Health Deals are agreements between the government and various other parties, including private parties. They concern concrete healthcare innovations that cannot be applied beyond the local hospital, the healthcare institution or region. These are care innovations that have social impact, such as improving the quality of life of patients, or increasing efficiency in the chain. To increase learning capacity in this context it is important that knowledge from specific Health Deals can be shared with other Health Deals.
Qualitative research into learning outcomes and making them shareable
The IvBM is committed to maximizing the learning benefits based on the Health Deals to date. The IVBM does not want to formulate a value judgment directly, but wants to share learning benefits on the basis of "double-loop learning" between completed, ongoing, starting and possible future Health Deals. We apply the following classification:
- Learning after: learning from completed Health Deals;
- Learning while: stimulating an interim learning process for ongoing Health Deals;
- Learning before: participating in the start-up phase of a Health Deal and stimulating the learning from previous experiences.
