, both in formal academic programs, and more informal settings.

Outcomes Innovation Hub

We believe that no-one has a monopoly on all the good ideas in outcomes based healthcare- our role is simply to encourage those ideas to come to the fore, and then help the spread of good ideas that work. With that in mind, we do support a small number of hugely innovative projects, where people have a brave new idea to measure and improve outcomes, but don’t necessarily have the resources to pay for our input. We can only support very few projects in this way at any one time, so we pick the very best ideas. This is what really gets us out of bed in the morning! 

The only criteria are that:

  • you have to have a really good idea
  • you must be absolutely committed to measuring and improving real health outcomes
  • you are prepared to share that learning with others

The support we can offer is quite varied. Sometimes it’s just putting people in touch with other people who can help, or share their experience on a similar issue. Other times it’s more ‘hands on’, in the form of us either mentoring, acting as an ‘ideas coach’ or actually providing specific support. It very much depends on your idea!! Get in touch if you think you have something suitable. We also can put you in touch with people we have worked with in this way before to see if you think it would work for you. Look out for some of our innovation pioneers’ guest posts on our blog.
