How Learning Collaboratives Can Help Health Systems Move Upstream

Many health systems know they need to move upstream to improve care and outcomes, but they’re still trying to determine how. It can be a frustrating, anxiety-provoking situation. The good news is that vanguard health systems are teaching us that an effective, exciting way to make the transformation is through goal-directed learning collaboratives.

 

Learning collaboratives are more than just groups of colleagues working in parallel. At their best, they provide a goal-directed framework, with a network of peers, to take bold steps together. Participants in collaboratives find that the process enables them to work nimbly, make rapid improvements, gain field-tested insights in real time, and receive essential moral support along the way.

 

In this webinar, directors from leading health systems and hospitals, along with HealthBegins’ own Upstream Quality Improvement expert, Sara Bader, explain the dos, don’ts, and benefits of using learning collaboratives to move upstream.

 

Speakers:

  • Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH, Founder & President, HealthBegins
  • Sara Bader, MCD, CPHQ, Senior Manager, Upstream Quality Improvement, HealthBegins
  • Robbie Phillips, MA, LPC, Senior Director, Social Determinants of Health, Truman Medical Center
  • Dana Codron, RN, MPH, Northern California Regional Director, Community Health Investment, Providence St. Joseph Health

 

Webinar Objectives:

By the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • List emerging best practices for health system upstream learning collaboratives.
  • Identify at least two challenges with these learning collaborative models.
  • Describe new opportunities for health system and community leaders to accelerate learning and improvement on the journey upstream.
