Complexity in Healthcare: Will you know it when you see it? (Pop-Up Conversation)
January 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am EST
Awareness of the principles of complexity continues to be both a boon and a problem for many scientific disciplines, resulting in intense discussions about how best to integrate this method of scientific discovery with established practices. The major divisions in the development and application of “complexity informed” models and tools have been between the legitimacy of mathematics versus conceptual models both for discovery and proof.
This divergence of approaches in clearly evident in the field of healthcare; mathematics is firmly holding sway on the side of disease and infirmity with a predominantly conceptual approach on the organizational side of health care.
Plexus Catalyst Mike Taylor, will host an engaged and savage point counterpoint type discussion, where participants will examine the role of complexity in both the mathematics and conceptual approaches in health care design and delivery. Taylor will explore what is working, what needs reworking and what is emerging. Examples from a variety of perspectives will be provided with an emphasis on health care organizations as complex adaptive systems.
