Welcome to CoLab – an collaborative, interactive atlas of system improvement activities designed to collect international knowledge and experience and connect you with experts nationally and internationally who have already identified solutions to your problems – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
The challenges facing the delivery of health and other public sector services across New Zealand and around the world aren’t unique – indeed, they are very similar. Finding solutions however is a global challenge and the best opportunity open to us is collaboration; sharing our learning, experiences and skills, in order to bring about change – faster and more effectively.
We needed a mechanism not only to share world knowledge, but more importantly to learn, share and activate tangible change, together. Many of these learnings, reflections and solutions already exist, but often they are developed and exist in isolation and are not broadly shared and communicated.
Ko Awatea understands the need and opportunity for us all to maximise the impact of these initiatives; to share and learn from the latest thinking from the very best leaders, researchers and practitioners locally, nationally and internationally.
CoLab affords users the opportunity to gain direction and inspiration from those who have solved similar problems. It is designed to support those that are eager to engage with other systems, and learn from them as often as they give to them – share improvement knowledge collaboratively.
Use CoLab to upload your improvement work and ‘get on the map’ or search for solutions to your organisational issues by clicking on the ‘search by theme’ or ‘search by country’ button.
Let’s CoLaborate in the pursuit of ‘great care everywhere’ for our patients, our communities, our population!
