Demystifying the I in QIPP

    Having just facilitated a workshop in the NHS on corporate resilience in times of challenge, this model that Helen outlines seems perfect in the context of sustaining resilience - the need to be a healthy organisation by constantly re-thinking purpose and process. But there needs to be a coathook. Improving quality doesn't really do it for me, simply because I think the workforce element of improving quality is often forgotten. So, I'd like to see the coathook as improving wellbeing and performance through a constant process of rethinking, but orientated towards commitment, trust and engagement, as when these are achieved, quality exists and is made even better, and encouraging innovation (however defined) is a key element of commitment, trust and engagement as it provokes challenges, and challenge is a strong feature of commitment and engagement.

    An excellent summary, Helen, of ways that we can combine looking for incremental innovations in our practice areas with system wide, strategic innovations. I'm looking forward to your next post about disruptive innovations!

    I also linked to this article in my post at, where I'm detailing the process ahead of an event planned to bring people together to hack some solutions to barriers we face introducing innovations using digital and social media in health.
