Stefan Larsson, a doctor and BCG Fellow, makes the case for increased collaboration between doctors for improved quality of healthcare. His research has shown that when doctors agree on standards of healthcare, and measure their services against them, the overall standard of care rises. In 2013, he led research into measuring these standards across several countries and in four diseases.
With no generally agreed definition of how to measure the quality of care for mothers-to-be, we are hoping that Dr. Larsson’s ideas extend to healthcare provision for pregnant women.
How do you think we can all benefit from doctors sharing data?
