Monthly Program: “Agile Implementation in Healthcare” (6:30p-8:30pm)
Presented by Dr. Malaz Boustani, MD, MPH, Founding Director and Chief Innovation Officer at the Center for Health Innovation and Implementation Science at Indiana University School of Medicine.
Despite the more than $32 billion the National Institutes of Health has invested annually in research, healthcare delivery organizations are not reliably implementing, sustaining or scaling evidence-based solutions. Currently, one in four patients seeking healthcare will receive suboptimal care or actual harm from the existing system. The US healthcare system is in need of significant change, yet change is not happening. To achieve the goal of better care and evidence-based services, healthcare systems need new organizational approaches and frameworks to reflect the complexity of the system.
To improve implementation of care based on evidence, Dr. Boustani and his team of innovators and implementation scientists borrowed from Agile software development along with other theories and frameworks to develop the Agile Implementation (AI). AI is an integrated model that provides reproducible and scalable process to localize rapidly, implement and sustain evidence-based services.
Agile Implementation includes eight interconnected steps beginning with identifying opportunities and ending with developing minimally standardized operating procedure. The model embraces implementation sprints and ongoing evaluations of solutions. AI has helped to improve care and clinical outcomes in a variety of care settings. Clinicians, scientists, quality improvement advisors and anyone in the healthcare system passionate about change can receive training on AI at the Center for Health Innovation and Implementation Science, part of Indiana University School of Medicine.
