Transcript of "Integrating Health Care Communities of Practice - Uruguay Final Cme New Integrating Health Care Communities Of Practice Final 27 May"

  1. 1. Integrating Health Care Communities of Practice: The Case of Uruguay CME CONGRESS – 29-31 May, 2008 Vancouver Ann Séror MBA, PhD eResearch Collaboratory, Quebec City, QC, Canada Email: annseror,@eresearchcollaboratory.com
  2. 2. Integrating Health Care Communities of Practice: The Case of Uruguay <ul><li>OBJECTIVES </li></ul><ul><li>To develop a theoretical framework Communities of practice (Wenger) Knowledge ecology (Trist, Nonaka) </li></ul><ul><li>To consider methodological strategies Qualitative case analysis (Yin) Virtual infrastructure mapping (Carley, 1998) </li></ul><ul><li>To identify the configuration of virtual infrastructures. National Health Care System of Uruguay - CME Knowledge management for evidence-based medical practice </li></ul><ul><li>To formulate some conclusions and recommendations. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Economic analysis of national health care systems shows that the important positive correlation between gross national product and indicators of health care quality such as life expectancy is mediated by variables related to equitable distribution of wealth as well as rates of public expenditure in the healthcare sector. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Sen A. Economics and Health. The Lancet 1999;354:20 </li></ul>INTRODUCTION
  4. 4. Health Care Systems <ul><li>A health care system is a dynamic set of interconnected individuals, institutions, organizations, and projects offering products and services in health care markets. (Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, 2004) p. 1 </li></ul><ul><li>The functions of the health system include all categories of service delivery, financing and other resource generation and allocation, and governance. Governance includes both policy making and regulation at all levels of the system. </li></ul><ul><li>Service delivery is here broadly defined to encompass information, research, and education services as well as public health and delivery of patient care, both preventative and curative. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Virtual Infrastructures <ul><li>Overlapping distribution networks, systems brokerage functions emphasizing the devices and channels through which information is processed and distributed. </li></ul><ul><li>Accessibility through Internet websites and gateways designed to facilitate integrated use of the resources. </li></ul><ul><li>“ VIRTUAL” describes any web-based service, organization or institution arising from the technical infrastructure defined above. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Health Care System Transformation <ul><li>Pressures for collaboration, data-sharing and access to distributed resources increase the focus on interconnection of services both within and across institutions. (Foster, 2002) </li></ul><ul><li>Technological trends and commercial pressures foster service decomposition and distribution through networks rather than host-centric systems. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Communities of Practice <ul><li>Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Shared domain of interest. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Community relationships for learning. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shared repertoire of resources for practice. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tools for translation of information into knowledge. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Source: Wenger, E. : http://www.ewenger.com/theory/ </li></ul>

  9. 9. Qualitative Case Analysis <ul><li>Technological innovation and economic globalization drive rapid changes rendering nomological model identification elusive. </li></ul><ul><li>Need for inquiry into the cognitive mapping of large scale socio-ecological systems characterized by network structures expressing negotiated rather than bureaucratic order. Source: Trist, E. (1977) available at http://www.agsm.edu.au/~eajm/7710/trist.html </li></ul><ul><li>Idiographic case research methods offer tools for descriptive analysis and assessment of complex health care management systems within their social, economic, and cultural contexts.
