Advancing Health Systems

Health Systems research at Hennick Bridgepoint examines the current ways that patients with complex, chronic health conditions receive care, highlights areas for improvement and experiments with and evaluates solutions for re-engineering the health system to better respond to current needs.

Those solutions may be to the care pathway, such as changes to when and how different providers see a patient; and changes in how a patient moves from a hospital to homecare; and how health care providers, from family doctors to specialists, therapists and homecare providers communicate with each other; and how we can work with them towards a single integrated and holistic care plan.

Health Systems research also includes using population-based data to propose changes to health care policy, including healthcare spending, that will improve care for patients with complex conditions.
