Role of Co-creation for Large-Scale Sustainable Adoption of Digitally Supported Integrated Care: Prehabilitation as Use Case.

We are very pleased to inform you that the manuscript “Role of Co-creation for Large-Scale Sustainable Adoption of Digitally Supported Integrated Care: Prehabilitation as Use Case”, in which Ramon Martinez de Sarasa, has participated as a member of Stimulo, has been accepted for publication in the journal International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC).

Gradually Stimulo Design agency is pivoting our design experience towards the evidence-based co-creation combining appropriate methodologies and a structured evaluation framework. The efficacy-effectiveness gap constitutes a well-known limitation for adoption of digitally enabled integrated care services. The current report describes the co-creation process undertaken (2016–2021) to deploy a prehabilitation service at Hospital Clínic de Barcelona with the final aim of achieving sustainable adoption and facilitate site transferability.

 

 

The current report provides three well-defined outcomes. Firstly, it illustrates the potential of evidence-based co-creation, specifically using Design Thinking methods, and quality improvement methodologies with iterative PDSA cycles to achieve large-scale implementation of integrated care services for chronic patients, taking as a use case prehabilitation. As a second outcome, it identified factors influencing prehabilitation results and the determinants of adoption of the service, using the CFIR framework. Finally, from the lessons learnt, we propose a list of Key Performance Indicators for long-term quality assurance of the intervention after adoption. Overall, the co-creation approach shows high potential for service refinement in other complex healthcare interventions.
