Applying Elinor Ostrom’s Design Principles to Guide Co-Design in Health(care) Improvement: A Case Study with Citizens Returning to the Community from Jail in Los Angeles County

Increased interest in collaborative and inclusive approaches to healthcare improvement makes revisiting Elinor Ostrom’s ‘design principles’ for enabling collective management of common pool resources (CPR) in polycentric systems a timely endeavour.

Ostrom proposed a generalisable set of eight core design principles for the efficacy of groups. To consider the utility of Ostrom’s principles for the planning, delivery, and evaluation of future health(care) improvement, the autors retrospectively applied them to a recent co-design project.

Three distinct aspects of co-design were identified through consideration of the principles. These related to: (1) understanding and mapping the system (2) upholding democratic values and (3) regulating participation. Within these aspects, four of Ostrom’s eight principles were inherently observed. Consideration of the remaining four principles could have enhanced the systemic impact of the co-design process.

Reconceptualising co-design through the lens of CPR offers new insights into the successful system-wide application of such ...

Since then, various forms of integrated care have been repeatedly proven effective across a range of care settings, patient populations, languages and cultures.

Integrated care models are well adapted to thrive during the Fourth Industrial Revolution in health care. Because integrated care has embraced flexibility and disruption, integrated care models will succeed—or even dominate—in a future that will demand flexibility.

Understanding the determinants of public trust in the health care system in China: an analysis of a cross-sectional survey

Despite increasing research attention on public trust in health care systems, empirical evidence on this topic in the developing world is limited and inconclusive. This paper examines the level and determinants of public trust in the health care system in China where the findings suggest that low public trust in China’s health care system is a potential problem. Improving health care experiences may be the most practical and effective way of improving trust in the health care system in China.
