Subsidy request for digital clinic

Impact

Challenge

In The Netherlands, the care for sexually transmitted diseases is under pressure. As a result, STDs are on the rise, which results in higher costs and a higher workload for healthcare professionals. Further pressuring the already stressed healthcare system.

The solution? The ‘STD clinic of the future’: a digital platform for more digital and more demand-driven STD care. To realise this platform, regional STD/AIDS care providers want to work together and apply for a government subsidy from the ‘Integraal Zorg Akkoord’.

Expertise

Impact

Impact Stewards help these organisations in this application process. There’s a lot of work involved. In writing the application, but also in realising the digital clinic itself. There are many technological, process, organisational, and cultural changes required from the care providers involved. Together, we design these changes.

Futureproof housing and organisation

Impact

Challenge

A large healthcare provider with multiple locations knows it has to move. It leads to fundamental questions: what are the best locations for our activities, our people, and our planet?

This situation requires a good think about what a futureproof organisation looks like. And to design a housing strategy accordingly.

Expertise

Impact

Impact Stewards helps this care provider formulate a suitable strategy. One that is in line with rules and regulations, but also in line with the organisation's own sustainability and efficiency goals. We perform a feasibility study for the different housing options. Also, we support the implementation of the strategy, including the moving and building works.

Easing the workload of nurses

Impact

Challenge

The clinic for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is overwhelmed. Its specialised nurses experience a high workload and stress-levels. It results in a stop in treating new patients.

To ease the workload of the nurses, we need to learn about its causes. From those causes, we can find solutions to structurally lower the nurses’ workload. 

Expertise

Impact

Impact Stewards has made a root-cause analysis, together with nurses, physicians, and other stakeholders. We created a prioritised overview of solutions to ease the workload. Currently, we are implementing the most impactful solutions in working groups.

Accelerate access to medicine

Impact

Challenge

The Netherlands is slower than other European countries in prescribing innovative medicines. New medication is relatively slow to be adopted in medical guidelines. Also, the implementation of these guidelines takes relatively long.

To increase the accessibility and the adoption of innovative medicines, parties across the healthcare chain must work together. From pharmaceutical companies to medical specialists.

Expertise

Impact

Impact Stewards facilitates this process. Together, we work on solutions that are supported by all parties. This way, we can accelerate the adoption of new medicines.

Reducing healthcare providers' workload

Impact

Challenge

Several clinics of this hospital are operating at full capacity. Its specialised nurses experience a high workload and stress. The hospitals want to make sure new patients can still be provided for.

To ease the workload of the nurses, we need to learn its causes. From those causes, we can find solutions to structurally lower the nurses’ workload

Expertise

Impact

Impact Stewards works together with nurses, physicians, and other stakeholders to perform a series of root cause analyses. This way, we can design the most impactful solutions. For these solutions, we are now working on an implementation plan.

Digital innovation with healthcare providers

Impact

Challenge

'De Zeeuwse Zorgcoalitie' is a cooperation between regional healthcare providers and a healthcare insurance company. The cooperation works on multiple transformation projects in the Zeeland region. One of these is called Kerngezond, a local cooperation between healthcare providers, municipalities, and healthcare insurance companies. How can digital innovation help improve access to healthcare?   

Expertise

Impact 

Impact Steward supports this project in its digital innovation. We bring together the different healthcare providers and stakeholders to find digital solutions, such as  digital triage or digitising administration. All focused on using digital innovation to make sure access to health can be safeguarded.
