Activities: Shared Learning and Innovation

The Collaborative brings experts and interested individuals into a shared community to create best practices, exchange ideas, identify gaps in CRP performance, and reach consensus on needed innovations. 

Shared learning takes place in:

  • Collaborative committees
  • International, national and regional meetings
  • Collaborative webinars
  • Collaborative trainings
  • Individualized conversations with a Collaborative expert

The Collaborative aims to identify gaps in current CRP best practices, and develop and test innovations to close these gaps through demonstration or research projects.

Collaborative demonstration projects are opportunities for the CRP community to develop and evaluate solutions to cutting edge issues that challenge CRPs, such as:

  • Strategies to assure full CRP implementation
  • Approaches to promote consistent use of CRP metrics
  • Adapting CRP models to new care settings
  • The role of legal representation in supporting patients participating in a CRP, and
  • Cooperative strategies for multiple insurers involved in the same adverse event

Collaborative research projects connect clinicians, organizations and liability insurers with researchers to rigorously study topics of shared interest, such as:

  • Identifying and measuring the impact of CRP best practices on the experiences of patients, providers, healthcare organizations, and medical professional liability insurers
  • Developing a large-scale registry of CRP cases and outcomes
  • Clarifying the relationship between CRPs and the quality and safety of healthcare
  • Measuring patients’ experiences of accountability across the lifespan of an adverse event
  • Developing and testing new strategies for collaboration between CRPs and regulators
