Quality Improvement Design Collaborative Huddle and Digital Submission ePortal
- Winning idea
What is the challenge your project is going to address and how does it connect to the theme?
Collaborative providers are geographically dispersed and there is no single cross site eportal collaborative space for the submission of Quality Improvement and Innovation proposals and the potential for digital solutions to support this. The idea is to test out a ‘Design Collaborative Huddle’ offering a single place for the esubmission, coaching and design development of improvement and innovation proposals and where digital solutions can enable success. The focus will be on inter professional improvement coaching collaboration. The membership is drawn from research, clinical audit, NICE quality standards, Quality, digital and organisational development with additional expertise and training in improvement design. This group will support proposers with their improvement ideas, strengthening methodological approaches to implementing QI projects. The DCH will also support cross organisational learning and scaling up of tested and proven QI projects. The aim is to strengthen provider and integrated improvement opportunities.
What does your project aim to achieve?
1. To develop a single ICS collaborative eportal for submission of improvement and Innovation ideas.
2. To bring together an interprofessional group to work to coach collaboratively and where digital is routinely considered as focus to quality improvement to proposals and innovative ideas.
3. To ensure that service users and carers are involved in participating or leading on quality improvement ideas
4. Maximise the use of population and cross organisational ICS data to inform how we can reduce inequalities within each proposal
How will the project be delivered?
Methodology: Using the NHS Improvement Model, a test for proof of concept which is being co designed will be ran over 90 days initially equating to 3 PDSA cycles and a final evaluation of the ePortal and the ‘Design Collaborative Huddle’ with recommendations.
The ‘Design Collaborative Huddle’ will operate as a pilot using the model of improvement. In simple terms, three basic questions will underpin proposals by applying the systematic approach of the ‘NHS Improvement Model’:
a) What are we trying to accomplish?
b) How will we know that a change is an improvement?
c) What change can we make that will result in an improvement?
The ‘Design Collaborative Huddle’ will be a key enabler to refine and strengthen the interdependencies between the Design Huddle, QI programme, Transformation, Research and Digital and service users and carers with lived experience. Methods of collating evaluation data and benefits experienced is built into the methodology.
How is your project going to share learning?
The outcome of the pilot will be evaluated using both qualitative and quantitative data which are in the form of process, balancing and outcome measures and semi structured feedback during the 90 day pilot. The experience of colleagues participating in the Design Collaborative Network and the proposers will be an important part of co evaluating the learning from the pilot. This will be developed into a paper for submission to Q and also a journal article to share the learning. Opportunities for wider dissemination such as within other journals and also websites such as NHS fab stuff and the lead for the project will also take the opportunity to share the learning with the Improvement Directors Network and colleagues from NHS Horizons.
