Wennberg International Collaborative (WIC) Spring Policy Meeting - “Reducing avoidable variation in Healthcare - A goal for regional strategies and actions”

The Wennberg International Collaborative will hold its next Spring Policy Meeting at the Management and Health Laboratory (MeS), Management Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa (Italy) on April 14-15, 2016.

The Wennberg International Collaborative (WIC) was founded in 2010 by Professor David Goodman of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice (U.S.) and Professor R. Gwyn Bevan of the London School of Economics and Political Science (U.K.). The goal of the Collaborative is to accelerate research into the causes and consequences of unwarranted health care variation across regions and providers. 

Prof. Nuti, full Professor of Management and regular contributor of the WIC Research Conferences, is leading the development of the meeting “Reducing avoidable variation in Healthcare - A goal for regional strategies and actions”. This WIC international conference calls for moving from the detection to the management of unwarranted variation within regional healthcare systems. In particular, this conference is expected to address the following questions: Which tools are proven to support managers and policy-makers in reducing variation? Which are the outcomes of efforts to reduce unwarranted variation at the regional level? What can we learn from these intiatives? How can performance evaluation be leveraged to increase awareness among policy-makers about geographic variations?
