Implementing Innovations within a Complex Healthcare System
This presentation will present a theory regarding how healthcare systems operate and how one can use this theory to determine effective strategies for implementing an innovation within a given system. System levers will be defined and the importance of these levers in guiding innovation implementation will be explained. Specific examples will be provided regarding how to assess a given system's levers and use the results of these assessments to effectively guide implementation. Dr. Pringle will also present the results of her work in applying these principles within various healthcare settings.
