Action Research • This Pilot is based on what is known as an “action research” improvement method. • The strength of action research is its responsiveness and the ability to turn unpromising beginnings into effective endings by converging on an appropriate outcome over time. • The VMR is encouraging pilots to innovate and change their current work practices
Plan, Do, Study and Act cycle (PDSA) The pilot sites are encouraged to apply PDSA cycles to their processes to assist them with learning and reflection. People identify issues and actions. • Site teams respond with a plan of action (PLAN). • The plan is actioned for a period of time (DO). • This may involve measuring or observing. They study and reflect on the effects (STUDY). • They act again. (ACT). • PDSA cycles are built around issues identified from the ‘floor’, and from the routine measurement of progress towards aims.
Example of an issue: “The VMR is taking longer to complete” could mean? ? ? • • It takes longer but it is worth it. Consultations were too short prior to the VMR Documentation was lacking previously It takes longer because people are still getting used to it. When familiar it will take less time. • It takes longer because women are asking questions • It takes longer because the midwives are repeating what the doctor/GP has done. POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Change to appointment times
Change “Change is complicated by the fact that organizations are social systems whose participants have identities, relationships, communities, routines, emotions and differentiated powers. Thus managers must be alert to how a change will conflict with existing social systems and routines. ” Harvard Business Essentials, Managing Change and Transition 2003
“The primary difficulty with change… • is that it is 10% logical/physical and 90% social/emotional. • No matter how much we try to justify our proposed change with logic. . . or resources, change is tough because it is primarily cultural in nature. • Cultures are primarily emotional, not logical. • Those of us who value logic like to explain our preferences from a sensible framework but when it all boils down, emotion runs deep. ”
Future impact on Health Information Services? Women carry VMR Women keep VMR reduction in clinic preparation time reduction in filing space Women read their VMR Standard forms design (Statewide) less FOI requests NCR Copies kept in medical record need to review medico legal legislation reduction in forms design responsibilities for HIM’s
Leading Change with the VMR THE VMR project is about leading change The VMR project provides an opportunity to change and innovate in the workplace The VMR project identifies staff resistance but also staff readiness The VMR project provides an opportunity for us to step back and look at the way we do things! The VMR has the promise of new vision, streamlining structures and provides a catalyse for people towards a common goal – provision of better health care for our women.
The VMR has changed my thinking! Initially I thought : • that this was a forms design project – WRONG! • that only an electronic health record would solve all our paper record problems – WRONG! • Women felt empowered in their decision making when having a baby – WRONG! I now know: • there is a lack of CONSISTENT information available for women about maternity care • HIM’s should review their role as forms design experts and custodians of medical records. • HIM’s should embrace the notion that there is a place for personal hand held records in the future! • change requires greater consideration of the social influences within ourselves and our organisation rather than just the logical influences.
Evaluation and findings • • • This pilot is well underway across 7 sites. 1, 500 women are carrying the VMR so far. 95% of woman are consenting to carry it No lost records were reported in May or June. A final evaluation will be undertaken in February 2006. • Only after feedback is received from all consumers and staff will a decision be made about whether to implement state-wide.
