Exacerbated by pandemic-related delays in accessing elective diagnostics and treatments, the National Health Service (NHS) elective care waiting list is growing rapidly. Neither hard work nor money alone can fully address the growing backlog.
Instead, the NHS can adopt a bold mission to reimagine care by giving provider collaboratives the operating freedom, incentives, data, and best practices to develop system-wide solutions at a micro-battle level. It can identify a community of practitioners to build a menu of solutions and engage the next wave of providers now—not later—to ensure scaling of what works. In doing so, the NHS can follow our proven Win-Scale-Amplify℠ approach to achieve its overall mission of shrinking the waiting list and meeting national standards of care.
A micro-battle mindset and Win-Scale-Amplify℠ approach can enable healthcare providers to recover the backlog and transform productivity through innovation.
