Global diffusion of healthcare Innovation

Spreading new ideas in health care requires governments and healthcare organizations to set out a clear vision of what can be achieved, establish standards, and eliminate old ways of working. However, most countries are not delivering on these measures, according to a new study.

The Global Diffusion of Health Innovation report, published at WISH, identifies the factors that speed the uptake of advances in healthcare. The groundbreaking research looked at how Qatar, India, Brazil, the UK, US, Australia, Spain and South Africa diffuse new ideas to improve healthcare for their populations.

The groundbreaking study, led by Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development, is the first time researchers have attempted to chart the conditions that foster the spread of health innovations around the world.

The research  identified "champions of change" - people who excelled in engaging patients and addressing clinicians' concerns. But seven out of the eight countries in which the research was conducted were poor at eliminating old ways of working, adapting innovations to the local context, and at creating time and space for learning.

While each country had different factors that influenced the spread of new ideas, the study found that one common factor - winning the hearts and minds of those on the front line - was critical to the spread of new ideas and ways of working.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
