Clinical networks: enablers of health system change
- The federal Advisory Panel on Healthcare Innovation noted the importance of innovation in health care and that most health care systems lack the ability to scale and spread innovation.
- Some health systems have created system-wide clinical networks that identify priorities, explore solutions and implement strategies to improve care and outcomes.
- Early evaluations suggest that clinical networks can improve care processes and enable system-wide change.
- Successful networks have effective leadership, partnerships and communication; are embedded within the health system; operate with adequate resources; and strategically align projects.
