In a health context, readiness refers to the ability of a health system to quickly and sustainably adapt its policies, infrastructure and processes to support the integration of components of care.
HPP is excited to launch a new programme of work which aims to highlight the importance of health system readiness and provide tools to assess this, with the goal of driving evidence-based policymaking.
As part of this new programme we have adapted the Readiness Assessment Framework, initially applied to radioligand therapy, to evaluate current integration of and readiness for innovative approaches to care across a health system. The framework can be adapted to different components of care and settings.
HPP is exploring readiness for other areas of healthcare, including non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (or NASH), for which there is a huge unmet need in diagnosis and treatment. Find out more about HPP’s work in NASH here.
We have developed a brand-new website and Twitter feed for the health system readiness programme – follow @HealthReadiness for the latest updates and view the website below. Many further developments are coming this year, including a readiness hub of best practice examples for radioligand therapy.
