The Value from Continuous Improvement in Healthcare

WBS Roundtable Event on “The Value from Continuous Improvement in Healthcare” to be held on Monday 11 September at Warwick Business School and 19 September Warwick Business School, Shard. 


These roundtables have been designed to encourage debate and discussion about ways in which the value of the impact of continuous improvement in healthcare can be assessed and captured. The Warwick event will begin with an Introduction and Welcome from John Ashcroft from NHSE (Warwick event) and Andy Hardy CEO of University of Coventry and Warwickshire and deputy Chair of the NHS Impact Board (London event), who will place the event in the context of the NHS Impact programme which was launched by NHSE in April.


Professor Bernard Crump from WBS will then set the context and will reference relevant findings from the evaluation of the NHS-Virginia Mason Institute partnership which was led by Dr Nicola Burgess from WBS. He will introduce the challenges of assessing value from continuous improvement in healthcare and the published work on this topic.

Richard Sawyers, Programme Manager for One Finance, will describe the developing EVO framework being trialled in a number of NHS organisations which focuses on Engagement, Value and Outcomes.


Dr Amar Shah from East London NHS Foundation Trust, will describe the approach that his Trust has taken to the assessment of value arising from their work to improve the quality of services. (London Event)


Jane Evans, from St. Vincent’s Health in Australia will share her work on the development of a framework to capture value from continuous improvement in a number of hospitals, along with the systematic review that she has published. All of these speakers, along with Dr Burgess, will then form a panel to answer questions and respond to your comments and local experiences. We will use a simple system with which you can interact through a mobile phone or device to ask questions or to comment.


All participants will then work in groups of ten, from different disciplines, to consider a range of questions around the topic. Each group will have a rapporteur to capture comments which will feed into the report that will be written after these events.


This site will be updated after the event with slides from presenters and articles of relevance.
