PDW: Frontiers in Integration Research: Signals from Practice
Date: Saturday, Aug 10, 2019 at 1:00PM – 2:30 PM
Location: Sheraton Boston Hotel; Jamaica Pond Room.
Session description:Care that is integrated across providers, settings, and time is critical for patients, and yet many organizations struggle to change their systems, cultures, and routines to deliver care that is truly integrated. This PDW seeks to advance the frontiers of organizational research on integration by drawing signals from practice about challenges in leading and managing organizational change toward better integrated patient care. We anticipate this highly interactive, boundary-crossing PDW to generate novel research ideas, forge new relationships across academics and practitioners, and pose thought-provoking questions about the relationship between research and practice. The PDW will be conducted in three parts: (1) A panel in which four health sector leaders describe an integration effort and challenge they face; (2) Roundtable discussions in which attendees interact with panelists and faculty facilitators to brainstorm research ideas that can both advance scholarship and directly inform practice; (3) Report back and discussion, with closing remarks by Professor Sara Singer.
