Transformational change

Carol Read RN/MSc

Healthcare systems worldwide are striving to provide patient pathways that deliver benefit, quality and contain costs. Networks are considered a way to manage care differently and work across existing boundaries.   A literature review was undertaken to identify key factors in Canada and USA research which could inform network practice in the UK.  

The research study examines key processes and supportive and inhibiting factors involved in the development, evolution and sustainability of a child health network in rural Canada.  Findings from the paper contribute to understanding of inter-organisational and cross-sectoral health networks.  It is recommended reading in full to support the blog on ransformational change, integrative leadership and international networks.

Over the past decade in the province of Quebec, Canada, the government has initiated two consecutive reforms.  These have created a new type of primary healthcare - Family medical groups (FMGs) and Local healthcare networks (LHNs) across the province.  This paper analyzes the impact of the reforms and findings are shared.  Review of this research is recomended in conjunction with the June blog on Transformational change, Integrative leadership and International networks.

The article was one of the first studies of integrative leadership behaviour.  It raises important differences in the behaviour of leaders in public sector agencies and in networks with an international perspective.  We recomend review of the paper in conjunction with the June blog on Transformational change, Integrative leadership and International networks. 

General practice is percieved to be in crisis by major think tanks and change is needed. The new report from the King Fund looks at innovative models of general practice and identifies key features for designing effective GP services in the future.  Five attributes that underpin general practice: person-centred, holistic care; access; co-ordination; continuity and community focus are outlined. A useful report to provide insight into the enviroment where networks could be deployed.

An international perspective on transformational change, which sets the context for networks to grow, thrive and deliver value.  It outlines that top-down approaches to health and care transformation focused on management-led governance & structural change rarely deliver the intended outcomes. Lasting transformation requires the relentless hard work of local operational redesign.  Networks are ideally placed to provide the structure required.
