What is Adaptive Design?

Adaptive Design (AD) is a clinically intelligent, self-sustaining system for rapidly developing, doing and improving patient-centered care within and across disciplines.

So what does that mean?

This system is an integrated set of methods, skills & tools that once learned will provide the know-how to hold everyone accountable for patient- centered innovation as part of their everyday work. In addition, it focuses on providing an environment where work is physically, emotionally & professionally safe for all those that deliver care.

How does it do that?

Kenagy & Associates, LLC uses AD to teach the frontline how to acknowledge & fix problems by creating innovative solutions, only using current resources. They learn through our Experience Adaptive Design online training course that can be accessed 24/7 and can be used in any department or unit. The course is meant to be minimal computer work, and a maximum learn-by-doing program so that the participants get involved from day 1.

At the same time, management and leadership are receiving their own training about the system to learn how set strategic direction to become a guided leader, rather than a fire chief! It takes a different way to think and react when your frontline is moving at a higher pace than any reports can show.

What is the goal of Adaptive Design?

We are working towards the purpose of Ideal Patient Care. That is the ability to provide a patient what they need when & where they need it. We have provided a sample of what AD can do. The results can really be that easy!
